“Cute gifts”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

We bought some cute ecological-recycled type gifts for family back home here - this made a change from all the typical mola' and soapstone souvneirs.The owners were helpful and friendly.

“Don't expect it to be open before 9 AM”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Great little place with an refreshing outdoor seating area. We really enjoyed the mocha frapp but we had to wait 30 minutes for the place to open! You'd think a coffee shop would be open by 8AM at the latest but Nope!! 9AM only.

Worth a stop for a quick drink/snack.

“Dessert Alternative!”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Restaurant is very easy to find off the main road into El Valle - exactly across from the Farmacia as stated on TripAdvisor - that was a great landmark to look for, since it's big.

We were looking for some ice cream or a cold treat for a hot Panamanian afternoon, and we were thrilled with the cold drink selection at El Valle Gourmet. If you like Frappe coffee drinks, they have a variety (maybe 8?) of different flavors. I had the "Coffee Toffee" and it was yummy - $3.50 for 16 oz. For the non-coffee drinker, a decent variety of fruit smoothies are offered - $3.25 for 16 oz. There is a small freezer case of Haagen Daaz ice cream - my kids liked choosing an ice cream bar - typical HD prices of about $2.50 a piece. As mentioned in other posts, a few "pastry" type items are also for sale at the counter. There are NO sandwiches sold, so don't consider this a lunch stop.

We were glad we stopped and enjoyed our treats on the patio out back - quite a few benches as a seating area that are all placed in the shade of many trees. Everything was very clean and service was prompt and courteous.

“Nice Retreat for a Treat”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

This place offers great coffee drinks and some desserts. It was upscale for the area and has nice seating in the back. It also has lots of reclying bins--we took our plastic water bottles there to throw them away.
