Pops, open between 6:30 am and 3:00pm has been a breakfast lover’s paradise for the better part of the last two decades. The menu here can’t be described as anything other than perfect, not only the composition but the execution; Pops serves Waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausage, fruit, oats, burritos, all breakfast themed with the freshest ingredients and a precise attention to detail. The combination of American style breakfasts made with Belizean flair is always done expertly and having your meal delivered to you by Pops himself (for whom the restaurant has its name) is a real treat in the morning, or afternoon because they serve breakfast all day. One cannot say “we stayed in San Ignacio” without having made a stop at Pops for fry jacks and beans.
