A Must Do in San Pedro: Brunch at Estel’s

There are a few places that I recommend to EVERYONE that visits Ambergris Caye. You need to snorkel at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley.  Have a beer or two at the Palapa Bar.  And you must have breakfast at least once at Estel’s Dine By the Sea. You’ll find it right on the beach in the center of town just south of the Central Park.

The floor is sand, both inside and out, and when I was there last week, some live music was playing.  Nice touch.  The inside is decorated with all sorts of crazy local knick knacks.

There are no menus at the table…head inside to check out the chalk board.  I’d hate to be the one who is in charge of fixing this when someone accidentally brushes up against it.

I always stick to the same section…to make your own egg breakfast.  Eggs, meat, option, option…

The flour tortillas is divine…but so are the fry jacks (the tortilla dough fried until it’s a savoury donut).

Mmmmm…

Here is Cesar…one happy customer with his cheese burger and fries.

Owned by a local family and open EARLY…6am, definitely try Estel’s restaurant.  They serve breakfast all day (well…until 5pm).   You will like it…I promise.

  • Really tasty looking breakfast. I assume that when I see $15 that is BZ so…what $7USD?

      Yep. $1USD = $2Bzd.

  • We were there in March and ate at Estel’s our 1st morning. The food was delish and those fry jacks…yum. Only way they could have been better was if they had a bit of powdered sugar on them. Shout out to our server Shanti who we ran into at the Palapa Bar a few days later, a nice guy w/ some good jokes. 🙂

    Shanti helped us too. Good guy. I’ll say hi to him for you!

    My favorite place on the island for breakfast any day except Tuesday (they’re closed) and especially on weekends when Charles fires up his grills and cooks up some amazing BBQ. During the winter months on weekends you get to hear Russell Hulme sing and sometimes even Charlie joins in! They were also staying open for dinner on Thu – Sat nights till 7PM when I was there. If you’re going to Ambergris Caye stop by Estell’s. Best view and breakfast on the island!
