I really love to help travelers on their quest of traveling. But this time, and becouse of the ocassion this segment is also for the administration of Trip Advisor. Ive notice that the rigid format of this page dont allow the writer to exchange a quick opinion of the present. For example Te Cafe has being closed for more than... More

Had visited this restaurant several times (well over 6 times) and had tried different dishes, every time had enjoyed both food and service or service and food. One of those places where I can genuinely sit and enjoy eating good, have good coffee, relax and talk with friends. Had recommended it to friends who had also visited several times and... More

We had a bad experience with food in this place, service is attentive and is good but food is not good at all. Chicken with red sauce sandwich, chicken was overcooked and super dry barely put any sauce in it, we had to ask for more sauce. This is the Italian parmesan version of it. My chicken sandwich was just... More

This place offers the best tea selections at reasonable prices. Coffee is really good as well. Best ice coffee in Panamá and consistent every time I come. I tell all my friends when they visit panama. New menú selection is superb. Do try the veggie sandwich and hands down the hummus salad is out of this world. The 3 cheese... More

It's not a secret that most cafes in Panama have really bad coffee. After being disappointed by the bad coffee served in most cafes in Panama, I was very happy to discover Tecafe. They actually care about their beans, roast and preparation. Their coffee menu looks more like a wine menu with details of the notes and aromas of each... More

As the name of the place, it has an array of coffees and teas to select. It has a very casual ambiance, a Starbucks look (kind of...). The service is good, but just that (don´t expect the waiters to really wait on you....). It has a limited menu with a good variety of salads and sandwiches, so for a light... More

Tecafe is a nice place to enjoy tea or coffee including nice desserts. It has a nice ambiance and it is cozy as well. Overall nice experience. Only downfall was the limited parking.

Great little cafe that makes a variety of drinks and sandwiches. Friendly staff, great for a stop on a warm afternoon for a snack and an iced coffee. On busy Via Israel so not the most relaxing atmosphere.

A nice place, good food, very nice manager who sadly cannot motivate her waiters or does not want too. But the waiters have cero interest, do not know the product they serve and do not at all have any interest to give you a pleasant service. Hopefully they can train the waiters to start to like the product they sell... More
