French Restaurant

“Breakfast packages at excellent prices. Better go between 8-9 because it gets full sometimes and to avoid the line ! Excellent coffee and croissants, French patisserie, eggs any style and fresh orange juice for like 120 pesos, it also has packages with yoghurt, fruits, home made delicious bread etc. It’s the locals favorite place to drink a coffee and talk about life :-)”

Taco Place
$
“You may have already heard of this famous hole in the wall taco joint! It’s off the strip on more of a busy street and while the tacos are truly amazing and the margs are super cheap, beware that the vibes are nothing exciting! It is an authentic little taco stop but totally worth popping in for a quick bite and drink, if not to just be able to say you’ve been, because if you tell someone you went to Playa they will probably ask if you went here!”
