Chill Coffee Cafe for Creatives in Cozumel?
September 13, 2019 9:23 AM   Subscribe

Third cruise visit to Cozumel coming up. This time the focus is maximum chill and room for creative productivity, (as opposed to adventure, shopping, sightseeing...) Help us find a cafe with the food, the coffee, and the atmosphere to just be who we be, but in Cozumel. Requirements after the break.

My wife and I need a break and want some space to collab on a creative writing project. She found a deal on a cruise, so we're going to Cozumel. For us there are "Do" vacations, "See" vacations, and "Be" vacations. This is pretty much a "Be" vacation.

(To pre-answer the question "why a cruise if you're going to want to write?" I say that we like cruises because we don't have to think about anything. We can just "Be." We can find a spot to chill on the ship and only emerge when we want. Our ship chill plan is covered. We just need to find a spot in port.)

When we get into port we'd like to find a spot that offers:
Chill atmosphere
Room to whip out notebook/laptop to write
Good coffee
Good food (or good food nearby)
Decent mobile reception
Access to a return taxi

And it'd be nice if the place:
Was an independent, locally owned business
Was in an interesting area in case we need to stretch our legs
Had relatively safe internet
Is a hangout for local creatives and not so much for touristas (yeah, like us)

We plan to pay (and tip well) for the above. We don't want to occupy a table for most of a day without making it worth the establishment's while.

But we need to find such an establishment. Can you help?

I spent a lot of time at Money Bar. The dining area is a huge open palapa, great for really hot days. Good food, decent coffee, good wifi plus great ocean views. It can get crowded in season, especially around dinnertime.

I also really like COZ and Pachamama for the cozy cafe vibe. Better than Money Bar if its raining or chilly.

An anglo scuba diver thread recommended COZ Coffee Roasting Company for drip/fancy and El Coffee on Calle 3 S just off Melgar for espresso, for what that's worth.
