5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

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

“Understated, simple but smart cafe with delicious crepes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

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 I was there, but service was very quick and had my crepe served within 15 minutes.

I had a ham, egg and onion sauce crepe; simple but careful presentation and tasted terrific.

“Gluten-Free Panama!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

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 to find this little gem.

Hi Lap_of_Luxury_Cat

It was a pleasure to serve the 2 of you guys. Indeed we try to offer healthy and gluten_free food, while keeping descent prices, wit crepes under $10.
I hope to see you again soon.
Kind regards

Lorraine

“Très Bon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

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 our hotel 'Pan Americana'. Would definitely recommend going!
