Fabulous coffe shop

Fabulous coffee and pastries! Fresh pastry best in town! Everything here is good! Haven't tried breakfast just yet... It gets very busy on Sundays or during pick season...

Its just like being in France, you can smell the freshly daily baked bread... great spot to have some breakfast or a nice noon meal with friends. Its a spot in Playa del Carmen you Can't miss. I just Love the nice warm pain au chocolat from Chez Celine.... Delishhh

Have been going to Chez Celine for 3 years. Some of the food is excellent while other food completely misses the mark. Terrible, terrible quiche. Horrible "ratatouille omelet" (it's not ratatouille - it's just some veggies mixed in with the egg) Why don't they have french toast on the menu??? Maybe a thick sliced stuffed french toast - make it... More

Some friends and I decided on breakfast here one morning and it was a great decision! The omelette and potatoes I had were wonderful. The cappuccinos were great! The croissants were amazing! Had to grab second one for later! Would definitely visit again and recommend it to anyone visiting Playa Del Carmen soon.

Some mornings I would come alone as they opened for croissants, baguettes and the delicious freshly squeezed orange juice. We've been here for breakfast (great omelettes), lunch, dinner and for pastries too. The sandwiches are excellent, drinks always perfect and the soup (oooh the soup) was... More

No matter if you're looking for a quick snack, dessert or full breakfast/lunch you will not be disappointed at Chez Celine. Great choices, excellent atmosphere with indoor or outdoor seating, friendly and helpful staff. I'll be back!
