“The french corner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

When you walk into Chez Celine, you immediately think you're in France..from the fresh smelling baguettes to the french music playing softly in the background. They have awesome breakfasts here and it was so good we also came back a few times for lunch and a light dinner with wine. I had a crepe and my wife tried the cured meats. We love this place and will definitely visit on our next trip.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Wonderful treat in Playa del Carmen! Delicious pastries and a tempting breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Service is excellent and attentive. Decor is gorgeous and the outdoor seating area a pleasure to relax in. Prices are reasonable and value for the service and food. A mini break favorite is the combo that includes a coffee drink like cafe au lait with three mini desserts that include creme brulee, chocolate mousse and a tart of your choosing for less than $7. Went twice in a week it was so good!

They do reasonably priced breakfasts here. Great bread, croissants and French bakery products. it gets very busy on the weekends, so be prepared to wait.

“Best Bread and Pastries in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We have been coming to Chez Celine for more than a year or so. It is a family favorite! I have never ordered anything that I was disappointed with!

The food is extremely fresh and tasty. We come for breakfast and lunches. So far the best sandwiches in Playa.

Yes, sometimes the wait can be long but that is due to the volumes of people who want to dine there. It's usually quite busy on Sundays too.

Service is always friendly!

“Provence in Playa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

How I love French food! I crave it all the time. So it was wonderful to find Chez Celine on 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. We had a late lunch there on our first day and ended up returning for breakfast every day. We had delicious tapenade, salads and sandwiches. All of the French pastries were excellent. For around $5.50 you can get a continental breakfast of fresh OJ, a baquette with butter and homemade jam (we had strawberry one day and banana the following days), a croissant just out of the oven and your choice of cafe au lait, regular coffee, or Mexican hot chocolate. Quite a bargain! One issue to keep in mind is that they do not accept credit cards, but there are banks and ATM's all over Playa del Carmen.
