Amazing vegan and vegetarian options and wonderful smoothies! Just check when it is open! This was closed for dinner on a number of days we were there so we ended up going for lunch.

We went there on our last day and the breakfast was too good. We enjoyed the meal and the server was fast and quick. The price was also reasonable. Maybe the best breakfast we had at Placencia.

My wife and I are here 4 times during our stay as they have excellent vegan options and wonderful smoothies. The atmosphere of the pier is also ideal. My only wish is that it was open for dinner!

We loved the seaweed shake! The shrimp quesadillas were good too, but I'd skip the conch fritters. It's in a good location at the end of the peninsula by the pier. I'd recommend it.

Conch fritters were wonderful.....they could use some more fans when it's warm. Didn't try any of the smoothies but they looked wonderful and the people at the next table said they tasted great.

Our food here wasn't very pricey and didn't knock us off our feet. But it could be a good place to stop when walking around as the location was pretty cool, right next to the dock at the south part of town.

While my husband was swimming at the beach a few yards away and I was feeling the humidity and heat (we live in Minnesota!!), I noticed "The Shak" and decided to get in the shade, in front of a fan, and enjoy a drink. Wow!...More
