Jill’s Cafe is always good. The brownies are awesome. Needs air conditioning! The burgers are huge the drinks are cold, worth a pop in and quick lunch.

If you like eating American food the experience is good. If not, then it's just another food outlet.

Jill's Cafe is definitely worth a visit for an amazing breakfast of pancakes, waffles and the best milkshake you'll ever have! They also serve great lunch options, coffee, cake and ice-cream. Always make sure I visit while in Port Vila
