I've visited this cafeteria with some friends in the past that love coffee, we sat outside at the open area and ordered some desserts and coffee, I was nicely surprised of the taste of both (good dessert and good coffee), the service was rater slow, I assume because of being so popular, but overall a nice experience. Prices are mid... More

Absolute the best for breakfast or tea time in the afternoon. Real French pastries: crepes, pain au chocolat, croissants, eggs, juices. A great quality and value for money

We went here twice for brunch - both days it was excellent! There is always a wait but both times we didn't have to wait for more than 15 minutes - and it was so worth it! The croissants were soft and fresh and the chocolate eclair was divine! The homemade boursin with scrambled eggs was my favourite dish.

They have a delicious breakfast. I only ate in the morning but I've hear the food is great in the lunch and dinner. They have the best pastries in Playa del Carmen. Amazing.

The pastries are delicious, excellent coffee, and the sandwiches are great. We are still at Playa and we have been to Chez Celine for breakfast, for to go dinner, and to go pastries. The lemon tart is our favorite.

It is worth stoping by for pastries to go, if you have free morning and enough time stay for breakfast. I am a foodie so I always take some pastries as a "souvenir" for my family and friends, it is that good!!
