The emphasis stands on serving the highest quality specialty coffee drinks, pastries, sandwiches, salads signature dishes and specials available in the Cayo area. We also do catering for breads and desserts. The Guava Limb Cafe has a breezy Caribbean feel with a European flavor. Organic in nature, our foods are farm-to-table local, fresh and does not have additional preservatives/flavor enhancers. The decor of the Cafe includes handmade furniture from around the world, and table ware is contemporary with simple lines to highlight the beautiful presentations of our cuisine. The Macal Park is a focal point for our patrons with the bustle of children playing, people strolling, as well as the lovely natural setting. We have a moderately priced, casual restaurant serving fine high quality food. The service style of our restaurant is a table service with a fine selection of wines. We have a relaxed atmosphere that encourages conversations between tables.

“Wow! Best food in Belize! Wonton Heaven.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The Guava Limb Cafe is our new favourite restaurant. Their menu is short, sweet(especially the desserts), and priced better than most. They are like a 'fusion bistro,' and have the most mouth watering paninnis you'll ever get. This is our new lunch and early dinner spot, and we average 5 times a week at this point; we want to try everything on the menu...thrice!

The wonton platter is something we get every other visit, and it'll fill you up. The Asian bowl is fantastic. They also have a selection of salads that are really enjoyable. They have chicken fingers for kids, althought the vegetarian paninni goes well with ours too.

The location is supreme, being on the Macal River Park, at the end of Burns avenue, just a block from the 'tourist zone,' so you aren't in the thick of it all, and it's peaceful. The service is great too, as is the ambiance. It's in a restored historic house, and they actually bought it to preserve it. Awesomely done too, and there's tons of art all over the place to check out from many different local artists. I'm quickly getting pictures of all the food items, so you'll see those here soon.

The smoothies and coffee selections are amazing. The dragon fruit smoothie is a must, as is the mango smoothie. The desserts are fabulous, and the key lime pie is a must, as is the flourless chocolate cake. And there are so many others, like the tiramisu, that is to die for. You'll just have to go check it out for yourself. See you there.
