“Huge variety, excellen value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a cafeteria=style restaurant on the main drag. Excellent home-style cooking at everyday prices. If you order the comida corridas (combo menus with lots of choices), you can get a plate piled with rice, beans, meat (beef, chicken, etc), veggies (salad or cooked) and a clove-spiced cooked plantain for about $3.50 or less. Let me say it again for $3.50 or less!!!. Plenty of variety. You could eat every meal here for a week and never try the same thing twice. The place is full of locals, and a couple could easily eat for less than $10 (including drinks), even if you order ala carte. Another bonus is, because it's cafeteria style, you will get served immediately, which is great when you are hungry and can't stand to wait the standard Panamanian-service time in most sit-down restaurants. Long tables that you may have to share during busy times, but hey, make some new friends!

“Best value in Boquete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

Sabroson is a great cafeteria, with a large mix of offerings. While much of the food is Central American in nature, they also offer some interesting fare from other cultures. They have a great chicken lasagna, really good veggie rice, some of the best mashed potatoes you will ever have, and a very large selection of desserts. Prices here are outstanding, and rarely do my wife and I spend much over $7.00 to feed the two of us very well. Seating is pretty much family style, but there is plenty of room to accommodate the pretty large crowd this place attracts.
