There's not much on offer for a veggie that doesn't eat eggs but they were happy to let me order a veg burrito from the lunch menu at 9am, so that's what I had. It was pretty decent, although it lacked guacamole & was packed with sweetcorn. Very disappointing that they charge customers to use the wifi. It's directly opposite... More

Had a nice brunch here before heading off for a busy day of activities. The food was good, with a really good choice of food. A good mix of locals and tourists seem to frequent this place.

This is the best cafe in Vila. We come to Jill's every time we stay in Vanuatu and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and prices are good. Service is always friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for breakfast or lunch you cannot go past Jill's for taste or value. Their chocolate milkshakes are to die for, we have eaten there many many times and have never been dissapointed, try their blueberry pancakes or one of their burgers or omelettes, yuuuummmm .

If you like hamburgers, here are nice ones generously served with fries and giant drinks. Good time with kids who appreciate the meal of course. A plus, you are in the heart of the town and close to every stores for shopping before or after.

We had a late lunch of beefy nachos to share, and they brought it out on two plates! Yummy food, great service and busy with locals and visitors. Even comes with a fairly clean customer toilet. A great option for lunch.
