Finally i managed to pass by while they are open (in the morning never). They close at 1am . The crepe was Good. The table could have been a bit cleaner but everything else fine

The place has good location and well styled atmosphere. The freshly squeezed juices are excellent, we have tasted almost all. The crepes are big enough for 2 after a good dinner.

This tiny crepe place is about a block off the shopping avenue. We went in the afternoon, so it was quiet, but it might get busy later in the day. Delicious, big crepes. We had one with caramel and manchego (spelling?) cheese, another with the cheese, blackberry jam, and granola. Both were fantastic, though I'll admit we really only needed... More

We have been in Playa many times but just discovered La Crepacabana this trip. David makes the best crepes with Nutella and fresh fruit. So delicious after a meal. Take a break from busy 5th ave and discover 10th. Better prices, less crowds.

This is another hole-in-the-wall type of joint on 10 Avenida that just serves crepes and nothing else. We had a hankering for something sweet while walking around town after supper, and remembered the reviews on TripAdvisor. This is a one-man operation with a single cooking station and a one-page menu. Nutella is prominently featured, but there are plenty of options... More

Imagine you're relaxing on the beach...on a sunny day ... with a lot of kool people around..sun in your face...the occasional cool ocean breeze against your skin, and the continuous subtle scent of ocean. You think you are fully relaxed??? Well that is what I thought until I came across La Crepacabana that is because they make the best crepes... More

I came to this place every evening. I am a critic and this place amazed me. My Belarusian friend agrees with me, and she had authentic creeps, I'm talking best of the best , and even she is amazed. The classics are amazing, but the blueberry with creme cheese crepe is phenomenal.

Beetween the beach and the zocalo, we discovered this "crêperie" when searching a coffee after lunch. We were welcomed by a very kind franco-mexican couple, but the most important is their delicious crêpes. And we had true coffee, not a nescafé as frequently in Yucatan (what a pity for a coffee producing country)!
