Best view and better coffee

We were driving around Alto Jaramillo and found this place, it has a great view and you can enjoy some snacks, sandwich or coffee. The attention is very good and the prices are better. You can go there and enjoy a coffee while sitting in a sofa that looks at Boquete from the top.

I have been coming here for a number of years now, and evolved with the restautant over the years. I have been in a two-top or a large group, and not disappointed in either setting. Sitting on the porch next to the river is a very pleasant setting too!

My daughter and I stopped after taking a drive to see the views. Great place a little over half way up the hill. Relaxing place to drink a cup of coffee and enjoy the view of the beautiful gardens below, and scenic view beyond.

If you go for views, this is the place to stop by. You will have magnificent views on the volcano and the village. If it is coffee you are looking for, keep on driving. The quality does not surpass the average trucker cafe. In a country where coffee is among the top attractions, you wouldn't expect to be disappointed on... More

The location alone would be enough for 5 stars. Priceless views and friendly owners. The food was really good and reasonably priced. Not overly salted like most of our meals in Panama.

We rented a scooter for the day and explored all the roads in and out of Boquete. Towards the end, we stumbled across this awesome little coffee shop. The view was spectacular and there was nothing wrong with the brownie. Basically we felt like we had discovered something that wasn't quite as obvious as some of the other places in... More

My boyfriend and I decided that the vehicle in front of us seemed like they knew where they were going, so we followed on the extremely winding road into the mountains of Boquete. It seemed like forever, but the car in front of us finally pulled off the road in front of what looked like a small café/restaurant on the... More

Like the atmosphere, serene, calm almost zen..Griselda was very friendly..the cabins are clean, have kitchen in it. It's perfect for couples. I don't reccomend this place for family vacationing..is just too quiet..

If you have a car, take a drive around Jaramillo alto and stop by this cute cafe for a treat and a view. Perfect place to take some photos of the surrounding mountains and valley. Just gorgeous! While you are there, have a cup of coffee, a piece of yummy pie or one of their fruit smoothies! You can hike... More
