We have been in Playa many times but just discovered La Crepacabana this trip. David makes the best crepes with Nutella and fresh fruit. So delicious after a meal. Take a break from busy 5th ave and discover 10th. Better prices, less crowds.

This is another hole-in-the-wall type of joint on 10 Avenida that just serves crepes and nothing else. We had a hankering for something sweet while walking around town after supper, and remembered the reviews on TripAdvisor. This is a one-man operation with a single cooking station and a one-page menu. Nutella is prominently featured, but there are plenty of options... More

Imagine you're relaxing on the beach...on a sunny day ... with a lot of kool people around..sun in your face...the occasional cool ocean breeze against your skin, and the continuous subtle scent of ocean. You think you are fully relaxed??? Well that is what I thought until I came across La Crepacabana that is because they make the best crepes... More

I came to this place every evening. I am a critic and this place amazed me. My Belarusian friend agrees with me, and she had authentic creeps, I'm talking best of the best , and even she is amazed. The classics are amazing, but the blueberry with creme cheese crepe is phenomenal.

Beetween the beach and the zocalo, we discovered this "crêperie" when searching a coffee after lunch. We were welcomed by a very kind franco-mexican couple, but the most important is their delicious crêpes. And we had true coffee, not a nescafé as frequently in Yucatan (what a pity for a coffee producing country)!

The blackberry with cream cheese was delicious and DH really liked his savory crepe with eggs. Would definitely like to try a few other flavors! More than expected number of mosquitoes inside the restaurant (more of a little hut) so I'd recommend waiting outside and sitting at the edge of the counter near the exit if you are prone to...

We stopped by to get a dessert after having dinner at a restaurant nearby. We had the classic crepe with Nutella and banana- loved it!!! The kids wanted to go back the day after too... The owner was a friendly and nice guy, and it was obviously a popular place for the locals too, which always is a good sign!... More

We visited this place daily for breakfast while on holidays. Loved the fresh fruit with yogurt and granola but the crepes and smoothies were fantastic as well. The owner was lovely and happily chatted to us while making our food each day. Highly recommended.
