Best Black Beans in Hopkins!

We were only able to eat once at Sunnyside-up. Her hours and our stomachs were off schedule. Our visit was a late lunch, but I wanted breakfast. That was no problem for them. I had black beans, eggs, bacon and fry jack, and it was superb! My husband had grilled grouper, and he was just as pleased... read more

Clean, friendly, and yum! We both had the Belizean Breakfast and I'd say look no further. Scrambled eggs creamy and well seasoned with a sprinkle of cheese. Crispy bacon. Refried beans to die for! Fresh fruit, and...fry jacks! A bunch of them! Hot, savory, perfect, fry jacks! When ordering I wasn't 100% sure what this local favorite was exactly, but... More

My daughter and I ate breakfast at Sunnyside-up several times, trying different dishes from their large menu. We loved everything. The French toast is the best I'vce ever had. The service was excellent. Highly recommend this place for breakfast or lunch.

Came on a Monday and waited over an hour to get served. My breakfast was a simple eggs, toast and hash browns. For the portion size, even for US prices it was overpriced. Someone else at the table got a stuffed jack, which admittedly was really good, but still not work the wait or the price. Maybe it was just... More

For some reason we came here on a Monday and the place was just packed two of the owners workers didn't show in the wait wasn't bad at all the food was fantastic. The menu ranges solely from items they get or have on hand. The jerk chicken was great!

We ate breakfast here during our stay in Hopkins. Penny had the Belize breakfast and I had the stuffed fry jack. Mine was definitely the winning entree. We also had orange juice that was very good.

We stopped here upon arriving in Hopkins and loved it. Each meal is freshly prepared to order. It is lik eating home, only better because you are not cooking. We had great conversation with owner and pork chops were very good. Don't expect fancy, just good food and good time. Remember: you are on island time in Hopkins so relax... More
