budgeting for Caye Caulker - typical food/drink prices?

I'm hoping to visit Caye Caulker in December, and am having trouble finding estimates on food and drink prices. I'll likely stay in a hostel that has a kitchen (Yuma's looks great!), so I'm curious about typical prices in restaurants and bars, as well as prices for things we can prepare at home.

I've found a lot of good information about diving and other activities, but if there's anything specific I shouldn't miss, any additional advice would be welcome too :-)

Thanks for the help!

we were there in the end of june - first of july. food and drink really depend on your tast and wants. a couple of folks were grilling on the street selling kbobs or fish tacos for a couple bucks. some of the more official cafe types were from $5 to $8 for a meal, all the way up to Habeneros which was around $25 for appetizer, entree and a beer or 2.

casa nova pizza was about $12 bucks for a whole pizza. the bakery was super cheap for great snack goods.

bottle beer was from $1 to $2.50 most places. found draft beer for $1 also.

we did not cook for ourselves even though we had a kitchen. we opted to eat at as many different places as possible.

hope this helps you out.
