Basic breakfast specials, amazing fresh juices but could use more servers/kitchen help. Went around 7-8am and the porch was about half full of people. It seemed that there was only one server. Other than that, great meal and loved the outdoor seating.

We enjoyed breakfast on the beach. Cinnamon rolls were amazing! As always, Belize is about the people you meet, and the owners here were great.

This is a great place for a home made breakfast or lunch. They are open early, usually by 6 or 6:30 and they close early, around 2. The food is prepared by Margaret, one of the owners and she is a good cook.

And definitely one of the best breakfasts we had on our entire trip to Belize! Delicious sandwiches and very sweet owners and staff! Try the french toast banana bread- best one we ever had!

We ate here twice. Once we had the breakfast burritos. The next time I had the banana bread French toast and a fruit bowl. Both times the food was excellent. The service was fast and friendly and the owners greeted everyone. Never ending good coffee....More

This place is a pleasure to visit. Owned and operated by a nice and friendly ex-pat couple, they serve a great breakfast, in a friendly environment just steps from the pier and the beach. Their egg sandwich is outstanding and is only enhanced when ordered...More
