Stumbled upon this little gem of a shop near the beginning of my trip, as was so glad I did!!!
Just a two minute walk away from the hustle of 5th Avenue I found the best coffee in all of Playa, add this to the delicious snacks on offer and the most genial host you could wish to meet make this place a five star winner!!!
Paul, the owner, made me feel so welcome, offered his recommendations from his own small but lovely menu and had plenty of great suggestions for restaurants and sights to see in the area during my stay that really enhanced my trip, I ended up visiting practically every day often more than once.
The atmosphere of the place suited me down to the ground, relaxed and easy going, and the number of locals I saw regularly in there says it all.
In short, my one piece of advice to anyone visiting Playa del Carmen is to walk the extra 50 meters past Starmucks and find yourself a REAL coffee....
