affordable, convenient for travellers heading to the cayes, well prepared food, friendly and helpful staff. Situated right along the north stann creek river, and in downtown Dangriga. Let the staff help you arrange a trip to the nearby cayes.

We came to the Riverside Cafe because we were told to find a boat captain there that would take us out to Tabacco Caye. It turned out to be very convenient - we waited about 40 minutes for a captain, and got some breakfast while...More
