Where every strudel is baked with love
What German-born Anja started as a bread and pastry stand at the weekly Kava Kasa market, is now a fully-fledged brick-and-mortar bakery called Das Brot, (meaning “the bread) in Playa del Carmen. Due to popular demand, she now shares her passion for baking with the public six days a week. It’s the perfect place to mingle with locals and watch the passing crowd—while enjoying delicious morsels still warm from the oven. Das Brot opens at 6:00am so early birds can stop in for a fragrant cinnamon bun after watching the sunrise. There’s also organic coffee on hand, to make the circle of goodness complete.
Head to Das Bros Monday through Friday 6:00am-8:00pm and on Saturdays 8:00am-2:00pm. Find them at 40th Avenue between 8th Street and 10th Street. You can also still find her goodies at the Kava Kasa Market on Tuesday mornings from 8:00am until 1:00pm. Go early because her rye and oat breads sell out quickly!
