Sunday Brunch

Places with great views and great food

Cozumeleños have embraced Sunday brunch as a time when they can linger with family over a protracted morning meal. Cruise ships are usually not docked on Sunday, so things are often a bit more calm and slow.

Our choices have areas where you can sit near the water and enjoy the view, egg stations, tropical fruit, and panes dulces. They also have local favorites that change from week to week but which usually include cochinita pibil, mondongo, and salbutes. There's usually a chicken dish.

Check the Local Cuisine page or use the search box for definitions of unfamiliar terms.

Locate restaurants on a map on the Restaurants page or on our detailed external map.

Some of our personal favorites include:

Restaurant Details
El Cid La Ceiba
A: Carretera Costera Sur Km 4.5
  Beautiful palapa overlooking the sea. Very good egg station. Waffles made to order. Nice cochinita. Good bacon & sausage. Hot chocolate on the buffet. Terrible orange juice (watered down, artificial-tasting). Parking is surprisingly scarce.
A: Melgar near Calle 11, across from Mega
P: 878 46 47
  They have lots of fresh fruit and juice, eggs cooked to order, and 6-8 local specialties such as cochinita pibil, salbutes, tamales, etc. Orange juice is fantastic. Hot chocolate by order. No bacon or sausage. Oddly, you can only get waffles by ordering from the waiter (but they're included with the buffet). Excellent view from the waterfront patio. Popular with locals. Lots of parking on the street or (covered) across the street at Mega.
