Friends is right on the sidewalk near where I stayed in Placencia. It made for a quick stop and they have good coffee. I also got my laundry done here, and it was cheap and fast.

This is a great place for homemade breakfast. The owners are up early making fresh homemade whole wheat bread and banana bread (which you can buy a loaf of) and muffins. The also use the banana bread for a specialty french toast. Very friendly staff (the owner) and if you are interested, the place is for sale.

Great breakfasts, atmosphere, owners! Managed to score on their cinnamon rolls which is hard to do. Home made breads are another treat.

I've enjoyed breakfast twice this trip. First, it was the lobster omelette. Then the full eggs, sausage and home fries. The omelette was OK, just somewhat dry. It seemed to contain head meat rather than the much tastier and more expensive tail portion. As far as the "regular" breakfast, that's the better choice. Make sure to order the whole wheat... More

This small, cute cafe is built for the expats and tourists in mind. Very good breakfast meats and baked goods. Coffee is always on and is of good quality. Very welcoming experience for all.

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 :)

It's just a few steps off the pier and next to the sidewalk which is home to more restaurants , gift shops , artsy places and... More
