6:30 am til 20:30. Excellent place for your daily breakfast/ lunch. I don't think youll find a better cafe in this city. They have more than pastries, so look at all the chalkboard menus for eggs, sandwiches, etc.

My 2 friends and I stayed a couple blocks down the road at The Saba Hotel (nice place!) and found this little place on a walk. It became our morning ritual to go here for cappuccinos and something to eat. You can smell the freshly baked breads and goodies before you even get in the door!!! I would order our... More

We had calzones that were very tasty. We ordered garlic bread (the special bake upon order at least one day in advance) for a dinner party we were hosting later in the week. The bread was very good as well. Prices are very reasonable. We will go back to try their pizza.

This is located about one block off of Via Espana down Via Argentina. I was in Panama City for two weeks. Free WiFi and cool air. This is a great place to start your morning with bread, pastries or hot waffles and coffee. I liked the pan de leche. They also sell canned soft drinks and some fruit like pineapples.... More

The first few times we went here things were fresh and good. These last few times pastries have all seemed to be day(s) old !!!! Sorry to see this decline.

The bakery offers fresh breads & baked goods daily. Prices seem to be very reasonable. But it's a small space with only a couple tables.

The ambiance is very pleasant and the staff very accommodating. The baked goods are outstanding. The soup/s a real treat. I stayed at a hotel just down the street for 6 days and stopped by here at least 6 times.

This is a good place to come in the mornings as the service is fast enough and the coffee is good and actually pretty cheap for this city. A coffee and sweet pastry and newspaper costs $2.15. This is on Via Argentina, the coffe shop, restaurant and hotel district of panama

If you happen to stroll along via Argentina in Panama city, you come across the small bakery that serves a tasty, small delight, pies and doughnut type things. We were there for desserts and coffee only. The ambiance is very nice... relaxed, local type. Elderly people sitting around, reading newspapers, submerged in their own thoughts and lives... The prices are... More
