Visited this place twice in July during my stay. What can i say? There is a reason people line up just to get in. The breakfast combos were awesome... The fruit and yogurts were amazing... The coffee was just right... The buggets were addictive... The staff were friendly and the prices were very reasonable. I would totally come back here.

Who would have ever thought that an AMAZING french bakery would be in Playa? Croissants to die for, amazing baguettes, and wonderful meals on a beautiful terrace while people watching the crowds on 5th.

We went there for breakfast and we just love the place. Butter should be their middle name. Croissants are the best we've ever had and everything else is very good.

Really nice place. You can't miss it, it's located on the Main Street in Playa (5th Avenida). Look for busy restaurant garden:) this place is popular. For a reason. Really good coffee, desserts and pastry. And I'm a big coffee and cake lover:) Good service. Highly recommended!

Turned up on sunday and the queue was massive - returned the next day slightly earlier and walked straight in. I had the 'healthy' breakfast which had fruit with yoghurt, with bread and honey which was very nice. Husband had the omelette which was a good size but slightly lacking in taste. If you choose one of their meal options... More

This has been one of our go to places for breakfast/mid afternoon snacks when in Playa since the first time we ate at Chez Celine in December/January of 2010/2011. The bakery is great and the service is always quick. The croissants are always fresh and delicious. We usually buy some the night before we leave to take with us to... More

The turkey came in a french baguette with mustard seed mustard and the lemonade was wonderful and refreshing. Staff... More
