Merendero Tía Carmen (tel. 504/448-2606, 7 a.m.–8 p.m. daily) serves locally famed baleadas stuffed with various fixings, as well as tacos, simple meals, and fresh juices in a cafeteria a block south of the square. The first batch of baleadas usually sells out by 10:30 a.m. at the latest, but a second batch is made around 4:30 p.m.
Opposite Garífuna Tours next to the park, Tuty’s (tel. 504/448-0013, 7 a.m.–6 p.m. daily) serves decent licuados and juices, as well as an assortment of pastries, flan, breakfasts such as pancakes (US$2), and rotisserie chicken (US$2). Be prepared to wait; service can be slow.

At the southeast corner of the park, Espresso Americano has cappuccinos, granitas, and the standard selection of cookies and other pastries.
