The Pitted Date is a vegan bakery and café here in Playa Del Carmen. They offer healthy options for those that like vegan eating. The name (The Pitted Date) comes from the use of many dates used in the baking.
Owners Oscar and Emma have put a lot of work into this small bakery to make it feel charming and as well tasty. There is a seating area on the front patio and a nice clean store with a window to the bakery where the magic happens.
This bakery should fit in very nicely on 26th Street because it is next to Bio Organicos vegetarian restaurant. It is a good street to get a healthy meal and then dessert.
You can order whole pies and cakes with 48 hours notice now.
Below is a sampling of what they have. There are brownies, tarts, pies, tapioca cups and cheesecake. Why not stop in and say hi to this bilingual couple and taste some vegan treats. Prices range from about 30-120 pesos each.

I am glad Playa has a vegan bakery now. I like the people here but not sure how long it will survive since there is not a huge demand for the good and the prices are a little steep.
