This is the one of the first places we eat at when visiting Playa. David is a top level chef from Paris. His crepes are really good. He is friendly and will show you how crepes are prepared. Put this place on your bucket list as it is a must do when in Playa.

Fresh delicious crepes prepared right in front of you! Beware--- once you have a bite you are in for a delight and will eat the entire crepe. We all had bananas and Nutella. Must try one if you walk by!!

This place has amazing crepes and smoothies. The owner is warm and welcoming and even gives great recommendations for local food spots. It is a great change of pace from the haggling that is 5th Ave. Should definitely stop by for breakfast or dessert, although the savory crepes make a great lunch.

We visited two nights in a row. The first night we had one with sugar and cinnamon and one with bananas and Nutella. Both were delicious. The second night we shared one made with strawberries and cream which was also delicious. The owner, from France, was able to chat with us about his time in Playa del Carmen. Was definitely... More

"Just discovered this hidden treasure. There are so many small shops and restaurants around Playa Del Carmen that driving down here for years, we missed this one. It's not a restaurant but a little kiosk owned by this great guy from France. We had a delicious sugar, cinnamon and banana crepe after a day riding scooters around Cozumel. Watching him... More

I LOVE crepes and this is the place to get them... We had them twice in the week we were in Playa. They are large enough to share, but so tasty that you may not want to! They have all sorts of wonderful choices available for the fillings. (Highly recommend the caramel & milk combination.) Thank you for an enjoyable... More

We love real French crepes and seeing some great reviews here, my wife and I decided to try this for dinner. We were seriously disappointed, however, because of the lack of fresh ingredients and minimal menu choices. The pancakes were made well but all of the veggie fillings we ordered came right out of cans into the crepes and were... More

Were grime canada and we get thick and doughy crepes most of the time. These crepes are how they should be !! Thin, delicate, and super tasty. Only problem was that the one big crepe my son and I were sharing became the one all three of us shared as my daughter took one bit and couldn't stop herself. Nutella... More
