A Must Visit

When on Ambergris Caye, go to Estel's. Great vibe and food right on the beach. Order off the giant chalkboard menu, grab a table inside on the sand floor or outside literally on the beach and watch the world go by. Great breakfast.

This was our favorite place. We went every morning for breakfast. Banana pancakes amazing. Great morning drinks. Beautiful setting, right on the beach. Wish they served dinner too.

Seafront restaurant - a bit rustic but quite charming,. Good wait staff, Lots of options on the menu blackboard! Breakfast all day - but other options too. Cash only so plan ahead. Excellent for breakfast - we went our last day - if we had gone sooner we would have gone back again...

You can go everyday of the week for breakfast and never get tired of the excellent food and the atmosphere! Might try it for lunch one day (if I miss breakfast! ). The fresh juices are good, everything is fresh and made to order. Cash only!

My boyfriend and I loved this place so much, we went here twice for breakfast. I had the mayan egg and he had breakfast burrito. Both were delicious. We also split the banana pancakes - the best part was the jelly on top. The view alone is worth it. Also, friendly service.

Loved the sand floors and views were spectacular. Didn't have breakfast but had the chicken stew and rice. It was very good.

Good food. Nice shade, breeze and atmosphere. Good place to sit, relax, drink morning or mid-morning coffee and watch people walk by. They keep you coffee cup full.
