Start the Day with the Best Breakfasts in Playa del Carmen

One of the best things about staying in Playa del Carmen is the chance to try its eclectic choice of restaurants. Playa, as locals call it, is home to countless eateries, each with its own unique personality.

There's something luxurious about going out for breakfast and starting your day with a delicious, relaxing meal. For an upscale brunch experience, try Plank or Imprevist. Diners will enjoy an authentic French patisserie at Chez Celine. Sometimes the best food just happens to also be the most economical, and at Fonda Regina, Kaxapa Factory, Afrodisiako and La Senda, visitors won't be disappointed about the food or the prices. Diente de Oso, orginally known for their gourmet hamburgers, offers yummy, creative breakfasts. Want breakfast on the beach? Lido Beach Club has got you covered.

La Cueva del Chango continues to offer one of the most popular breakfasts in Playa del Carmen, so get there early.

Enjoy a lesiurely meal at these restaurants that offer Playa del Carmen's best breakfasts.
