Increíble!
I’ve been in Playa Del Carmen for two days now. I’ve eaten here twice already. The food is amazing, the staff are wonderful. They already know my name. Very cute, hip and warm atmosphere. I have to eat gluten free. Most of the menu is gluten free and vegan. The dishes certainly don’t taste like your usual gluten free meals and the most certainly do. It look like them either. Beautiful presentation, high quality fresh ingredients and wonderful flavors.
This is a must for anyone and everyone.

When i questioned the water here Nicole informed me that it is the best and freshest in playa. It is collected rain water that is purified locally providing many jobs here. ;)

The minute I strolled passed The Pitted Date, on our way to 5th Ave from our Condo, I said to my husband and girls.. now there's a place I need to go. They are not as enthusiastic about vegan food in general. However, upon tasting the smoothies, my daughter who isn't normally into vegan food, decided to try the sweet crepes for breakfast. She even had left overs and wanted more. Absolutely divine vegan food.
I'm from San Francisco and we do vegan pretty darn well, but this place is something else. I had a smoothie first, simply fantastic. I needed that to begin my day. I went here for breakfast and had the panini with a side of roast potatoes, It was delicious. I always admire the care and love true vegans put into plant based food. I could tell from my first bite, this was such a place. It is warm, friendly and inviting. The staff will recommend, fix if you don't like, and check in on you. Oh and they are committed to our planet - that meant the world to me. Straws are stainless steel, cups are recyclable and I watched them compost left overs. Well done!!
I highly recommend the vanilla dream for kids.. my daughter had it twice.

Thank-you so much for your amazing review! So happy your non-vegan daughter enjoyed her food as well. You would be surprised that more than 70% of our clinetele are not vegan. Saving the planet one meal at a time! Hopefully we see you again soon!

After a month in Playa eating at restaurants with 'Vegan Options' it felt so great going to a place that knows how to make really great vegan food! The menu is very breakfast forward (if that's a thing..) and while the place is open from 8-8, after the long full page on the Breakfast side of the menu, the lunch side only has 3 burger-like options (which are fantastic!) and some soups. Don't let any of this deter you, if you're looking for some great vegan food, head down to this place. It will not disappoint!

Thank-you so much... we primarily focus on breakfasts because people are generally at the beach or working through out the day and for evenings people generally want a beer, wine or a cocktail. We are expanding our dinner menu soon to accomadate those requests. Thank-you for your input! Breakfast is served ALL-DAY!!! See you soon! Much Vegan Love!

We love this place as it has many tasty options for my gluten free wife and my vegetarian self. Usually when I go to breakfast I have limited options since I don't eat eggs. At the Pitted Date I had a very hard time deciding on what to order because I had so many great items to choose from! Highly recommend!!!
