I found the food items on the menu to be a bit pricey and really fancy for the kind of place Caye Caulker is, they open early so we came for breakfast around 7am and sat right in the front and had an amazing view of the sun shining on the ocean, and enjoyed the strong breeze. We weren't looking for anything big to eat so the server proposed a small breakfast sandwich off the menu, which was very tasty and exactly what we were looking for. If you can get the front table, it's very enjoyable.

Thank Casssssssss

We had a fantastic lunch here. The sandwiches and panini's are delicious. We also ordered a Greek Salad that was large enough to feed a family. The flies can be a little annoying, but that seems to be the way it is on many beachfront establishments. Good service. Delicious food!

We ate here several times during our stay at Caye Caulker.
It is a teeny tiny shop with a nice view out to the beach.
Sandwiches, especially for breakfast, are quite good, as are the cappuccinos and smoothies (the coffee machine broke on our second visit, and the regular drip coffee was just so-so).
As other reviewers have noted prices are quite high, but quality is good. I reccomend it if you are really jonesing for a sandwich with some veggies or a smoothie.
Also, the workspace is very small so the staff seem to get overwhelmed when there are a lot of orders, if you go be prepared to take it slow.

1.) Price - Hugely expensive. I paid almost $20 for a small sandwich. To put this into perspective my dinner the night before was a large lobster, with shrimp skewers, rice, salad and bread. That cost me $20. So for a measly sandwich you're paying the same as you would for a lobster dinner at a nice place.

2.) Food quality - below average. The bread is really dry, there is a bakery in town so why not get fresh bread every morning?? I had a BLT and the amount of bacon was really really light. Overall not good.

Nice location though......but you can do better for food.

3.) Service - about as disinterested as it gets. Slow to bring simple things like drinks out.

My friend and I have now eaten here three times since we arrived 4 days ago and we really enjoy it! You can get goat cheese in your veggie sandwich, the French toast plate was so delicious as it was cut up bagettes, with cinnamon and side of syrup. The yogurt and fresh fruit bowl was yummy. They have more to offer too but we only had certain items and were very pleased with the selections. Good view of the beach/docks in front of us and I truly recommend going. Enjoy!!!!
