Ran into this place with my husband, and man we were pleasantly surprised. The gelato is as good as the one in Italy, portions are very generous, and price is very reasonable. A must go to

I dropped in to grab chocolate gifts to go. They offered several samples which helped define the gifts I purchased. The Chile Chocolate bar is amazing! Got an iced tea to go! Glad I stopped by.

Not sure when I last reviewed this place but I know I haven't done it since my last visit to Playa in Sept'15, so here it is... this place has the best gelato (ice cream) in Playa del Carmen, and it's not really even close! In addition, it's very fairly priced... about 40% less than any of the many Aldos... More

We were staying on 38th for part of our time in Playa del Carmen. Our kids asked daily if we could return for more ice cream! They have a lot of things to offer, but we only had desserts with them- all of them were amazing! I wish we had tried their chocolates, they look so great.

Loved this place since it opened and happy to see the menu expanded to include freshly baked croissants, breads and pastries. My favorite dessert is the Crepe Suzette. Perfect crepes bathed in beautifully flavored sauce of butter and fresh orange with just the right amount of Grand Marnier.

Fantastic selection of chocolates and pastries and nougat. Really helpful and friendly staff too. If you like chocolate you will find something to your liking in here and they do lots of other stuff too like crepes in the evening. Great find!

Had breakfast here this morning. Started with a chocolate banana milk shake and chocolate banana crepe that were both excellent. Then had the Mexican omelette. The red sauce(wild sauce) had great flavor and heat. I don't know how long they have been doing breakfast but it is for sure on my list for places to have breakfast now. 👍👍
