Burger for lunch were just ok. Breakfast was nice, about the same you get everywhere in Panama but the coffee is really good and if you are Lucky there are fresh croissants. Friendly service. English menu.

My favorite breakfast place in Santa Catalina. La Buena Vida across the street is also good. Pancake was very satisfying. One is enough for most appetites as it is very thick. Would prefer to get more butter but I don't think that was common in...More
