The fried rice was a huge portion. The prices are really reasonable! Many locals eat here. Interior was easy, not fancy.

Cafe Coca Cola is one of the oldest standing buildings in Panama since 1875. The food is amazing and super affordable. I had bistec and tostones and my bill was 9 bucks. You can't beat that. Highly recommended.
