Pros: all vegan

Try their vegan eggs - Edit

I visit this place because I’ve heard that their eggs are bomb and man were they right! I tried their bagel-sandwich with scrambled eggs and bacon! I loved he combination of the flavors and it was hard to believe that it was 100% legit! I didn’t liked the atmosphere in the restaurant though as the furnitures and the decor is very ‘stylish and cold’ but the staff is nice and the food is good!

Pros: Vegan eggs , Huge menu , Staff

Cons: Expensive , Bad location , Cold atmosphere

Wow!! Perfection! - Edit

This is so far, hands down, the best vegan spot in Playa Del Carmen!! During our first trip, we tried the hot cakes, mushroom madness sandwich, and the spinach omelette. All of our meals were excellent. I can still taste the pancakes with pure maple syrup. And the mushroom madness sandwich and fries... amazing! The omelette was my least favorite of our orders, but it was still great too! I’ll update this review soon because we will surely stop by a few more times before we leave the city!

*update on 2nd visit* came back the next day and had the waffles, bagelwich, and mushroom omelette. The waffles were good, but not nearly as good as the pancakes. The bagelwich was amazing... just as good as the mushroom madness. The mushroom omelette was also a good bit better than the spinach omelette from yesterday. Food was still ALL amazing, and I’m finding it hard to find a reason to eat anywhere else in Playa. Too bad they are not open for dinner yet.

*update on 3rd visit* this time I tried the savoury crepe and carrot cake. Both were really good!

Pros: everything!!!!

Cons: nothing

Best Vegan Omelette! - Edit

This is an outstanding place in so many ways! The staff are very friendly, it is a relaxing environment and the food is fantastic! Maria recommended the Spinach omelet which, I have to say, is the best I have ever had! The green juice was fresh and wonderful and the coffee was perfect. Don’t miss eating here if you are staying in the area!

Vegan Omelettes! - Edit

This place is incredible! I got a bunch of things but loved the omelette. The waffle was a bit too much for me. A little too heavy but still so good. I love this place and can’t wait to come back to Playa to come here.

Good vibes - Edit

These guys have just relocated closer to the beach. Still have amazing attention to detail and great customer service. Golden Mylk and Chocolate cake are the bomb. Everything is vegan! So happy they exist ♥️

We ate here twice whilst in Playa and would highly recommend! The matcha latte was amazing!! The mushroom bomlette (not correct spelling) was delicious and full of flavour. Make sure you save room for the healthy desserts!!

Mind blowing menu!! - Edit

I've been to a lot of vegan restaurants around the world and Emma's menu is incredible. Vegan omelettes, breakfast bagels, grilled cheese sandwich with soup, cheesecakes, brownies, etc. And it honestly taste better than the "real" thing

Pros: Excellent food, Gluten free options , Comfortable vibe

Cons: Small location

Vegan Fare with a Whole Lot of Love - Edit

For me, The Pitted Date is more than just a vegan eatery or cafe. It is a sanctuary of sorts, a cruelty free nook neatly tucked away on 26 calle, a place where I can go to unwind, write and dream of next adventures. It is the perfect little spot for freelance workers and digital nomads looking for a slice of home (and amazing vegan eats) while abroad. As a long time frequenter of this establishment, I can honestly say that a whole lot of love and intention goes into everything at The Pitted Date. Head chef and owner Emma loves what she does and believes in what she does (as does her partner and business owner, Oscar) and this translates to the plate. The chocolate cake is a must try (and pairs beautifully with an almond mylk latte), the breakfast burrito is the perfect post workout meal, and the mantra salad will have you omming out the door to your evening yoga class. Whether vegan, vegetarian, omnivore or raw foodie, you really have to experience a slice of this vegan love for yourself!

Pros: All day eats, Amazing service, Love, intention & care in food

Cons: cake sells out quickly (too yummy)!, small space

upscale vegan treats - Edit

a little pricier but well worth it.

I have eaten here a few times for breakfast and the portions are great with lots of wholesome food.

you cant go wrong with the breakfast burrito!

also the majority of the food and vaked goods are all raw which makes it even cooler that everything tastes so fantastic. you would never guess the brownies werent baked!

possibly the best vegan option in PDC - Edit

This little spot has a quaint outdoor seating area and serves up some wonderful vegan snack foods & kombucha/juices. We also took a couple "power bars" to go and enjoyed them later. Friendly staff & a great selection.

Pros: close to the action on walking street, great tasting food!

best breakfast ever !!!! - Edit

We were amazed by how delicious was our breakfast ! That we had to go pick dinner on the way back home..
They make this "omelet" from tofu and some kind of chick pea flour + nutritional yeast that taste just like the best omelet in the world, adding caramelized onion, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes in it... and it's breakfast paradise!!!
Price are ok. not too cheap, not too much.
we also had a panini that was fabulous and their Kombucha his tasty and just light enough. Kind staff, sweet location and friendly customers both times we went there.

Pros: Their "vegan egg", the location

Cons: Out of stock of some ingredients at evening

Delicious panini - Edit

I had the mushroom panini with a vegan egg base instead of the lentil patty (they were out). It was pretty amazing, basically perfect. If I had to complain, it's that their prices - 135 pesos for an a la carte panini - are significantly higher than the other 5 veggie places I've been to in the area.
Casual place, only a few tables.

TPD Playa 12 Jan 2017 - Hola…. we are happy you enjoyed our vegan cafe… we are sorry we were out of our lentil patty…. but $135 pesos ($ 6.75US) is actually an incredible price for our paninis. We make everything fresh and in house… Happy you stopped by and sad that we only for a 4* rating…. we had 5* across the board until yours…. oh well…. we will try harder next time….. haste luego!

Very delicious!! - Edit

What a find in Playa del Carmen. They have breakfast all day, plus daily specials. The breakfast burrito is terrific, made with the vegan egg, quinoa, black beans, cashew cream, wrapped in a tortilla, and slathered with guacamole and salsa. At least 10 mostly raw desserts on offer, plus incredible chocolate and regular croissants that they have brought in from a local baker. Homemade nut milks and very delicious juices too.

Pros: opens at 8:30 am, friendly staff, nice vibe

Cons: menu not huge (but it's adequate)
