Your best choice for breakfast

The bread is done the right way and from scratch. Truly recomendable for breakfast. The Croque-madam is my favorite.

The pain au chocolat is the best in playa del carmen. French bakery stile restaurant. Good for breakfast mainly. I wish they has a coffee fanatic who knew how to prepare a good expresso, the machine is there though.

I am a pastry chef, and this was my go-to with my boyfriend for breakfast and dessert. Stunning. Some nights they had different plated desserts but every morning they had the lovely croissants and coffee. Many things to choose from, never had lunch or dinner. Pastries are spot on though.

Probably one of the best breakfast in Playa Del Carmem. I'm not into croissants but those were incredible. I suggest to order the continental breakfast + pain au chocolat. Try to arrive before 10 am. Otherwise, u can face a wait list, specially on Sundays.

First time here here. Food was delicious, Pastries were delicious, the Nutella banana smoothie and the tiramisu were my favorite, the service was excellent as well. The restaurant is almost at the end of la Quinta Avenida, I had no idea the street ran down this far. It's our fifth time here in Playa and we had never been this... More

Totally delightful! I was strolling along looking for a nice breakfast and found a gem. Greeters were friendly but not pushy. Had the breakfast special which included a ham and cheese omelette with potatoes, a delicious baguette with butter and a great marmalade, orange juice (fresh I think) and a choice of coffee drinks for $95 pesos ( under $7...

traveling with 2 pre-teens and trying to talk them into eating at a French café for breakfast isn't always easy but they LOVED it! Crazy fresh pastries, very reasonable prices, huge servings, and lots of locals eat here so you know it's good! They also have a To-Go counter when you want to eat something on the way to the...

One of my favorite spots that I never miss going to. Great food and wonderful pastries. It's always crowded but the wait is never that long and is worth it. The lemon tart is my favorite but I've loved everything I've had there.
