Do you fancy a wonderful breakfast on the beach in the morning? Eat while admiring the gorgeous scenery, just walk on over to Licks.
Some of the best food in San Pedro plus Mario and the staff are fantastic. Friendly and helpful, lots of advice.
Good food and drinks, great value and great people watching to be had. Coffee is one of the best we've had in San Pedro.

The menu changes daily based on the freshest local ingredients. Plus Mario will happily accommodate any special requests or tweaks to his menu.

Love the attention to details too. Such as making their own home made jam. Delicious on fry jacks. It's made from the tropical fruits grown locally and is some of the tastiest jam you've ever tried. So good you'll want to take some home (assuming you manage not to devour it).

We will be back.

It's located directly in front of the water taxi jetty, so a doddle to find. Just make sure you don't mistake it for Estel's further up the beach.

Thanks Mario.

Thanx for the review.
We try and pleas everybody that comes up to sit on our patio or on our upstairs deck. If our service doesn't speak to you, our food will.
I'm glad you liked the coffee.

It is called the service industry, is it not? Haha.

We are actually thinking about selling our jam, come back and buy some.

Thanx again guys,
Mario

Licks was my favorite restaurant in San Pedro. It has the best coffee, I have ever tasted, no sugar required. Make this restaurant your first spot upon arriving to the island. Order the fruit plate or bowl of oatmeal for a light breakfast. One night we tried the chicken barbeque with coconut rice, it was delicious. Not only is the food good, the view is tremendous, sitting at the restaurant looking out onto the bluest ocean. It was a pleasure meeting and talking with Mario the owner. He made us feel so welcomed, he was accomadating in many ways from apprising us of upcoming storms in the area, to valuable information helping us to easily naviagate around town. It meant alot to my husband and I, because we were new to the island. Ashley who also works there is very sweet and kind, she wears the most cutest tops and clothes. Licks is a gem of a restaurant not only for the food, service, ambience, but for the genuine good people who work there. Two weeks later, I still miss my morning cup of coffee and fruit plate with Mario, Ashley, and their dogs Blue and Patch.

Thanx for the review.
We try and do really good coffee, because coming from Canada, I know a good cup of coffee! Let's just put it this way, I won't drink coffee if it's bad. Haha. I try and be as friendly as you are to me. Accommodating guests and people who dine with you is apart of the service industry.
Ashley does wear cute stuff.
Miss you guys too!
Hope you come back soon.
Thanx again,
Mario

Food was great and the coffee was the best on the island. Try the fresh fruit plate for breakfast - it was loaded with fruit and oh so delicious! It was a a laid back place to sit & enjoy the ocean & the other guests. The owner Mario is very friendly & a excellent host!

We try to do a bit above everybody else's food on the island and that is what makes it so good. The fruit plate is one of my favourite breakfast dishes.
Thanx again,

Great place to grab a cup of coffee and watch the world pass by! The food was fantastic and the service impeccable. The owner Mario is great for conversation, offering a lot of information on the surrounding area. We'll definitely plan on being back here on our next trip.

This was our go-to, hang out spot in San Pedro. Mario and the staff are awesome and you can't beat the view. Good food and drinks, great value and great people!! The Key Lime Pie is the best! The menu changes daily based on the freshest ingredients of the day and Mario will always accommodate any special requests.

During our two weeks in Belize in September 2013, we chose to spend many afternoons and evenings here just hanging out, eating, drinking and socializing with other tourists and locals alike. Great company and good times. Do yourself a favor and stop by Licks. It's directly in front of the water taxi pier which makes for interesting people watching as well.

And if you are an animal lover like me, don't miss meeting Blue and Patch. Thanks for the hospitality and great memories, Mario!
