“Paris in Playa”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Just like Paris, dogs under the tables and smokers everywhere. Most unfortunate, because the food is fabulous. The place is always very busy, and you may have to wait to get a table. They try to put you inside but, it is too hot and noisy. The pastries are very French, and the baguettes are delicious, we even bought one to take home. We had the ensalada caperse with onion soup which was tasty, but had one large slice of bread one top which was impossible to cut up and eat with just a spoon. There is a counter inside to purchase desserts, which I feel is our only option I the future, the dogs and smokers are a real turn off for us.

“Best Bakery in PDC”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The 1/4 baguette w/butter and homemade jam took me into bread heaven: 'the continental' 68peso= Hot beverage (coffee?) + 1/4 baguette + very buttery croissant.
' Countryside ' 88pesos- Hot bev, fresh OJ (w/pulp) smoked ham & cheese omelet or 67pesos scrambled eggs w/ homemade boursin cheese...melt in your mouth. This place cannot be beat for breakfast.
They have a full line of pastries inside and the eclair chantilly w/sliced strawberries 42peso was out of this world. The croissant con alme...(sorry) was divine 26pesos. Mimosa 60pesos.
Chez Celine has a great exchange rate so you can use your US$.
The chairs are uncomfortable- bring a pillow.
It's Chez Celine I pine for the most because I'm a breakfast person & a bread person.

“Favorite Dessert Place”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We love the Pastries and Coffee. We usually have dinner elsewhere and then walk to Chez Celine for dessert. My favorite is the dessert sampler.
