Good beans

We came here after recommendations from the hostel owner and locals. The food was tasty and was of a good size. The service was good and the staff were friendly.

"Like many places we ate breakfast in Belize, breakfast of eggs is the way to go. Here I went the whole way and had the fry jacks. Good stuff. You'll be full when you walk out and your wallet wont miss much. Friendly service"

Great breakfast at a great price. Try the Fry Jacks. If you are planning on catching a boat, show up at 8:30, arrange a time and wait patiently here with breakfast. They will call you when ready.

Stopped at this place on the way out to Tobacco Caye for breakfast. Fresh, hot fry jacks were perfect. We had them two ways: stuffed and plain. Stuffed were filled with eggs, beans, ham and cheese. Plain were great pillows of fluffy fried dough. Yum.

Ate here a few times. Food was delicious. My wife is vegetarian and they were happy to whip up something not usually on their menu. Very friendly. Great place to get information about heading to cayes or going on fishing/snorkelling trips

You'll get everything Belizean on the menu here, plus hamburgers, at a great value. This is the meeting place for all boat trips out to Tobacco Caye, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The ambiance could best be described as utilitarian but basically clean.

I was traveling with my boyfriend who doesn't speak/understand much English, and I have a slight hearing problem. So, the complete lack of menu was difficult for us as I had to hear and understand the waitress and translate everything she said. Also, as there was no menu, we have no clue what we should have been charged. She was... More

The fry jacks are great! Often they have fresh juice. Great value. Consistent good food. Coffee is nescafe. This is my "go-to-place" when in Dangriega. Nothing to look at from outside. right by dock where oen can catch a boat to Tobacco.
