Discover the newest place to buy fresh bread and pastries on the island of Cozumel
There is a new bakery in Cozumel called Maple Bakehouse, which in a very short time has become one of the best places on the island to purchase pastries and baked bread.
I went to meet Paola, the owner of Maple Bakehouse, to discover the secret to her success. Paola is a young mother from Cozumel and has been traveling here for 13 years. After her studies, she finally decided to come back here to live permanently on the island.
Paola, when did you start the adventure of Maple Bakehouse?
Last June. We are really happy to see that people love it as much as we do. From the beginning, we decided to give the best quality to our guests. Everything is homemade, even the jam. The coffee is fresh and organic, and we have a very good coffee machine to make lattes, cappuccinos, and espressos. There are no soda or industrial drinks in Maple, only fresh orange juice, smoothies, teas, and mineral water. We prepare the bread at 5 a.m. every morning in the main bakery which is on 65th Avenue. We give the balls of dough time to rise over three to five days, and our bread is made with fresh baker’s yeast only. We bake different kinds of bread like rye bread, multigrain with seeds, and whole wheat bread. We also have baguettes, ciabatta, pies, and baked goods. At 7:30 a.m. we are open and ready to receive our first guests with a fresh croissant, fresh bread and coffee.

Owner of Maple Bakehouse
Are you baking bread yourself?
Yes, I learned from a Canadian baker, which is why we call it Maple.
What about the menu?
We serve great poached eggs, fried eggs and omelets in any style you like. Sandwich, panini and crepes, with plenty of vegan and vegetarian food options. We serve food from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Maple Bakehouse is a five-minute walk from the ferry and is located on Calle 6, between Melgar and 5th Avenue, next to Hotel Flamingo. If you just want to buy bread, you can also go to the main bakery on the 65th Avenue and Calle 5.
