Balche Playa Restaurant and Store

Balche Playa serves just vegetarian food and has been doing it for a little time now so they must be doing things right. They have the main restaurant on 10th Street.

The restaurant sits on a side street that is a little less busy and you can relax on the porch and have a meal. The location is also good because they are across from Yoga Loft and offers a healthy eating option for people that go to yoga.

Organic Store

The store here is smaller then other health and vegan stores in Playa but has a small selection of goods. They have things like organic honey, stevia, moringa, and agave and coconut products.

Our Recommendations

This is a quality vegetarian restaurant that sticks to it’s principals. Since it is a little specialty it is more expensive. Expect to spend about 150 pesos a person for a meal. The porch is a nice place to eat and relax. Overall expect a nice experience here with fresh food.

3 Comments on Balche Playa Vegetarian Restaurant and Store

  1. I am a vegetarian and when I travel I love to check out new places especialy if they use local ingredients. I found Balche restaurant on your vegetarian guide and I gave them a try. I really liked the juices they had and waters. Good place.

  2. This vegetarian restaurant has a nice setting and good solid food. I stopped by here twice on my trip to Playa Del Carmen and really enjoyed it both times.

  3. I like this vegetarian restaurant but it is not my favorite. There are so many good vegetarian restaurants now in Playa Del Carmen. It is good to have this one but also be sure to check out Clorofila and Bio Organicos.
