Delicious breakfast, best we found on the island

Breakfast of pineapple pancakes and bacon/eggs was delicious and very filling. The service and decor is very casual like the entire island of Tobago. But in no rush on island time it's a great spot and relaxing friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend and will be back. Food is amazing and best bought... read more

Recommended to us by a local expat, it doesn't look much from the outside, but don't let that put you off. The food is lovely and good value for money

When they said they were a breakfast place, I was excited. Then we were seated at two tables with bird feces all over and waited about twenty minutes for service. It should be noted that there was only two other tables in the "restaurant". The food looked appetizing, especially after waiting a further hour, but after seeing the dirty plate... More

The wait for food is painful! Waiting for food will test your patience! Prices are expensive! Food is minimal and bland. Nothing special. Very disappointing.

Do not go if you are in a rush. Think of it more as going to an older couples home, and they are going to feed you. Busy, is one table ahead of you and they won't let you have a menu right away. But, they are very sweet, and if you are willing to chill, it's enjoyable. The pineapple... More

Stopped in here for breakfast a couple of the times. We were told the service would be slow but could live with that. Food was ok but other orders the same came out with different things which was confusing. The coffee cups couldn't have been much smaller if they tried. The price is over the top and compared to Rituals... More

After 2 attempts to eat here we succeeded in the 2nd try, but was massively dissapointed. Lack of good customer service Toilets and kitchen area unsanitary Over an hour to be served breakfast Order was provided and repeated twice (was still delivered incorrectly) Final bill incorrect Absolute shambles. ..never recommending this place.

We have breakfast at the House of Pancakes at least once on each trip to Tobago. The setting is Tobago-casual with tables on a covered porch. It's is very at-home, low key and relaxed.My first visit was around 2002 and I keep going back and I'm never disappointed. The owner is friendly and jovial, the service is prompt and the... More

I've heard my friend talk about this place so I decided to give it a try. The food was delicious but we had to wait long to get our order. Not much vegetarian items on the menu which was an inconvenience, my husband had only fruit salad which I thought was overpriced. There were little black birds everywhere eating stuff... More
