The Best American Breakfast In San Pedro

blue-parrot-san-pedroIn those few blissful moments right before sleep last night, I suddenly had an intense craving for breakfast. I couldn’t wait for tomorrow to come. But since I wasn’t particularly hungry, I didn’t understand why.

Today I realize that this wasn’t mere hunger pangs but rather a premonition of the future. A future filled with hash browns, biscuits, gravy and eggs, an incredible American style breakfast in the heart of San Pedro, Guatemala.

This breakfast is at Blue Parrot’s Bar & Grill.

The chefs are American and professional, the food is authentic, the atmosphere is quiet and cozy, the prices are right, and you can get you’re breakfast fix all day long.
