The Pitted Date

Update: The Pitted Date is Closed in Playa Del Carmen. 

From what started as a vegan bakery in Playa Del Carmen, The Pitted Date has transformed into full-fledged vegan wonderland. They have now expanded into a restaurant, but don’t worry, you can still have their vegan treats for dessert. If you are looking for a great vegan restaurant in Playa Del Carmen or just delicious food, this is a very good restaurant to try.

Don’t let the words vegan or vegetarian scare you away. This restaurant is for everyone, and you just might not even miss some ingredients. This is because they have skillfully developed tasty food. One thing you really have to try is their vegan eggs. Made from a list of well-crafted ingredients, their vegan eggs are fluffy, yellow and tasty. They just are missing the guilt. Like most of the food here, you will feel satisfied and light. You will not feel stuffed and heavy.

Owners Emma and Oscar have invested a lot into this new restaurant, both in design and recipes. The interior is a trendy modern/industrial design, and the food is fresh and colorful. We highly recommend stopping by here for a meal.
