The food was not good at all. And the service was not any better. Seen roaches in the windows. Needless to say we will not be going back.

Was told by a local that this was a great little place to stop and have a breakfast like one you would cook at home. When we walked in the place we knew that the majority of the people there were locals. We ordered the sweet pancakes, scramble eggs home potatoes, and sausage patties. Everything was great, and the service... More

We stopped here for lunch on a whim. I like local meat and threes for the most part. It was pretty typical, an older facility with low rent adapted to the concept. We ordered vegetable plates. I had green beans that were too salty to eat, cabbage that had been in a pot for at least a day if not... More

Food is very tasty and the service was incredible. I travel to Panama City on business and eat here frequently. You can't go wrong with the daily lunch specials.

Our server was very friendly and helpful. Food was definitely not great. Roll was hard and cold. Mashed potatoes were instant. I had roast beef and it was tough and cold. The peach cobbler was delicious, which is why I gave a 2 and not 1. The restaurant was old, seemed somewhat dirty and things needed to be fixed throughout.

We stopped in our travels on a hunch and had a pleasant southern breakfast/lunch. Very friendly service and good value. The food was basic with a wide selection of vegetables. My omelet was average, but the apple cobbler was excellent. Good spot for a cheap informal meal.

Panama Café is not a chain restaurant (a good thing) and does a really great job with typical American breakfast. The wait staff is friendly and the prices are very reasonable.

A nice quaint restaurant that should be on your list of places to eat. I stopped by for breakfast and enjoyed the home cooked meal that was served. They offer an early bird menu, but I chose to eat from the regular menu and had the omelet. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I look forward to eating here again.
