Description: We're a small independent coffee shop selling Mexican coffee. The beans are from Chiapas and toasted and blended here in Playa. We have light food to accompany your hot or cold coffees and teas. From filled bagels and croissants to light salads and delicious cakes and cookies. Sanctuary just a block and half from the busy 5th Avenue and right in the centre of town. You can pop in for your coffee fix and a chat or grab one and run. We have a delivery service too if you need us! Free wi-fi and a smile. Hope to see you soon!

“Awesome local coffee shop!”

Just got back from Coffee Stop and had an awesome breakfast and a great conversation with Paul, the owner. Just a little way from the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave., Coffee Stop is a little sanctuary to start your day. Highly recommend it!!!

“Skip Starbucks People!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

If you are looking for the best coffee in Playa del Carmen, go and visit Coffee Stop! It is only a two minute walk off of 5th Ave on 10 calle (street) between 10th & 15th Ave. We ordered an iced americano with milk and a mocha frappe. Both were perfection in a cup and 1/2 the price of Starbucks. The coffee was smooth with a rich flavour profile. You are in mexico, skip Starbucks, and try the excellent local coffee. You will not be disappointed. We also tried the layered chocolate cake which was also killer good. We loved the coffee so much we ordered some to take back to our condo. Coffee from mexico is an excellent choice as gifts for your friends and family back home, get it at Coffee Stop. You do need to order it in advance, his order comes in every Wednesday. Go and talk to Paul the owner, or Felix his employee. They are both super nice, friendly, and a wealth of information on anything Playa del Carmen. Coffee Stop also offers free wifi which is a bonus!

“Great stop in the morning!”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

My husband and I had a great time, stopping here twice, before hitting the beach. Kind of hard to find your first time in Playa del Carmen, but the coffee was great and so were the bagels! We LOVED the jam and Manchego bagels (to die for!). We will be back the next time we are in town! Service was wonderful and made you feel like you come there everyday! What a nice place!

“100% worth the stop for coffee”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Amid the bustle of 5th Avenue, The Coffee Stop was just what I needed for a quiet relaxing coffee in the comfort of a large white chair. The cheese and ham croissant was delicious and all freshly prepared.
Paul and Eva are fab and even when it poured down with rain in September Paul was out delivering an order to another local business!
Great for a quick takeaway coffee or snack or a longer break.
The coffee was so smooth in taste - quality. Paul sells this by the bag too and was impressed as returning customers coming in to buy it. Says it all.
Do go to visit if you're out and about in Playa - Paul is from East London and is a real top bloke.
