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.

You will get a fantastic French press for the same price as anyone else in Hopkins. You will also get great service. if you are real lucky the owner will be able to visit with you. She's a font of knowledge of the area and Belize!

We had several meals at Sunnyside Up! Breakfast, lunch and dinner -- loved the pancakes and fresh fish. The owner, Maureen, was so inviting and we loved our many conversations with her. The sitting area is very relaxing and the wait staff was great! This is the only restuarant in the area that we ate at more than once. If... More

Thanks to God my wife and I have found that small "island" Sunnyside-Up in Hopkins. While everybody in the village were looking for our valet and a small chance to robe us this place was so refreshing! The service was fast (nobody is trying to please guests in that village) and professional. Joe really knew that making people happy is... More

We had a traditional Belize breakfast - just excellent, and super music - '60's Motown. Very clean and close to Tipple Tree.
