You may be familiar with the common phrase that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well, when you are vacationing, having that very first bite of the day also needs to be at a good and comfortable place to start the day right. When spending your vacation on Ambergris Caye the options are endless and if we look at the different eateries by the beach there are a bunch of popular spots in the downtown area. One of these food heavens by the beach is the recently awarded Lily’s Treasure Chest restaurant serving breakfast every day until noon. 

As its name suggests, it’s a treasure trove, not containing silver or gold, but some of the best breakfast dishes in downtown Ambergris Caye. Lily’s Treasure sits on the ground floor of a two-story beach building facing the Caribbean Sea. It has indoor and an outdoor seating area with plenty of space to accommodate large groups. Seating by the beach is possible adding a more tropical experience to your breakfast. The stunning view of the sea and the surrounding palm trees, makes the restaurant a picturesque place for that morning grub.  

The popular breakfast choices 

Start your morning with that punch of protein and energy to help you carry on your demanding activities throughout the day. Many of the favourite breakfast dishes at Lily’s come with great ‘egg’specations. Try their famous ‘Two Eggs any Style,’ and the different choices of omelets. There is something for everyone and depending on special dietary restrictions. There is the vegetarian, ham and cheese, meat lovers, seafood, and cheese steak omelette. All of these come with your choice of whole wheat toast, tortilla, the traditional fry jack or breakfast potatoes. Are you hungry yet? In addition, the typical Belizean breakfast, Huevos Rancheros and breakfast burrito are another combo to choose from.
