Good Breakfast and Dinner

The happy lobster located on front street has good food, a well timed happy hour, free wi-fi and interesting artwork (paintings) on the walls.

Another truly great little breakfast place, which was always pretty busy but not packed. Great menu with local p[lus american dishes, never did try dinner but always smelled delicious, just too many good places to eat and so little time to do so!

I was on Caye Caulker for over a week, so after having such a great meal/time the first time around I ended up coming back a couple times for different meals. I think dinner was my favourite, especially since it comes with a great happy "hour" special that me and some friends took advantage of a few times! Breakfast was... More

Ask for Jessica the waitress! she is way cute and offered the best service on the island. Miriam, the owner, should be featured on Diners, Drive Inn's and Dives with Guy Fieri as she has an awesome menua and can even pull of "meatloaf" down here. Best coffee on the island hands down you Java lovers!! A must vist for... More

This was where we went for breakfast on our first morning on Caye Caulker and we weren't disappointed. Decent coffee (not easy to find in Belize) and fluffy omelettes stuffed with lobster meat and salsa. Not cheap, but a very good deal for the price.

My wife and I really liked the food, some of the best lobster we had on caye caulker. They were out of many different drinks, including the belikin on tap, which was the only letdown.

Just ate dinner here. I had the grilled lobster with garlic butter. My husband had spaghetti Bolanese while I wondered if ordering pasta in a seafood place was wise! I have never had a decently cooked spiny lobster prior to this and was quite surprised at how good it was. The locals in this area take great pride in harvesting... More

Right across from the ocean, great view of the barrier reef, free wi-fi and the watermelon juice is delicious. Went often for breakfast.

They were out of lobster this morning, so my partner couldn't have the lobster omelette. His eggs over easy were a bit too runny but the bacon was good. French toast had lots of cinnamon but was uninspired. The servers were pleasant and it was nice to sit on the front porch and watch people go by. Good prices: 2... More
