VISIT THEM TODAY: The Pacific Jewell Gift Shop is seven years old. It has added a cafe for your convenience and enjoyment.

Pacific Jewell Gift Shop and Garden Café has come a long since its humble beginnings.

Owned by Taua Paul and Vivienne Phillips, the business has blossomed over the years to the point is has now received TripAdvisors 2015 Café Certificate of Excellence.

The Pacific Jewell Gift Shop is seven years old. It has extended with another shop located at the SNPF Plaza in Apia town.

The garden café was established just 3 years ago and has become a popular choice amongst tourists and locals.

The café was set up to compliment the gift shop thus creating a tourist destination where guests can appreciate and purchase the beautiful handicrafts, printed, fabrics, carvings and more whilst enjoying a meal in their tropical garden café.

The family owned and operated business has always been a dream for Vivienne. She admits though that it would not have been possible to realise her dream without the encouragement of her husband, Taua.

When you visit the Pacific Jewell Gift Shop & Garden Café located in Levili, you drive into a concrete jungle.

But as you walk through their doors, you enter a colorful, vibrant and beautifully displayed Samoan art and décor covered gift shop, into the hidden tropical garden café with a serene atmosphere perfect enough to enjoy breakfast or lunch.

It isn’t too far away from town, but still is a getaway from the busy streets of Apia. That is what makes this destination unique.

Pacific Jewell Garden Café offers a fresh, light, and healthy alternative through their menu selection with a tropical twist to some classical European dishes.

They also source their produce from local farmers and certified organic local farmers.

They offer delicious homemade goods, as well as their signature Sasalapa Juice.

Whether you’re popping in for fluffy waffle covered in golden syrup or their homemade wraps, Pacific Jewell café sets the scene for serenity, peace and enjoyment.

Just before or after a light meal, the gift shop is just in reach where top carvers showcase their greatest work for sale amongst the beautifully hand printed materials and delicate handicrafts that fill the store.

Printed materials are also customizable to fit your personal preference and even popular amongst corporate groups.

Their Levili location is open for breakfast and business on Mon-Fri at 7:30 AM- 4PM, Saturday 7:30 AM- 2 PM and closed Sunday.
