This cafe is no longer ~ I came to find breakfast this morning but Mama's Place is only a cake shop now. Not serving food or breakfast. They do have beautiful cakes, but I was looking for breakfast.

Laid back with great comfort food! This is a place for casual dining! Love the food, the owner and the girls who look after the owner!

Found this quaint spot in our last day in PDC - located right by Maya Villas and El Taj. Breakfast was about $7 per person. It included coffee or juice, eggs any style, fruit salad and bread I believe. Extremely clean and decorated tastefully. Took a little longer than I like for breakfast to be served as we were the...

Fresh, fresh, fresh. Each of our meals was a one off creation by the chef and we were thrilled with the simplicity and great taste of the dishes. We were traveling with teenagers and they were as happy as we were, after days of all-inclusive hotel food.

Cute little patisserie on a side street off fifth ave, spotlessly clean and nicely decorated with tables inside and outside- really nice vibe.

Hello- We found this little "gem" tucked in on 16th, close to 5th Avenue- next to our hotel, Acanto. We went there several times for evening treats as well as breakfast. Loved sitting on the little sidewalk early in the morning, ordering our american type breakfast with fresh fruit. We had great conversation with our server. Just amazing. This family... More
