Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Many visitors and expats enjoy this café's Rastafarian vibe. It's a laid-back (read: service can sometimes seem to be in slow motion) spot for a beer and a bite to eat. Runnins is a Rasta word for happenings, and Bakut is a local tree with pink flowers and long seed pods with edible but smelly seeds—the tree is locally known as Stinking Toe. Local seafood is a specialty here. Try the conch curry or snapper cooked in a banana leaf, or the curried chicken wrap on roti bread. For vegetarians the Mediterranean plate with hummus and babaganoosh is a good choice. Check out the bar, which was made from a large rosewood tree that was felled by Hurricane Iris in 2001, and have a lime daiquiri made from Belizean rum and local organic limes. There's live music some nights. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Wednesday–Sunday.
