“It is the breakfast you crave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Everything is fresh and hot and good. My favorite changes from the breakfast burrito to the breakfast sandwich and back again. The coffee is good and hot. If all that wasn't enough, a display case full of fresh empanadas and fresh made breads will further tempt your palate...

“Expat hangout, tea time, great breads, yummy sandwiches, local gossip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

We've been in Boquete for a week and have become "regulars" here for lunch and afternoon tea. The sandwich board outside claims it specializes in fresh, European style breads. The breads are indeed excellent! We observed a lot of carry-out business of multiple bags of warm bread loaves.

My favorite sandwich has been a simple BLT although I've tried the "Volcano" a couple of times and enjoyed it. Tea time cookie? Molasses!

In any other town I'd be annoyed by an ill-mannered clientele that brings in its dogs ( a true pestilence in Boquete ) and yammers on cell phones, but we're in town to gather info and met no one here playing close to the vest!

The service is the best we've encountered in Panama. This is a VERY hard-working staff!

“Very Nice Bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Great fresh baked gourmet breads, not inexpensive but worth the price. Sandwiches were OK, and inexpensive, but the coffee comes out of a push button machine

Our house coffee is Cafe Ruiz, locally grown and roasted in Boquete. We brew fresh batches all day long for our customers that want a "local" coffee. We try to tell all of our customers that the cappuccino is from a machine and let them make their own choice.

“Great sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

We ate here about 4 times in the week. Great sandwiches to take on the road or sit and enjoy with a banana milkshake.

“Tasty!”

Coffee just the way it should be. Breakfast burrito was tasty, service was great and atmosphere was perfectly peaceful outside on the patio.
