He was relatable and was able to converse with me and accommodate my diet as a vegetarian. The decor and food is a mixture of Latin and French. Excellent baguette! According to the label on the door, this restaurant received... More

Stopped by this bakery two mornings in a row for breakfast, YUM! Great quiche choices and super yummy sweet pastries. Excited to find this place in the neighborhood where we were staying for a few nights. They also have great espresso! Will visit here next time, thank you for having vegetarian options :)

Very conveniently located within Playacar, L'Atelier provides fresh baguettes, croissants, quiches and many delicious pastries all baked in house and served in a warm atmosphere by friendly staff. This place however is more than a typical boulangerie, in that it also serves warm dishes made to order. Whether you'd like to sit down for a breakfast of eggs made to... More

The real deal! The baguette is to die for, pain au chocolat and pain au raisin are fantastic. I had a 3 cheese quiche that melted in my mouth! They also make salads, sandwiches (with baguette bread), and much more. This little place in Playacar is a gem. You don't have to go to Paris anymore, it's here in Playa... More

We buy our bread here and have eaten here a few times for light snacks, mainly pasteries. The bread is very good and the pasteries even better. It is small and located in Pakal. That makes it a long walk but worth it. By the time you walk there and back you will have used up all the calories from... More
