I always go there and the truth is that it's excellent. The desserts are amazing, sometimes to much time waiting, but in the end it's worthy.

A staple in north Playa del Carmen. I have eaten breakfast here very often in the last 5 years. Not cheap but very reliable. Great pastries and authentic French baguettes. Highly recommended.

I have tried many places here for breakfast, this is by far my favorite. French and Mexican breakfasts. Perfect combination. Fast service and the waiting list runs fast as well.

We went around 11 am and the place was packed with people have breakfast so we opted for takeout. Sampled each of their mini tarts, a coffee eclair a pain du chocolate, an almond croissant and a chai latte. It was a bit of a jungle at the take out counter as well but eventually got our order. We were... More

Don't go to PDC without trying one of their Almond Croissants. If the breakfast line-up to get a table is too long, opt for take out. Their take-out is quick.

We went there for breakfast and waited for about 15 minutes. The food was great and the service was fast. The best part is that you can get their variety of pastries. They are very good!!

Was posted on here that this place is gluten friendly. Unless you are looking for dry brownie like chocolate cake, this is not the place. They also have a creme brûlée but did not get to try it. Waited to be served and gave up

We are here almost every morning of our trip. Yummy quality food with tons to choose from. They're fresh juices and pastries were delicious! We would always take a couple things to go to snack on at the beach.
