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.

Great little mom and pop shop. Came her for breakfast on our last day. Food was delicious. Owners were around talking to everyone. They were out of a certain food item and they were very accommodating with replacing it. Amazing waffles and cinnamon rolls.
