Though this is a bakery, they also do some great ‘main course’ breakfasts that are a bit more substantial than a croissant (no offense to the French).
The menu has a European side, with omelettes and cold cut dishes, but be sure to flip it over to check out the Dominican options on the other side. I definitely missed the flip-side of the menu for at least my first three times there. Don’t make my mistake!
What I love about Belgian Bakery is that I can order a sensible omelette, then snack on a pastry while I wait.
Where? It’s a quick moto ride into town from eXtreme, just past the traffic lights. (There’s only one set in town!)
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 7am – 6pm; Sundays 7am – 5pm.
Go forth and find your breakfast
I hope that gave you some ideas for where to fuel up for your active day or, as we call it, just another day in Cabarete.
Shout out as always to the local comedors, most of which do a stomping traditional local breakfast. Load up a plate with eggs, sausage, fried cheese, plantain and sometimes yuca for a very small price tag.
Empanadas are also a popular local breakfast option. Look out for stands on the street selling these delicious fried pouches of goodness. Your adventure vacation is not complete without some street empanadas.

Otherwise, stay healthy and enjoy breakfast in Cabarete!
