Owners are super friendly. Must try the Tropical pancakes and fresh baked cinnamon rolls. Conveniently located at the beginning of the "Narrowest Street" and right off the beach.

This is a great little open-air restaurant. I particularly enjoyed their very tasty breakfasts and, most especially, the HOMEMADE cinnamon buns and lovely desserts. Very friendly and accommodating, this is a family-owned business with new owners who are doing a great job! The restaurant is very clean, as are the restrooms. Good work and good luck, folks!

Enjoyed meeting the new owners ( a family from Canada) of this local place. Only open until noon-ish and served breakfast that was ok. Should try to expand their menu to include more local type food (pancakes not so much). They did make a nice rum punch when we stopped in close to closing for a quick drink. I wish... More

We were walking down the boardwalk one night & stopped to talk as Christine was watching her 3 awesome boys fooling around while the rain started. As parents of grown boys it was great to see the rambunctiousness of the boys. We went back the next morning for breakfast & met the whole family. New to Placencia, this Alberta family... More

Just enjoyed an awesome veggie omelet, melt in your mouth cinnamon bun and nice, strong coffee with great harbor view. We will be back Ryan and family. Thank you so much!

This Canadian couple with 3 small kids has decided to start a new life by running this breakfast place close to the water. We just went in for coffee but when we started to talk to the owner we realized we needed to try his tropical pancakes. No regrets! We wish this family lots of luck and suggest that they... More

Me and my boyfriend spend almost two weeks in placencia. Friends near the pier have defiantly the most reasonable prices in town.
