Ruby's CafeHidden Treasure, First Edition

When you visit new places, you probably want to experience the country “like the locals. And now you can. Best-Kept Secrets is a new blog that highlights the lesser-known, must-visit attractions in the Latin American region.

Even with the best guidebooks, new visitors to a country can often miss out on the small, local attractions that have so much to offer.

This series will be your treasure map, and we’ll always be sure to mark the top spots. One such location is Ruby’s Café, a true Best-Kept Secret on Ambergris Caye.

If you are an early bird, then you need to know about this when you visit Belize. Ruby's café is open from either 4:30am or 4:45am every morning, including Sundays and holidays, and they even have a generator in case there is a power outage. For coffee "must-havers," Ruby’s is the place to visit.

Ruby's MenuPair your coffee with a delicious, local treat. "Johnny Cakes" are a real specialty of the house. Ruby’s serves them with chicken and basically it's a biscuit (almost) with goodies tucked inside.

The other Belizean treat they serve is a "Fry Jack," which is, as close as I can describe, a funnel cake that is triangular in shape. They are best eaten with mango or guava jam.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this first edition of Hidden Treasure, and be sure to stay tuned for more uncovered secrets to enhance your travel experience.

With a strong focus on consumer need, Mr. Cobb accurately predicted the growing demand for high quality, residential product for North American "baby boomer" retirees in the region. He led the group into real estate development and created a holding company called ECI Development for several properties, including a resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize. Michael speaks at dozens of international conferences annually about offshore real estate finance, development, and ownership. He was a consultant to The Oxford Club, hosted a weekly radio program, contributes regularly to overseas publications, sits on the board of several international companies, gives counsel to various real estate projects throughout Central America, and serves on the Board of Directors and the President’s Advisory Group for the National Association of Realtors, NAR.
