“Extra large breakfast ~ Low Price”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant while in Lautoka in April. Nearly every table was full so we thought it must be good. Decorated in a Mexican theme.

I have the big breakfast and big it was: bacon 2 eggs 2 sausages 2 hash browns toast, tomatoes and fruit. My husband had the pancake stack with 4 large thick pancakes and maple syrup also served with fruit. We both had tea and it was served in Mugs, very unusual for tea to be served in mugs, but it was great. We both couldn't eat it all.

Friendly, helpful staff and although very busy the service was fast. Free wifi also and toilets

We thoroughly enjoyed this meal and would definitely visit there again.

“Nice food, good prices, free wifi”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

This simple easy cafe caught our eye as we rode the bus into town. The food was good value and good to eat. Free wifi is a nice bonus for travellers and the staff were friendly.

“Great service, great coffee, plenty of food”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

After being disappointed by the coffee's and local cafe's in Fiji we stumbled upon The Chilli Tree Cafe in Lautoka.

What a wonderful surprise!

We made a talk with the waitress asking her about activities to do in Fiji, where we could find good local food and how we could mingle with the locals without being treated as a typical tourist.

While the waitress was giving us advise on local dishes, the manager who heard our conversation joined and provided us with reliable, good and genuine information about what to do, where to go, what the local tradition and culture is and while we thought it couldn't get any better she even provided us with a contact information! Absolutely amazing!

While we first decided only to get a brewed coffee, which was very good and the price was very decent, fj$ 3,-(far below the prices of the touristic places) we were feeling quite hungry and decided to get something to eat. We ordered a full breakfast (15,-) and a beef burger (15,-). The full breakfast consisted of: coffee/tea, 2 big sausages, bacon with eggs, 4 big toasts and a cup with beans. The breakfast was so plenty that I hadn't have to eat for the next 8 hours. Not only that, but the breakfast was tasty as well (albeit it wasn't a local dish). The beef burger was served with fries and salad and tasted delicious as well.

For the first time we came across genuine locals not focussed on ripping you off as much money as possible.

Thanks a lot staff! You made our stay in Fiji a lot more pleasurable!

Ow, and not to forget: free wifi, which is very hard to find in Fiji
