BLT with potatoes hit the spot. Freshly squeezed Orange juice is just what the doctor ordered. Best breakfast spot I've ever been to.

This young Frenchman has hit it out of the park! Lovely cafe. Delicious handmade french pastries! You must try the breakfast here. Expect a short wait because this is a place that has been discovered! Every time I'm in Playa I come here. It's located on the north end of 5th avenue. It's very delicious!

Good food at inexpensive price. You have to wait a little to get a seat, or you can order the pastries and coffee to go. Ate the spinach omelette with goat cheese, with pain du chocolat and a croissant. The pain du chocolat was delicious!

We ate several breakfasts and a light dinner here. All of our meals were delicious and surprisingly inexpensive compared to other restaurants on 5th Ave in playa. I have never really liked French restaurants but I really enjoyed every dish that I had especially the crepa mushroom, ratatouille omelet, the croissants (regular and chocolate) and the coffee (americano). It's true... More

went here every single day for a slice of heaven each morning. Delicious bakery with wonderful pastries, courteous staff, all spoke very good English, reasonable prices, plenty of items to choose from. I recommend going before 9:00 as it gets very crowded. They have outdoor seating as well as indoor seating where you can go and watch the staff preparing... More

This is absolutely a must-try. I am the biggest fan of almond croissants, and I can honestly say theirs is the best I have ever had. And their Cafe mocha is incredible. We aren't really even breakfast people, and we went multiple times because they were so amazing! If you are in PDC, eat here.
