Such a small and adorable diner! The chaya pockets are great, and they're known for the fry jacks. Breakfast is quite inexpensive and very satisfying. You can get the local flavors, but they also make decent American-diner classics like pancakes and hash browns. Ideal place to try local favorites - that's where they really shine.

Opens at 6 and you are relatively assured of a seat before 7 without waiting. Clean. Good coffee. Great service. .A recognizable American breakfast menu. Reasonably priced. Popular.

Pop's was recommended for breakfast by the owner of our hotel. It was a great find. The coffee was delicious and they were very generous with the fry jacks with breakfast. Very reasonable prices.

This past November 2014 was our first trip to Belize and the first time in San Ignacio. Great town and wonderful people! Martin, the manager of HomeHill Apartments (where we stayed) suggested that we try out Pops for breakfast. Let me tell you, we where not disappointed. We had the eggs, bacon and fry jacks and beans. Boy oh boy... More

Sometimes price, atmospheric charm and good food come together so perfectly -- when they do, I come back again and again and again. For a small diner-style eatery, this place is delightful. Get here early though as the place (only about six booths) fills up quickly with locals and tourists alike. By local standards, service was outstandingly quick and courteous... More

Food was delicious and fry jacks were big and puffy. Coffee tastes very good. Cheap prices too. I got my food, fry jacks, coffee, and tip for under 10$ USD. I tried to go the day before but they are very busy because they are so popular. Have a second choice in mind or go at an off time if... More

Food is excellent and the staff is Superb! Lisa (the owner) and staff epitomizes the humble and accommodating nature of Belizeans. This is also a place that is frequented by Belizeans for the authentic flavor and relaxed atmosphere. Keep up the good work.

A very affordable breakfast. The fry jacks were the best I've ever eaten. Location is one street north of Burns Ave (main street in town) and about 1/2 a block west. It's small with few tables but even if you have to wait a few minutes it's worth it. The waitress was very, very nice. I'll definitely go back.

Quick. Open early. Tastey. Safe. Friendly. Affordable. Choice place to grab some breakfast. This should be the first place you try for your early morning rise before you hit your tours.

This is a nice hole-in-the-wall diner with a very good breakfast burrito. We also had the scrambled eggs with chaya (spinach), which had a bit too much chaya for my liking, but overall it was a great value for breakfast.
