This very cute (and air conditioned!) coffee shop has the best coffee and lite lunch in Coco. It also has some of the nicest gifts and clothes in town as well. A must see on your trip to Coco!

Nice place and it would get 4 stars if the service was even average. Walked in for a latte and spotted some friends, so I joined them. They had just ordered. I placed my order at the counter. My drink came to me, but my friends beverage was no where to be seen, so they asked about it when the... More

I have been the Congo at Pacifico many many times over the course the past five years. The staff is kind and the quality of the dishes is phenomenal. The Congo breakfast in particular is an outstanding value and great taste love there gallo Pinto.

This is one of my favorite places to relax and enjoy a coffee; but if you're craving a special treat try the coffee or banana milkshakes - they're absolutely addictive. The WiFi here is usually pretty good too, so working online here is quite manageable AND it's got fantastic air-conditioning! :-) Great place to hang out with friends or even... More

We discovered this little gem while waiting to check into our hotel in Playa Panama. The food is fresh, flavorful and delicious. There's also an art gallery/shop to check out while your waiting for your meal. We loved it!
