We added a freshly made watermelon drink to that, and really enjoyed! The owner sat out and spoke with us and... read more

My wife and I ventured off our resort in search of a different option and came upon this restaurant. This is a must have if your looking for a wonderful breakfast. The food was amazing and the FryJacks are to die for, best in Belize! Staff was very attentive. Make sure to try the freshly squeezed juices, they are unbelievable!... More

We stopped in here for breakfast after kayaking at Sittee Point marina. The patio setting is very cheerful the Belizean breakfast had by both my husband and I was delicious! The refried beans were one of the best things I have ever eaten! If we’re ever back in Hopkins we’ll be heading back to Sunny Side Up!

We had lunch and dinner at Iris. Friendly staff and an attractive menu. We really loved the Shrimp tacos and the iced coffe served with ice Cream. An extra thought to the waiter, who helped us with a taxi to Dangriga when we missed the bus

Great breakfast place. Open early. But you need to bring a little time with you, the service is slow, even for BZ standards
