This is one of those places that opened for a short time, closed, and recently reopened. This is typical for new businesses in Cozumel where obtaining all of the necessary permits takes longer than expected -- as happened in this case.
I was walking by end of last week and friends shouted me in. I'm probably the last to know about it! I liked it very much and think you should know about it, too.
I'm not certain how to categorize this little place but it's really pleasant and comfortable & the owners keep long hours. It's a "cantina" that offers drinks & very nice, free botanas as well as a "loncheria" that serves inexpensive meals. Indoor or outdoor dining at your option -- the garden space has some very pleasant surprises. Clean & welcoming with nice music that's not too loud.
Conveniently located in an old wooden house (where Coffelia used to be -- for those who remember it) on Calle 5 Sur between Melgar & Ave. 5 -- closer to Ave. 5 than Melgar. Opens at 12-1pm; Closes 11pm-12am.
