Thank you Chez Celine for making our trip to Playa so amazing. We started each day with amazing bread and pastries. The place is extremely busy and the staff polite despite being overworked. Amazing baguettes and sandwhiches and pastries and and and. Best breakfast spot you can find.

Having been there now at least 15 times including New Year's Eve, the excellent quality and price-performance ratio remain the same, despite a few minor hiccups which immediately were resolved upon request. They even took the efforts to go and get our favorite bottle of wine within 15min, which they had run out of. Most of our visits include a... More

Found this awesome place thanks to Yelpers down here in Playa. This place at the beginning area of fifth avenue is not very hard to find. When going inside you can smell the delicious bread and goodies behind the counter. The young man who helped me spoke perfect English and was very friendly. I ordered a chocolate almond croissant and... More

Let me just say that I’ve sampled the most delectable and amazing pastries in both Paris and Montreal. I know what real artisanal butter should taste like. Chez Celine makes an authentic pain au chocolat with real imported butter. I bought one of their famous croissants the other day during a stroll on Quinta Avenida. When I closed my eyes,... More

Stayed right next door and came for coffee and croissant daily before hitting the beach. If your seated the service can be a little slow, but the to-go at the counter was very quick. Everything here is fresh baked and amazing. Definitely recommend for breakfast and afternoon snacks!

If you want a different breakfast in Mexiko just come here. They make fabulous crepes and have good bread or other French desserts and sweets. It has a nice garden. I ate here several times during my holidays

Chocolate croissants are to die for!!!! Actually, the almond chocolate croissants are to die for as well!!! We stayed on the north end of 5th Avenue, so we were right next to Chez Celine. We walked over there for breakfast one rainy morning. We ordered the ham & cheese, tuna and chocolate croissant. I think our waitress accidentally brought over... More

My family went here because of the enormous amount of people seated and eating. We found out it was for a good reason. We ordered a Brie on a baguette, and it was to die for. The bread was homemade and warm, and my sister's meal came with a warm and cold drink, hot chocolate and orange juice. The prices... More
