Breakfast is all they do

Went for breakfast. This is a family run place, recently opened by a Canadian family. They are close to the harbour. I had a breakfast sandwich, which was like a Denver, with tomatoes. It had a side of bananas sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. The sandwich was good enough...maybe a bit bland, but... read more

We first went for Tuesday night dessert. It was so good that we went back for breakfast twice! The homemade cinnamon rolls and banana cinnamon toast are wonderful! The service was just right.

Just had an amazing breakfast at Friends Near the Pier, just at the end of the boardwalk with views of the water and port. This was our 3rd and final day in Placencia, and I'm so glad we stopped here for breakfast. Definitely the best breakfast we've had, and certainly the most friendly service. The breakfast burrito was delicious, with... More

The new owners of the place, certainly know how to be friendly. I had driven into Placencia, hoping to find breakfast after 12 noon. We walked up to FRIENDS, only to find a rope across the entrance with a closed sign hanging on it. After letting out a disappointed sigh, I saw the owner coming towards us. Long story short....they... More

We go to this restaurant almost every morning for their superb cinnamon buns and coffee. We are greeted warmly every morning. Refills of coffee is free. We like to look at the sailboats in the harbour.

Very friendly, clean, great service. Friends hasn't been open long and they've already made many friends in Placencia. Nice breakfast, basic cooking, and fresh, Basic. Owners are hard working, so friendly. Up to the left of the pier in Placencia.

After 2 weeks away from home (Prince George BC) it was a pleasure to enjoy the hospitality as well as fluffy pancakes, cinnamon french toast and endless coffee to start the day! We wish this Alberta family every success as they live their dream ... God bless.

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. Beautiful wraparound porch for outdoor seating. They even offer a laundry service! Only open till noon (at time of review). Also, owners were discussing adding to the menu which already includes omelettes,... More
