We had the bacon / goat cheese and the plain nutella, chocolate /bananna shake. OMG they were both delicious, so big and thick and with great fillings, the price is no different from other fancy crepe places that charge the same for thinner /smaller crepes. So it is a great place to take your crepe and shake to go as... More

The crepes are incredible. The owner is super funny and sometimes let you make your own. What a great experience. The Carmel and cheese crepes are amazing. This is a must do

This place is a must visit while you're in Playa. We have been here on multiple trips and can always count on friendly service and a tasty product.

I bought a crepe with Nutella, strawberries and banana. The crepe was kind of soggy, and the strawberries were not fresh. It seemed like they were from a can (have never seen canned strawberries before, but I don't know what else it could have been).

It rained the entire week we were here but this was our bright spot. Nutella made my entire family happy. We ordered Nutella and banana crepes and they were excellent. We were here a few years ago and the same people work here. You have to respect owners that keep their people.

The place has good location and well styled atmosphere. The freshly squeezed juices are excellent, we have tasted almost all. The crepes are big enough for 2 after a good dinner.

This tiny crepe place is about a block off the shopping avenue. We went in the afternoon, so it was quiet, but it might get busy later in the day. Delicious, big crepes. We had one with caramel and manchego (spelling?) cheese, another with the cheese, blackberry jam, and granola. Both were fantastic, though I'll admit we really only needed... More
