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

Breakfast on Day 1 of our trip to Hopkins in Belize. Fantastic food and even better staff. The owner Maureen spent time with us, telling us how she makes her awesome refried black beans...the secret is the amount of time it takes to make it. They really are about the best I ever have had. Kris went for the Stuffed... More

Hungry for some hearty Belizean breakfast? Stop by Iris' Sunnyside-up for some awesome stuffed fry jacks and omelets. I also had a tamarind juice for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by its citrusy, tangy yet refreshing taste. The owner was very friendly and most conversational. I really enjoyed the quiet, quaint vibe they had. Price was reasonable. Enjoy!

We stopped here on our way back from the Marina just as they were switching from the breakfast to lunch menu. After ordering the owner chatted with us until our food arrived. She was incredibly friendly and willing to answer all of our questions about life in Belize. My family agreed that after traveling for several days together we were... More

This is such a great restaurant for breakfast. In my opinion, the belizean beans for breakfast are by far the best in the area. Marie is so friendly and welcoming. You feel like you are part of the family. We love coming here for breakfast, and the service is top notch!

My husband and I ate breakfast at Sunnyside-up this morning, the French toast was excellent as were my pancakes which were both served with Syrup! Rather than the typical honey that is offered in most other places. We felt the price was reasonable for the quality of food. The service by Joe was top notch and this led us to... More

My husband and I arrived late in the day to spend just one night in Hopkins. We were both very hungry......The locals recommended Chef Rob's place but we thought it was too pricey and didn't stay (we should have)....so we dropped by Sunny side up because it looked like a nice place to try......my husband ordered the pork chop dinner...
