Jill's is great for lunch or a light meal. Staff are very friendly and while the food is quite basic it's yummy and comforting.

I love my coffee hot but this was ridiculous. It was so hot it burnt my mouth. Large cafe in middle of town. No aircon just fans and it’s hot.

Lovely service. Had the best banana and choc smoothie there. Used real banana too. Was very good. Would recommend them installing air con though.

Nice to find a place that served big meals at reasonable prices. And it was great to get a thick shake with fresh milk when so many places rely on long life milk. Nothing trendy or gourmet, but consistently good food.
