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.

At Rock'n Java we love coffee - in fact, we searched far and wide for the best coffee we could find in Mexico and are the only providers of the organic coffee we serve here on the island, and we have the certificates t prove it! Please come back and enjoy another cup of Java with us soon! More

Rock 'n Java is a great place to eat in Cozumel. Hubby had breakfast, kids and I had burgers and Philly cheesesteak sandwich and it was all very tasty. We also had 4 corona and 2 Cokes and the bill was under $600 pesos - half of what we've been paying for meals elsewhere. This is an internet cafe with... More

You can't go wrong with Rock-n-Java! As a full time island resident for 15 years, it's been a solid and consistent mainstay for me and I haven't had a complaint that I can recall in all of those 15 years!

Our hotel was located closeby, so we ate here for a quick breakfast to use the wifi and plan our day. 2eggs with fruit, toast and hashbrowns for 60pesos.
