We were there twice during our time in PDC for breakfast. I had waffles once and french toast the second time. Included with the main is coffee, juice, a muffin/croissant basket and fruit plate. The mains were not big but given everything that came with and the heat in PDC, I didn't want a huge American/Canadian style breakfast. The service... More

We finally dined at Imprevist on our 5th trip to PDC. After hearing for years about how good this place was our expectations were very high. We sat at one of the tables streetside and that might not have been a good idea. The road was very close and the constant drone of passing traffic did little for the ambience,... More

Great breakfast place on a quiet street off of 5th Ave. Loved that every breakfast included fresh fruit, granola, and an assorted bread basket.

We ran into Imprevist by staying at the Maya Villa property in Playa del Carmen. With our week-long condo rental, we received breakfast vouchers to Imprevist. It quickly became one of the highlights of our day while on vacation. The few is outstanding. Both typical American breakfast items (Pancakes, waffles, omelettes) as well as Mexican items (Sopes are OUTSTANDING, chilaquiles).... More

Very enjoyable and friendly staff that greet us and welcomed us in. They were very helpful with the brunch menu. We both ordered the omelette breakfast with, juice, fruit plate, bread/muffin basket with homemade jam. Everything was well prepared and delicious. Ate inside rather than close to the street outside.

The catch of the day was delicious. It was grouper and vegetables cooked in parchment. The aroma of sauce and herbs was fabulous. I will return to Imprevist when visiting in Playa del Carmen.

This tiny little, but very elegant, restaurant serves the very best breakfast/brunch menu in town. It is a must for foodies and discerning travelers. Try their Eggs Benedict and their Waffles with Fruit, for sure. Their pastries are incredible. Everything is top notch at this little sidewalk bistro, reminiscent of Paris.
