“Brilliant Benny Cakes”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

This is the best meal I've had in a long time... so so tasty! Was fine dining without the expense. Lovely couple who own it, they gave us some great tips for where to go on the island too. Aussie style coffee was great... I only have positive things to say about this place. Don't miss the Benny Cakes.

“Well Done Mates!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch after finding it on trip advisor. This couple has only been in San Pedro for 2 months and they are off to a great start. The food is fabulous and visually yummy as well. They are very nice people. Try the Spicy Chicken Burger it was fabulous.

“DELICIOUS and Different Food in San Pedro”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

First, Jo and Sheldon are so much fun and the perfect hosts in beautifully air conditioned San Pedro cafe. Best coffee in town. That's all you need to know but also know this...the breakfast is INSANE! Coconut french toast? Fat fluffy hotcakes sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and drizzled with dark chocolate syrup are DIVINE. Everything here is delish.

Mesa Cafe is a place you want to visit a few times while you are in San Pedro. Love it.

And don't be scared of the scotch eggs. They are also super tasty.

“Aussie spirit alive in Belize”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

You would never guess that Joanne and Sheldon were first-time restaurateurs of less than three weeks. For lunch, my bride went right for the shrimp burger, and its fragrance arrived at the table first. Generous shrimp and wonderful spices made every bite sumptuous. Sheldon helpfully steered me to an item I'd overlooked, the scotch eggs. Double layer of pork and sage mix is flash fried around 4 lightly hard boiled eggs. I put hot sauce on just because I like it, but they were delicious just as served. We also had a side of onion fries, think deconstructed onion rings with just the perfect amount of crunchy batter clinging to the pieces of onion. I couldn't eat more than about eight pounds of those!

“So glad, it is open.”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Have gone to Mesa several times. I LOVE their Eggs Benny. Such a unique and wonderful spin on a great dish. The homemade pico is excellent. The owners are friendly and inviting. We live in San Pedro and this is our favorite breakfast spot. If you are visiting, just look across the street from the school. You won't be sorry you did.
