Healthful is the key word. The extensive breakfast menu offers such delights as whole-wheat French toast and cheese blintzes. For lunch or dinner, consider the vegetarian tacos or lasagna, or choose from the selection of more than a dozen salads. To balance things out there are scrumptious pies, cakes, and pastries baked daily on the premises. Enjoy your healthy meal or sinful snack while sitting on the wrought-iron studio chairs and watching the waterfront out back.

We had dinner here on our last night in Cozumel. Fresh fish, big cocktails, fab home made desserts and awesome coffee! Well worth a visit.

We went here once for drinks and another time for dinner. Obviously you can't do much to mess up beer, but the food was really fantastic. Fresh, high quality, and healthy. My girlfriend had the fish and steamed vegetables and I had a tuna salad. The a/c was frosty and the view was great too. Both times we were greeted... More

Thank you for your kind comments! We only serve the best organically grown Mexican coffee we can find - so glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

Food was fabulous and healthy. I had chicken with steamed vegetables and my husband had the walnut pesto fish over linguini. Both were delicious. Also had a beautiful view of the sunset while we enjoyed our dinner.

Good food here. Service is good too. What this place is best for is when you want something other than mexican food or when you are with a group & some people want a burger or something. The Mexican dishes on the menu are pretty good too, but this place can satisfy a group with diverse appetites

I had the chef salad (large) which was enormous. Absolutely huge. I also had a hamburger on another visit. The food here is just amazing. I was hesitant to eat here because I like places that do not appear too touristy or trendy. Although it is on the tourist strip of Cozumel, it is really great. The desserts are excellent... More

Just got back from having one of the best salads in a long time. We found the menu really focused on their salad selection but that was fine with us. Nachos for an appetizer were enough for 2 for a meal!!! Regular sized salads were large with a great selection of fresh ingredients. A salad here is a full meal.... More

Think of it like a diner. Something for everyone, inexpensive, friendly and tasty. We have American family that live here year round and they are regulars. Beautiful view of the water. We parked at Mega grocery store, ate at Rock n' Java and shopped at Mega afterward. First visit, breakfast, was delicious. Second visit, lunch, was tasty. Guacamole and margaritas... More
