“The Wet Spot is the Best Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

We have been coming to Roatan yearly for the last six years and no trip is complete without time spent in the Wet Spot. Food, cold beer, and good company are always on the The iced latte and a baleada are a can't miss for breakfast before that first dive and the beer is always cold for after. Love the mural at the new Wet Spot next to Tyll's and across from the Blue Marlin. Say Hi to Michelle!

“Awesome pancakes, great coffee, cold beer, and fun folks !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

We have been here in West End for over three weeks now and must say that " The Wet Spot " is absolutely the most fun place for all around good food, cold beers, tasty coffees and drinks. Whether you choose pancakes for breakfast, Philly Cheesesteaks Sandwiches or Spicy Chicken wraps for lunch, or whatever else Michelle makes you cant go wrong. Great service, ( thanks Margaret and Sarah ) friendly staff and central location make this place not only a must stop for a quick bite between dives but also a consistent place for after dive drinks and conversation. We truly have enjoyed our time at " The Wet Spot " and will continue to make it our kitchen away from home for the remainder of our incredible visit to West End. You guys are the best !!

“Doesn't get better than this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

Best spot in the West End for conversation,coffee and cuisine;-)
(Couldn't resist;-)) Seriously though, Michelle brews up excellent barista favs using the West End's only authentic espresso machine,brewing local beans freshly ground every morning. All I can say is yum!!!! Whether it's a latte in the morning or an icy cold mocha on a beautiful warm afternoon the Wet Spot is the best (spot;-)) The food is fresh and cooked à la minute~delish! Also, amazingly well priced. The location is a prime West End location with one of the area's best dive shops (Reef Gliders) attached. Great place for coffee,cooking,conversation, relaxing and later in the evening a mean game of Texas Hold 'em.
I have a group of Wet Spot pics on flickr (lockedhalo)

“Good price, Great food and a beautiful spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2011

I have lived on the island for a year and a half. This has become my favorite restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The coffee is great and the pancakes will change your life! Dinner is only served on the weekends and Monday I think but the meals are incredible; filet mignon with salad and potatoes for $8.50 or shrimp pasta for $5. Check it out!
