“Will be back again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

"Just discovered this hidden treasure. There are so many small shops and restaurants around Playa Del Carmen that driving down here for years, we missed this one. It's not a restaurant but a little kiosk owned by this great guy from France. We had a delicious sugar, cinnamon and banana crepe after a day riding scooters around Cozumel. Watching him hand make it was the best part. One of the best crepes we have ever had. Worth the stop!"

“Crepetacular!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

I LOVE crepes and this is the place to get them... We had them twice in the week we were in Playa. They are large enough to share, but so tasty that you may not want to! They have all sorts of wonderful choices available for the fillings. (Highly recommend the caramel & milk combination.) Thank you for an enjoyable afternoon treat!

“OK for a snack or dessert, not a meal.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

We love real French crepes and seeing some great reviews here, my wife and I decided to try this for dinner. We were seriously disappointed, however, because of the lack of fresh ingredients and minimal menu choices. The pancakes were made well but all of the veggie fillings we ordered came right out of cans into the crepes and were tasteless. There was nothing available on the menu to turn this from a fast food snack into anything resembling a dinner. I must say that the owner-proprietor-cook-waiter, a Frenchman, was such a charming and hospitable host, I am reluctant to post this less-than-stellar review.

We found the place while walking on the 10th street in Playa Del Carmen. Great little stand and great smoothies!

“The way they should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014 via mobile

Were grime canada and we get thick and doughy crepes most of the time. These crepes are how they should be !! Thin, delicate, and super tasty. Only problem was that the one big crepe my son and I were sharing became the one all three of us shared as my daughter took one bit and couldn't stop herself. Nutella and banana for 55 pesos. No bad !! Not quite as good as the ones we had on isla mujeres but a very close second. Super yummy !!
