This is a French bakery. Great baguette and pastry. Extremely busy for breakfast. Always a line and worth the wait.

Stopped here for breakfast on the recommendation of the woman we rented from. Delicious. Came back 3 times during our stay. The croissants were the best I've ever had. A delicious breakfast followed by a stop in the bakery for some snacks......can't be beat.

Our favorite place for breakfast! My husband loves savory and I love sweet, Chez Celine makes us both happy! My husband's favorite is the ham and cheese croissant served with a sunny side up egg on top, and I adore the almond croissant with chocolate spread! The cappuccino and lattes are better than Starbucks and, the fresh squeezed orange juice... More

This French cafe gets very busy so note that the wait is worth building an appetite! Whether you want something healthy like an omelette and a green juice or choose from a variety of fresh crunchy croissant with a coffee, this is one of my favorite places to enjoy a casual breakfast or brunch. Dress lightly as you will enjoy... More

Good coffee, you need to arrive early if you want to avoid waiting for a table. Ask for a coffee, a cake or a crepe. There is construction a cross the street but not disrupting, there seems to be construction in many places in Playa these days.

Service was ok but food for breakfast was standard but not exceptional. Service was slow. Look other places. There are a lot of better breakfast spots in this town.

The staff here were very attentive, even when the place was full. They make excellent coffee and ensure the customer is satisfied without ever hovering. The cafe sells pastries as well as light meals. You can sit inside if you want to be a tad cooler.

Chez Celine is in my humble opinion is the best. We go there often for a good breakfast or lunch. In the afternoon it is a great place for a light snack (French pastry) and coffee. The outside seating is like a French setting, inside is cooler with a wonderful fragrance of fresh bread. Jose speaks English well! Tell him... More

This place is always busy and rightfully so. They make a terrific lunch and have a wonderful menu with lots of choices. Right on fifth Avenue you can sit outside and watch the people while you enjoy a very good lunch. We did come back for dinner and were surprised at the menu was exactly the same. There really was...
