Sadly La Casa Del Chocolate has had to close. I always stay in Puerto Morelos and every trip to Playa I headed for this store / restaurant. This year I spent about 2 hours looking for it, hoping it had moved but alas it closed. I spoke with the former owner and he said his expenses were just... read more

„Best chocolate in Playa del Carmen“ - I only bought chocolate here, but found that compared to other chocolates I had tried, e.g. at Ah Cacao this one was by far the best. The place is very small but worth any detour. Would have loved to stay longer and try their coffee and hot chocolate, too

Nice little spot serving euro chocolate pastries. The (assumed) owner is very nice (gave us a couple of extra chocolates for free). Skip Haagen Das and the gelato and give this spot a try. Romantic atmosphere away from the hubbub.

Had "coffee" in restaurants around the city but stumbled on this little apart shop & had the best coffee & homemade pastries. The chocolates were to die for! Highly recommend this place!

A little hard to find but well worth it. Stopped to try the chocolates and a dessert after supper. Best ever and so different. Loved it.

Fairly priced chocolate and desserts. Get the hot chocolate, very thick and rich. Fun quick stop in place of coffee or tea.

Delicious and convenient. Walk up coffee bar located on a convenient corner with delicious café con leche and tasty small bakery items. Nice spot to sit and people watch.

We went looking for this place because of the great reviews and we love chocolate. We were not disappointed! The chocolate was divine and the pastries were delicious. It was a tiny little place not far from 5th Ave. Take a chance and check it out. Hope you enjoy it as much as us!
