“Doesn't get better than this!”
Reviewed February 15, 2011

Best spot in the West End for conversation,coffee and cuisine;-)
(Couldn't resist;-)) Seriously though, Michelle brews up excellent barista favs using the West End's only authentic espresso machine,brewing local beans freshly ground every morning. All I can say is yum!!!! Whether it's a latte in the morning or an icy cold mocha on a beautiful warm afternoon the Wet Spot is the best (spot;-)) The food is fresh and cooked à la minute~delish! Also, amazingly well priced. The location is a prime West End location with one of the area's best dive shops (Reef Gliders) attached. Great place for coffee,cooking,conversation, relaxing and later in the evening a mean game of Texas Hold 'em.
I have a group of Wet Spot pics on flickr (lockedhalo)

“Good price, Great food and a beautiful spot”
Reviewed January 26, 2011

I have lived on the island for a year and a half. This has become my favorite restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The coffee is great and the pancakes will change your life! Dinner is only served on the weekends and Monday I think but the meals are incredible; filet mignon with salad and potatoes for $8.50 or shrimp pasta for $5. Check it out!

“Real coffee from a barista, cold beers, cheap eats and fun!”
Reviewed May 5, 2010

This is a fun and friendly place to hang out and have some local staple foods with a cold Honduran beer or some of the world's best coffee . Michelle (owner/bartender) makes incomparable coffee, any way you want it.

Try the Baleadas there. You haven't been in Honduras until you've had a Baleada.

This is the perfect location for a cerveza - sunser combo!

The Wet Spot is adjacent to the Reef Gliders dive shop in West End.
