Friendly, charming, fresh and tasty

Charming spot with friendly staff. Happy to customize your order and vegetarian friendly. I ordered fish tacos, which weren't on the menu, but they made them for us. So fresh and tasty. The homemade salsa is delicious. My husband loved the sauce in his chicken burrito. Fair prices for this area.

The food at this restaurant was very tasty and came with good sides. The waiting staff were attentive and polite and the owner was lovely. She came over to talk to us and was very warm and open. It is expensive if you are on a budget - but no more so than other restaurants in the village. They will... More

Oh the joy of having an entire carafe of French-Pressed Coffee with fresh cream set before us 1st thing in the morning by a sweet waitress with a beautiful smile and warm greeting. The bacon, eggs, hash-browns and toast were cooked perfectly. The owner was a delight to chat with and a wealth of information. We will be back every... More

The staff is very friendly and accommodating with requests on how you like your eggs, the bacon is perfectly cooked, the Pancakes are AWESOME! Try everything they have... More

Would recommend. Good breakfast, lunch and dinner specials. Nice mix of local dishes. Seating is outside on front porch, good for watching "traffic" on Hopkin's main road.

The Sunny Side Up varies its menu. The Belizean food we are included coconut crusted fish in coconut milk, grilled fish and jerk pork chops. All were delicious.
