Every time we go to PV we go to Jill's for lunch. The food is always good, the burgers are great, the menu has a variety of dishes, many of which we have tried over the years and hardly ever disappointed. The ladies serve with a smile and are friendly and smiling. Service is quite good. Great for a quick... More

While we don't usually want or expect American food on international travel as we prefer local options, we had been referred to Jill's Café. After a cheeseburger special for my husband and a quesadilla for me, we were pleased with our choice. It was clean, friendly, and reasonably priced. Easy location on the main shopping/business street.

Clean and friendly with a pretty standard lunch menu. Great cup of tea. Enjoyed the grilled cheese sandwich while the rain poured down.

We had several lunches here over our stay and the food was always excellent. Homemade lemonade is delicious and highly recommended. Service was excellent with gorgeous staff.

Jill's Cafe is a great place to go if you are missing your fix for burgers and chips. Their menu is ok and the food is very good, however my favourite there is the thickshakes. A little pricey but well worth a visit.

Just for a change, we thought we'd try 'Jills' for breakfast instead of the usual hotel offering, and we're glad we did! My wife had a 3 egg vegetarian omelette, and myself the mini-american breakfast which consisted of toast, fried eggs with the option of bacon or sausages, and both servings were plentiful and more than enough. Wife had a... More

Stopped in here on a warm morning and after perusing the menu and swayed by the staff had a banana thickshake instead of a coffee. Was the best choice. Didn't have anything to eat so cant comment on the food.

Thank molly3
