In our 5 years as full time residents... Sweet thing has been a regular pleasure. The food is consistent and always awesome. Two things that are difficult to find in small Mexican towns. When it's busy you do wait for your food.... Because it's a small kitchen.... But the food is worth the wait.! ☕️

The location leaves a lot to be desired when you have all the other ocean front restaurants around. The food is great even though the service is slow.

Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant through Trip Advisor. We are working hard to be one of the very best restaurants in our area, and know that with the team we have, we will achieve that goal. Every day, our focus at this time is on speed of service, and I know that we have come a long way, though we still have a long way to go. So thank you for that honest review and I hope to see you return soon. The very best, always...John

We are locals and it was our first visit to Sweet Things. We heard they had awesome cinnamon rolls and we were not disappointed! The hot breakfast was also very good. The hash browns stole the show for us though! Would go back just for that. The prices are very reasonable and the environment is friendly and homely! We will be regulars if they keep up the quality and service that we just experienced.

Thank Wayne P

Just wanted to thank you for your kind comments and support as we transition ownership at this location. Still the same great team in place, with a new boss who is just getting his feet wet. Staff and Sandra doing a great job training me though. All the best...John

The restaurant is now under new ownership. The food is delicious, you can't beat the bakery items. I have also had the salads for lunch. More than I can eat. It's great home cooked food. Do not miss this.

We've been visiting Sweet Things since it opened, and have always appreciated the good food and good service. I especially appreciate the gluten free baked goods! Fantastic. John, the new owner, is very friendly and open to all suggestions. The only thing to know is the service is a bit slow- we don't mind because we're in paradise, but if you're in a hurry keep that in mind. Congrats to you John!
