We went out looking for crepes and stumbled upon Friends. Wonderful food but the tropical pancakes were to die for. 3 pancakes topped with cinnamon bananas a pineapple ring with whipped cream. We left with very full tummies.

Ate here for breakfast. A great little open air restaurant by the pier in Placencia Village. Cash only. Very tasty and filling food. Proprietor, staff and resident restaurant pup were all great. Best visited when you are not in a hurry.
