“A touch of France in Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Lovely bakery with delicious coffee and croissants (we're still warm & so good there is no need to add any condiments) as well as a very filling continental brekky. Located at the newer end of 5th Ave this is a great place to grab a light brekky on the run or kick back and savour the atmosphere of daytime Playa. Highly recommend a visit.

“Delicious bread and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Almost every morning we bought a 'pan' (fresh baked white bread, still warm), a croissant and a coffee, to have breakfast at our apartment. Everything they have is good: integral (multigrain bread), muffins and petit fours, baguettes, cappucino etc. You can have breakfast, brunch and lunch also at Celines very nice patio: not too big not too small... Conclusion: very fresh bread, very nice people at a perfect location on the fifth avenue.

“Lovely French Cafe in the heart of Playa del Carmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I loved my breakfast at Chez Celine. They even prepared sandwiches for us to take away on our last day. The croissants were lovely and so were other items from the patisserie. A must go when in Playa del Carmen.

“Stopping back on my next trip to Playa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Ventured in this quaint bakery/café towards the end of my trip. I will definitely be going there more often next trip to Playa. The croissants were delicious. I had to purchase a few so I had them for breakfast or lunch the next day. The rest of the bakery looked awesome as well. Let you know more next time.
I do not drink coffee so I cannot review the flavors.

“Beautiful bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Went looking for coffee and discovered Chez Celine on 5th Ave. It looks like a French bakery inside, the coffee is very good, the croissants delightful. I went there early so the croissants were still a little warm
