The best, and really only, grocery store in West End is Woody’s (tel. 504/445-4269, 7 a.m.–6 p.m. Sun.–Thurs., 6 a.m.–8:30 p.m. Fri., and 7 a.m.–5 p.m. Sat.), with a decent selection of packaged goods and the occasional, slightly limp-looking vegetable.
Eldon’s in French Harbour and Coxen Hole are far superior grocery stores, and a Megafoods is opening in the island’s new mall. Plaza Mar, on a hill above Coxen Hill (turn up off the main Roatán road by the Bojangles), is another decent grocery store, with an Internet café as well.
The Coconut Tree Store (tel. 504/403-8782, 7 a.m.–9:30 p.m. daily), at the entrance to town, has a good selection of packaged food and supplies. You can find fresh produce sold from pickup trucks parked throughout West End every day except Sunday.
