Due to the damage caused by Hurricane Wilma, the following description may no longer be accurate. Please consider this when making your travel plans. Enjoy great Mexican and Canadian breakfasts here that include omelets, pancakes and home fries. For lunch there are fresh salads, delicious sandwiches on freshly baked bread, lasagna, hamburgers and other specialities. The cafe, located just south of San Miguel has a laid-back atmosphere and a great view of Cozumel's eastern shore. Those who would like to snorkel can check out Papa Hog's Scuba Emporium just across the street or Mama Hog's Scuba Boutique just next door.
We bought a dive package at the start of our trip, only to be told later we couldn't use all of our dives without buying more. Also, do not use a credit card because you will find additional charges you didn't sign for charged to your card. Forget about calling the 800# on the website to dispute, because you will only be told to call the international #. There are plenty of reputable dive shops, Papa Hogs just isn't one of them!
Papa Hogs, across the street from the Hogtown Cafe, is owned, oddly enough, by Papa and Mama Hog. They opened up the Hogtown Cafe across the street from their scuba diving establishment (also a great thing if you don't like going on scuba trips with 30 complete strangers) and we love going across the street for a quick lunch and cerveza after a day of diving.
It's not fancy and certainly not stuffy. The open air patio and bar overlooks the ocean and American rock music is usually coming across the speakers. Sand on the floor? check - divers in wet suits? check - Great fun with a nice group of staff? check!
Nachos, burgers, chips and salsa and guacamole are the types of food choices, but they have a good selection of other stuff too. Oh, they also have a full bar and a fairly large selection of beers.
Its right on the main road going along the west side of the island, Cafe on one side Scuba shop on the other - its kinda easy to miss if you are admiring the beach so be sure and pay attention. If you do a Yahoo search, you will easily find their website with pictures and more info.
I have been the past several years, and am returning next month for another visit - we don't go to the island without spending time with the Hog Family.
