Our Top Picks for Best Bakeries in Playa Del Carmen

It might be surprising that there are no Mexican style bakeries on our favorite list. Or rather it might not be that surprising if you have visited a few. Mexican bakeries tend to have the same products and they tend to be a little dry. Here are top picks in alphabetical order.

  1. Chez Celine. We like the wide selection in this French bakery, not to mention good tasting tarts, croissants, and other sweet treats.
  2. Da Brot Bakery. This bakery is out of the way of tourist but those that seek it get a pick of some homemade goodness from this German style bakery. Check out the fresh baked breads for meal and the pastries for a treat.
  3. Pastelateria Bakery. We choose this bakery because they have some excellent cakes to go. You can pick up a cake for that special event here. This Playa Del Carmen bakery has gourmet taste and also a wide selection of items.
