RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 March 2017

On our recent 3 week visit to Playa we frequented this establishment the most (5 breakfasts, 4 afternoon coffee breaks). Their attention, service and food is outstanding. Everything is fresh and cooked as requested. There are a wide assortment of choices to suit everyone's taste. My husband enjoys omelettes while I am more of a yogurt and fresh fruit kind... More

We had the best crepes in a while and it was Chez Celine in Playa del Carmen. The environment was so nice, just on the 5th avenue, the staff kind. The only thing I wished the portions were bigger because it was so good! You have to try it if you visit Playa!

Living in Mexico I do miss my home so this is a good option. They even have sirops. The quiche was nice though I prefer it firmer. Taste was great. The roast beef baguette was nice though I did not taste the horseradish sauce so I asked for mustard. Service was good and prices too. Desserts seem tasty. Will definitively... More

So, if I was going to go anywhere for breakfast, anywhere in the world, this would be in my top ten, no problem. They have a great mix of good food, reasonable prices ( esp on 5th ave) and lovely staff. Oh, and a lovely location, too. We have been there 5/6 times over the past two weeks, and every... More
