We had breakfast there 3 of the 7 days we were in Placencia. I always got the American and my wife the fruit bowl. Both were great! The smoothies were really good and fresh too!

Amazing vegan and vegetarian options and wonderful smoothies! Just check when it is open! This was closed for dinner on a number of days we were there so we ended up going for lunch.

We went there on our last day and the breakfast was too good. We enjoyed the meal and the server was fast and quick. The price was also reasonable. Maybe the best breakfast we had at Placencia.

My wife and I are here 4 times during our stay as they have excellent vegan options and wonderful smoothies. The atmosphere of the pier is also ideal. My only wish is that it was open for dinner!
