Where To Eat In San Ignacio For Vegans and Vegetarians: Review of Guava Limb Cafe, San Ignacio, Belize and more!

In December 2017, right after Christmas my husband and I were in San Ignacio, Belize. We read about the Chaa Creek-owned restaurant Guava Limb and so glad we tried it out! The restaurant is incredibly charming! It’s a house that’s been converted into a restaurant with inviting blue and green hues. There’s indoor as well as covered outdoor seating, upstairs and downstairs. We sat upstairs overlooking the park which you really can’t see as there’s a long tree barrier. We paid by credit card and we found the pricing comparable to our hotel the San Ignacio Resort on the Hill.

The staff was very friendly and we were elated that the restaurant was so vegetarian and vegan-friendly offering a variety of dishes from Greek salad and pizza to burritos, soups and more. We were there at the end of December, right before new year which is supposed to be peak season, but apart from a handful of other tables, it was empty.That didn’t deter us though. The staff was welcoming and friendly and the menu had several items we could eat in addition to the menu itself being so cute!

Guava Limb is Farm-to-Table

They offer several vegan, vegetarian and gluten free appetizers, entrees, and deserts.
The restaurant is owned by the luxurious Chaa Creek Resort in San Ignacio. We ordered the vegetarian wontons and they were delicious.


Eggless and gluten free desserts are available at Guava Limb Cafe.


  • The restaurant is farm-to-table
  • Their default is to provide filtered water selling it.
  • Homemade pastries from Chaa Creek Bakery
  • Veg-friendly – wontons, pasta, pizza, salad, falafel
  • The table settings were cute with blue cloth coasters.

{How To Get to Guava Limb Cafe}

To get there just walk down the main street in San Ignacio, Burns Avenue. San Ignacio is a small city and you can’t miss Burns Street as it’s lined with restaurants, bars and shops aimed at tourists. Guava Limb Cafe is all the way at the end, which is nice as you’re away from the hustle and bustle.

We really enjoyed our meal at Guava Limb Cafe. I’d recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting San Ignacio – regardless of dietary restrictions. Other places we liked in San Ignacio were Ko-Ox Han-Nah, The San Ignacio Resort on the Hill, and Tandoor Restaurant and Bar.
