Spoonaz Photo Cafe

Top choice cafe in Belize City

An oasis in downtown Belize City, this cosmopolitan cafe serves quality coffee as well as paninis and sandwiches. There is a smart air-conditioned lounge area inside, but you really want to be under the green cloth umbrellas out the back watching the sailboats bobbing on Haulover Creek and working your way through the cocktail list.

The menu includes local specialties such as rice 'n' beans and stewed chicken, and there's a popular BBQ on Saturdays with baby-back ribs, spicy, smoked chicken wings and chili nachos.
