I rarely review, but this place is way understated in terms of environment, but wonderful people and down home cuisine.

On a corner on Calle 11 in Casco Viejo, so just within the "safe" tourist area. Charming but simply furnished cafe with 10-12 small tables. Really wide selection of savoury ("salados") and sweet crepes. Make sure you look at the specials board for a good choice of great value "menus del dia", chef's specials and so on. Was quiet when...

If you are searching for gluten-free dining in Panama City, look no further. This small restaurant in the Old Town offers the option of buckwheat crepes (which, despite their name, contain NO wheat) in both savory and sweet varieties. The service was friendly and fast and the crepes were reasonably priced. The atmosphere is bright and colorful. We were thrilled... More

My girlfriend and I visited La Petite Bretagne for brunch. Amazing crepes! Service was great, the French hostess explained the menu and helped us pick some great food. It was very good value, the 'menu executivo' was the dish of the day, with a choice of fresh fruit smoothie or desert of the day. Plus, we got 15% off through... More

I've been here a few times now and with every visit, I have become more and more of a fan of this restaurant. The crepes are absolutely delicious and you can see that the owners put a lot of love and effort into the creative crepe-fillings. Furthermore, the chef takes the time to talk personally to the customers to get... More

I've been here twice now: once for mid-week lunch and once for Sunday brunch. I can't speak highly enough of the artistry, love and authentic ingredients that go into these dishes - you won't find anything else like this in Panama. The proprietor is clearly a talented chef who loves this cuisine and takes more care over it than is... More
