You don't get to say you visit Mazatlan if you don't have breakfast at Panama. I don't remember seeing a bigger menu in any other restaurant. Get adventurous and pick one from their Mexican breakfasts... you won't regret!

I have been coming down to Mazatlan for over twenty years. One of my first stops is always to the Panama Bakery. They have the best bread that you could ever get. And...the pastries are to die for. I always buy both to take back to the hotel for breakfasts and snacks. The Panama restaurant is a very good place... More

Their breakfast menu is second to none. Unique Mexican breakfast that is very consistent. This restaurant is very clean and friendly. The food is always fresh and just a comfortable place to eat. Unbelievable deserts roll around the restaurant on a cart making it impossible to refuse. I have been going to Mazatlan for 30+ years all of Feb. and... More

Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner all excellent. Prices may be a bit high. This year we were disappointed with the bakery products didn't seem to be that fresh. And selection not as big as usual. Tostadas one of our favorite items on menu.

We love Panamas Bakery & Restaurant in Mazatlan. We have been traveling there for over 20 years and we always frequent this amazing local eatery, I highly recommend the tostada plate with the best sauces you've evertasted!!

This one is waaay overcrowded and they don't have a very good selection of cakes, however, if you want to eat a meal then this is the one you want since the smaller one in the historic district only sells sweets and I think sandwiches.

This is a great place to go to escape the heat because there's air conditioning. You know it's good when the locals go there, and Panama is full of locals. The food is always clean and consistent. I always get the tostadas because they're SOOOOO GOOD! I really like the downtown location near the cathedral.

Whether we go for breakfast or go back after dinner for dessert it is Top notch. On the weekends and often during the week expect to wait to get a table. But it is worth it. The in store bakery is out of this world. I have gone just with another couple and with 30 people and never have had... More

The variety of dishes and quality of food is excellent. I wish they can serve beer. Very well located surrounded by all kinds of shops and other restaurants, it is a couple of blocks from the beach. Very good price for the quality you get.
