“A sweet stop …”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

Chez Celine is a lovely spot to start or end the day. Servers are really pleasant and welcoming. Beautiful selection of fresh baked breads and sweets and the hard working bakers are visible in the kitchen behind glass windows. Very cool. Coffee was delicious, hot mocha beverage rivaled Ah Cacao, and the almond croissant I enjoyed was melt in your mouth luscious. Treat yourself to a little bit of heaven … or a lot of heaven … at Chez Celine. You'll definitely go back. Often.

“Quick stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

Quick stop at Chez Celine while an afternoon storm was raging and the cheese plate was excellent and the wine quality perfect. A bit pricey maybe for a place in Playa but it is French so it was expected LoL

“Paris in Playa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Lovely setting for breakfast or late night indulgence. Nice selection of baked goods and sweets. Service is quicker and more attentive than most places in Playa (or Paris for that matter).

“Almost everyday !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Great place to start every day! I always go for a run on the 5th and this is my spot for a perfect breakfast. The staff is very attentive and service is super fast, the food is so goooood and everything is "hand made" so it gives you a "home like feeling"

Choose this place and you will become addicted to it :)

“Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

I live in playa and I go here after yoga. If I can get myself to bike to the other side of town and go to my yoga class, then I get Chez Celine as a reward. I've been to Paris twice and never had a pastry as delicious as they make here. Try the chocolate croissant and the chantilly with fresas. You will never be the same
