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

Cute little food stand where the native french owner makes everything with fresh ingredients! Very delicious and good sized crepe for a great price. The owner was so friendly and fun to talk to as well. He is from France but could speak like a Mexican local- so impressive.

Get the banana and nutella crepe. It is the best one. Get any of the smoothies with yogurt in them. He has a special smoothie that is his favorite; ask him about it. It is really good.

It's a small place, basically a hole in the wall, but of course those always have the best food. I really recommend this place to everyone whos in PDC and taste the smoothies as well. They offer big selection of sweet and salty crepes, nice size for good prices. It's " A must "......

I went here at about 3 am to get an after partying snack. Something to absorb my libations... I got a simple Nutella and banana crepe. It was soooo good. I slept well :)
