“Best smoothies in Placencia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

Great breakfast spot. We ate breakfast there regularly. Perfect start to our days in paradise. Smoothies were tropical heaven and the bagels with capers and tomatoes were fabulous.

“The Shak -- A Menu Designed Just For Us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

This was our go-to for the best banana pancakes (as fluffy as clouds), veggie-packed quesadillas (with cauliflower even!), ceviche, killer mango-coconut shakes, cold beers during an unexpected downpour and a hefty blackened chicken sandwich with pineapple slaw. Consistently impressive and above-friendly service.

The smoothies are amazing! The fish taco's were worth a second trip - just the right amount of heat. Great view of the pier and sea

“Great location -- on the Beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

The smoothies are very tasty and also very slow to be made if there are more than 5 guest. I think they only have one blender and service is quite slow when your drinks are given to the wrong table. There breakfast is ok, be sure to tell them you want toast with your breakfast if what you want is toast. If you ask "does breakfast come with toast" you will get fry jacks.
The fry jacks are pretty heavy -not light and fluffy. The eggs were cooked perfectly :)
