The owners and staff make you feel so welcome. My husband said the cinnamon rolls were amazing. (I'm GF so I couldn't try them.) Everything we had was delicious and prepared well. Their dog Layla was the sweetest thing and I want to go back...More

The couple running this establishment are the sweetest things. You can tell that they put their heart into it. Everything was delicious and went back again. The homemade baked goods are a must but you have to get there early before they run out!

Basic breakfast specials, amazing fresh juices but could use more servers/kitchen help. Went around 7-8am and the porch was about half full of people. It seemed that there was only one server. Other than that, great meal and loved the outdoor seating.

We enjoyed breakfast on the beach. Cinnamon rolls were amazing! As always, Belize is about the people you meet, and the owners here were great.

This is a great place for a home made breakfast or lunch. They are open early, usually by 6 or 6:30 and they close early, around 2. The food is prepared by Margaret, one of the owners and she is a good cook.

And definitely one of the best breakfasts we had on our entire trip to Belize! Delicious sandwiches and very sweet owners and staff! Try the french toast banana bread- best one we ever had!

This place was lovely. A nice little cozy breakfast place not far from our stay. The owners are this sweet Canadian couple who love to talk and we enjoyed everything they shared with us. The food was delicious and much better priced than the rest...More

We ate here twice. Once we had the breakfast burritos. The next time I had the banana bread French toast and a fruit bowl. Both times the food was excellent. The service was fast and friendly and the owners greeted everyone. Never ending good coffee....More
