Breakfast (6:30-9 AM)

serving breakfast Start your day with a taste adventure ... Our menu includes all of the typical fare you would expect, plus local Belizean favorites like fry jacks, flour or corn tortillas, burritos and huevos rancheros. These dishes are accompanied by refried beans, plantains and tasty greens with names like callaloo and chaya. Hint: Try a stuffed fry jack - this is flour tortilla dough, deep-fried in coconut oil and stuffed with your choice ingredients. My favorite stuffing is cheddar, cheese, onions, chaya and scrambled egg.

Canopy Bar

Welcome to duPlooy's

Canopy Bar

Friendly, engaging bar server Our Canopy Bar comes complete with friendly, engaging bar servers. We offer everything from non-alcoholic smoothies and fruit juices to Belizean rum and beer. The typical range of alcohol for your choice of plain or exotic drinks, plus a selection of red & white dinner wines are also available.

Try a fruit juice that you may have not tasted before, such as sorrel or carambola. Sorrel juice is made from a red hibiscus and goes very well with vodka - much like cranberry juice. Carambola is commonly known as star fruit and has a unique taste. Good in smoothies with other fruits. Oh, yes - don't forget to ask for your complimentary tropical fruit punch. Add local rum if you prefer.
