“My Morning Jolt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

I visited here twice on my last stay to Playa and really enjoyed it. It is a small cafe shop that has some great pastries and delicious cafe. I also could not resist the chocolate croissant each morning either. If you find yourself wanting a Starbucks, give a local place a shot, it is worth the trip.
