We stopped by to get a dessert after having dinner at a restaurant nearby. We had the classic crepe with Nutella and banana- loved it!!! The kids wanted to go back the day after too... The owner was a friendly and nice guy, and it was obviously a popular place for the locals too, which always is a good sign!... More

We visited this place daily for breakfast while on holidays. Loved the fresh fruit with yogurt and granola but the crepes and smoothies were fantastic as well. The owner was lovely and happily chatted to us while making our food each day. Highly recommended.

Really good big, filling crepes. They had great variety and flavor combinations. They are made right in front of you. Also great smoothies and it was fairly cheap. Make the stop for breakfast if your in Playa!

Its the tiniest place on tenth ave. Those crepes hit the spot though. It was always packed with the kids from the hostel down the block. The owner is actually french and he was very nice and accommodating. spot is very cute and super clean. I recommend coming here for that craving.

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
