“Awesome fry jacks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2011

We had the most amazing stuffed fry jacks here! They serve breakfast all day so you can enjoy a fry jack whenever you want. They also had a great variety of shakes but we had iced coffees instead.

“Great breakfast with awesome view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2011

The owner of our hotel recommended we eat here for breakfast and we loved it! I had huevos rancheros and he had eggs with fryjacks and bacon. Both were delicious. There is a large smoothie menu and we really enjoyed the mango pineapple one. The best part is that you are right on the end of the peninsula overlooking the Caribbean sea!

“The best smoothies you will ever put in your mouth!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2011

We recently visited Placencia and were walking down the famous narrow street there. When we got to the end at the beach we passed this little place and smelled some good smells coming out. We decided to stop and try it out. After that first stop we went back several times over the course of the next week. You start to get addicted to the smoothies they make. They make them from scratch, from fresh fruit. It takes a few extra minutes but they are worth it. The food is also great and not expensive. If you visit Placencia go to the end of the road at the Shell station and walk over to the beginning of the narrow street and you will find the Shak. You will not be sorry.
