Glenda's is open M-F. Fluffy omelettes, oversized cup of coffee, and cinnamon roll for US$5. Cute and off the beaten path. Service could be a bit more attentive - was not offered coffee refill, or asked if I needed anything.

Had the onion cheese and tomatoe omlett and it was good, but Could use a bit more food on the plate. Wont go back as there are other places... More

We went to Glenda's this morning with our baby. My husband had the omelette meal with cinnamon bun and coffee and I had the breakfast sandwich and a cinnamon bun and coffee and then we shared a third cinnamon bun. All this food cost about 22 Belizean dollars, which on this island is a good deal. The meal arrived in... More

Glenda's is fantastic! Visited yesterday (Oct 27th). Get there early because she sells out of her amazing homemade cinnamon rolls and cheese rolls pretty quickly! I was there at 7:30am, and a very friendly local was in line in front of me (there was a long line already at that hour) and she said Glenda sometimes sells out by 8am.... More

Cinnamon rolls great as always. This was the first time I had beans at breakfast. Not your typical rice and beans but a bowl of pinto beans with scrambled eggs. The best seasoned beans ever. If your looking for ambiance this is not your place. However, if you are looking for real Belize food from real Bekizians you are at... More

Cinnamon buns were good. Coffee was fine. However the eggs were disappointing. However we've yet to have decent eggs anywhere in Belize!

My and sister had breakfast here one morning. I can understand the mixed reviews but that's why we liked the place. The food and coffee were good, maybe an off day for the cinnamon rolls (hard and no flavor) probably how they would turn out if I was baking. We liked the atmosphere and shared a table with another family... More

We have been in Caye Caulker for 12 days. The cinnamon rolls are excellent and don't forget to try the cheese rolls (yum) My husband loves the omelets and I love everything that I have tried. Don't get in a hurry and enjoy the coffee.

This small restaurant as limited hours, but it is worth eating here. For breakfast make sure to get at least one of their homemade cinnamon rolls. The rest of their breakfast menu is very good and the prices are very good.

The reviews are right- get there early and don't expect icing. These are about 75cents which is great for a fresh cinnamon roll. I was maybe expecting too much with all these rave reviews. They were good but not worth all the hype. The price was great though! 👍🏻
