Friends is the cutest cafe, located 5 seconds from the ocean on the Placencia sidewalk. The owners are such lovely, welcoming and warm people. The food is delicious, local and plentiful. The laundry service is also so convenient and quick! I can't say enough good things about these peeps :)

We decided to come here after reading up on TA the reviews and they did not steer us wrong. We parked and had a short walk to this restaurant right on the waters edge. Everything looked yummy, and we ordered the fruit plate, pancakes, etc. The owners were straight up friendlies, and wanted everyone to be happy with the food.... More

Marge and Rob, the owners, are great people and serve delicious food. The breakfast menu is out of this world. You would think you were ordering from an IHOP menu. Only open for breakfast and lunch during the off season. Stop by, you will be glad you did.

Found them on Facebook, advertising lobster breakfast burritos! Ended up going twice, service is a bit slow, but the food makes up for it. Homemade cinnamon rolls are available some days.

We have six children and our breakfast cost around $50 (US). Food was delicious, fresh, and portions were large. The fresh whole wheat bread was so delicious.

Super friendly staff and owners with delicious and affordable breakfast. On Wednesdays and Fridays--homemade cinnamon buns--to die for! Great location. We ate there every morning--including before diving since it's right at the end of the pier.

This is the place to stop for breakfast. Presentation was great and the food tasted even better. After we found this place, we ate breakfast there almost every day. The best place for breakfast in Placencia.
