My wife had the English breakfast ,with 2 eggs , bacon and toast, with hot choco and orange juice. I had the 3 egg omelette with tomato and ham and toast. Really nothing special . They could have made... More

Slow service in the beginning then we got a really good waitress. Despite the name the restaurant is not French, only the part that sells baked goods. The cuisine has more of a Spanish, Italian or international touch to it. Pumpkin soup good. Chicken in mustard salsa not bad. Shrimp ceviche good. Stir fried vegetables tasty. Sit out (hot) sit...

We ate a panini and risotto. The food was delicious, but did not stand out. The creme brule was at best average. The service exceeded most restaurants in Panama. The house wine was average. The lemonade my daughters drank was just ok and far too expensive.

PP is a regular visit when in PTY. Croissants are perfect (try the chocolate and almonds), as well as the breakfast sandwiches. Best coffee service in the city, without trying too hard. Prices are what you would expect of a place with great food and great service.

We stumbled upon Petit Paris while walking around after arriving in Panama City and after trying a chocolate croissant, we went here every morning for them. The coffee was good, the croissants very flakey and delicious, however the macaroon cookies were not as good as we hoped.

Hey! How does $20 for two fried eggs, a few pieces of bread, two coffees and a wee fruit salad of balled melons sound? Good? Then you’re out of your mind and this is the place for you. Maybe this isn't the place for breakfast.

Recommended by our AirBnB owner, we had breakfast at Petit Paris. Food was yummy and fresh. Croissants buttery and flaky. Coffee prepared nicely. Service was pleasant and attentive. We enjoyed it so much we returned the next day for the nutella banana crepes!! Of course this can not be compared to Paris...unless you are in Paris...this was a great breakfast... More

I have been to Paris several times, and France, and petit Paris did not remind me of France at all. Had their crepes, macarons, breads.. The bread is decent, the rest is certainly not memorable. The staff is poorly trained, and the deco, hmm they tried to revamp it somehow, but doesn't look clean, not a a big fan, wouldn't... More
