Chou Chou Café
With seating on the wrap-around veranda as well as indoor seating, there’s plenty of space. Once you sit down and sample some of the treats here, you may want to stay a while. The vibe is great—friendly, fresh and relaxed!
The French-cuisine-inspired menu is delightfully creative and healthy. Whether you’re brunching or lunching, there are lots of options from the Tuna Melt to a Croque-Monsieur to the quiche of the day.
Just popping in for a mid-morning coffee break? Some of Mexico’s finest coffee is served here. The aroma is tantalizing!
If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love the tarts and eclairs. Have a look at the display case and see what catches your eye. We recommend the turmeric latte—so delicious & nutritious.
This eco-friendly café and bakery is also a recycling depot. The coffee bar itself is a reused shipping container, and much of the decor incorporates recycled items used as planters and shelving. Locals who recycle here receive 15% off, so sign up for that if you plan to stay in Playa del Carmen for a while!
Be sure to check out the gift shop, too. It features handmade soaps, lip balms, beauty products and jewelry that you just won’t find anywhere else.
Chou Chou Café is located on the corner of 20th Ave and 24th street…just a short walk from MEGA grocery store. It’s open every day from 6:30 am; closed Mondays.
