Sucré Salé is a family-owned cafe that is known best for its pastries. The owner is a French pastry chef. Before they had the cafe they were selling the pastries out of their home. I used to buy pastries from them all the time. They were so busy that they had to open a cafe so they could keep all the pastry degenerates out of their house.
Sucré Salé has a very comfortable seating area inside with great wifi and frosty air conditioning. They also have a few tables outside that provide a nice viewing area for people watching.
Their customer service is exceptional. They are always giving 100% to make sure you are satisfied. They have nice coffee and breakfast and lunch options.
They are located downtown just a few blocks away from the ferry found on 2 between 5 Av and 10 Av.
They are open 8am to 10pm Monday – Saturday and 8-1 on Sunday.

COZ Coffee Roasting Company
Coz Coffee is a good place to absorb the energy of Cozumel in the city center.
They have coffee down to a science! Their coffees come from Vera Cruz, Chiapas, and Oaxaca. They roast their beans in-house — about 15 Kgs per week to make sure that the beans stay fresh and you get the most out of every sip.
Their specific way of roasting beans is known as the coffee curve. This is to make sure that the temperature of the roast is exactly where it’s supposed to be so that the flavor is well balanced.
Every cup of coffee ordered is weighed out on a digital scale, so that each coffee will deliver the satisfaction you are looking for.
They are located just a few steps to the north of the square, on 5 Next door to Dick’s Dive Bar. Enjoy.
Maple Bakehouse Cafe is a bustling downtown cafe where you can enjoy delicious coffee and creative baked goods only a block away from the ocean. Their coffee comes from Chiapas and Vera Cruz, and also has a little “secret sauce”. I have no idea what that means but it’s pretty tasty.
When you get into Maple Bakehouse there is a wall of baked goods. They aren’t labeled so you’ll have to ask for help finding the right thing, but once you get it you won’t be sorry.
Sit back, relax, and feel the island vibes. Enjoy your coffee with a maple bakehouse fresh croissant. They start baking their pastries each morning at 2 am, so you are definitely going to experience the freshness of each pastry. Maple bakehouse also serves breakfast all day. What really stands out are their croissant options.
To really feel the island you can come and attend their live music Thursday -Saturday from 8 pm to 10-pm.
