I wanted to go there everyday!

Service, food, beverages were wonderful! Just be patient (or early), there is a waiting list, but is worth it.

Quite literally the best baked gluten and carb loaded items in Playa! If you are going to indulge do so here. I'm convinced they make their own butter. The croissants are buttery, flaky and warm in the morning and don't stop there their tarts are creative and delicious. My favorite is the lemon curd with a perfectly made crust. Bring... More

Stumbled upon this gem as it was nearby our hotel (Hotel Cacao). Ended up visiting here multiple times during our 5 day stay. Excellent food at a great value. Atmosphere was relaxing and service was fast. The Campesino breakfast was the perfect breakfast before heading out for tours and excursions. The French bread and jam is to die for!

I've been to France and the pastries at Chez Celine are comparable to those you would find in a boulangerie in Paris! The pan au chocolate had the perfect, flaky texture.

Where do I begin with this adorable cafe. First off- the prices are extremely reasonable for the amount of food they give you. Secondly- the staff could not be nicer. There was a tall gentleman with brown hair probably in his 30's. He said he was in Mexico for about two years. Anyway- I forgot his name but this guy... More

Food was very good and cheap but I feel like you guys need to work on your service. No one asked us how it was or anything just dropped off the food and we never heard from them again. Had to hail them down for the check.

We had brunch one morning at Chez Celine and it was delicious! Great food quality and ambiance was very nice. We both had the Croque Madame and it was perfect. The portion is very generous and the salad it comes with is fabulous.

Excellent place for good breakfast or dinner! The place is really nice and prices are reasonable compared to other places. The coffee, crepes and bakery products were delicious!
