great vegan options! - Edit

Small restaurant with an open air terrace on the second floor. If they are open there is a sandwich board out front. The pin on the map is wrong -- it's across the intersection from the main restaurant block. The day we visited there were three burger options (2 of them vegan) and three wrap options (2 vegan). And a huge list of smoothies.

Pleasant atmosphere and service and delicious food. Our two burgers and two smoothies were about $20USD before tip.

We would definitely return!

Pros: delicious, proudly advertising vegan options

Cons: a little hard to find the first time.

Great little veggie lunch spot - Edit

Little place but pretty easy to find on the main restaurant strip a few blocks from the market. Map is a bit off here. Look for the sandwich board out front - if it is there they are open. They have been reducing hours to 10-3 since not busy. We tried Saturday to Wednesday and were open just Tues and Wed. Had 3 types of wraps and 3 types of burgers. Everything we had was good. Place is all veggie!

Pros: all veggie

Cons: not open often

Tasty! - Edit

Being a gastric bypass patient I asked for a smaller wrap and a few alternations of a wrap. They did, packed half the wrap to take along and I must say; it was delicious!
Friendly people, wonderful, healthy food with lots of vegan options.

Pros: Excellent food, Very helpful with alternations, Very clean

Cons: Next to a loud road, Not easy to find openinghours, Little pricy

Love it - Edit

Went here today and it truly was a breath of fresh air. Loved the fresh juices, the special falafel wrap, standard wrap and the standard black bean burger. The burger was excellent actually. It was a shame that the female waitress was in such a foul mood, put a negative spin on the experience. Chef was lovely though. Would definitely go back. Two juices, burger and one wrap cost $35 belize.

Pros: vegan options, variety, fresh

Cons: price , staff attitude

A healthy respite - Edit

Most places to eat in Belize, vegans will have to ask for dishes to be modified. And, except at fancier expat/tourist places, that food will be mostly rice, beans and fried things. So, it's a truly lovely break to visit Roots Wraps and Smoothies which is all vegetarian and mostly vegan, and the staff care about supporting plant-based healthy lifestyles. I do think it's mostly tourists who come here but it's very casual and relaxed.

I had a bit of trouble finding it so here are some tips. It's near the center of town, at a complicated 6ish-way intersection with a traffic director often standing in the center waving cars on. The most obvious building at the intersection is a hardware store "COURTS" which is painted yellow with blue and red on the sign. Roots Wraps and Smoothies is a white and green sign on the second floor above a convenience store type place.

There is room for ~6 inside and ~15 outside overlooking this busy street, enjoying smoothies, juices, salads, wraps and burgers. Although they open early in the morning, there's no breakfast menu; it's the same all day. The owner did tell us there would be seasonal variations in the menu as they use local produce. It's largely western food with Belizean ingredients.

It is so great to see people sharing plant-based and eco-friendly principles in a place where most people are not considering their impact. The only thing I can think of that would make Roots Wraps and Smoothies even better would be to feature more of the local cuisine highlights on the menu.

Pros: Refreshingly healthy, Reasonable prices

Great food! - Edit

Happy Cow - first San Ignacio does not pop up in the search bar. Please correct, as I found this restaurant on tripadvisor, not here and I only found this post on google.

I went through the trouble of googling because I really want to recommend this place! The owner is a really nice guy and the food is fantastic. I enjoyed their smoothies as well. A gem in this small tourist town.

“It's so good, Belize it!” - Edit

My husband and I were told about this wonderful vegan, vegetarian, smoothie place while shopping in the San Ignacio market for fruit. It was a godsend to us! In just under 24 hours of our arrival we found a place we could call home, that speaks to our lifestyle with not only great tasting healthy food, but service from the heart. We filled up on more than just the pina colada smoothies and beefless burgers, we feasted on the wonderful energy that came from the owner and chef, Jamaul. His staff are warm, friendly and efficient.
Come for the food but don't be surprised if you stay for the great energy. We will be back!

Pros: Inexpensive, Made to order, Great staff

Cons: Small location, Hard to locate, Popular items sell out quickly
