“Very Charming but Pricey For Breakfast”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We visited Olga's For breakfast. Olga was very pleasant and charming and greeted us both with a kiss as we arrived. It is a quaint place tucked away on a side street in the downtown. It is definitely a place you need to try for breakfast. It is pricey for what you get as compared to Sugar & Spice but the breakfast is a little more hearty. It appears to attract a lot of Americans and as with Sugar & Spice this can be a downside because you have to listen to the disgruntled Americans conversations and this can spoil a nice quiet breakfast.

“simply enchanting”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

I love this little breakfast place! Olga is just a real gem, a very warm and welcoming person. Her restaurant is very charming, laid back and cozy. This place has the BEST huevos rancheros on the PLANET. Especially if you get them "con Panamanero" When we are in Boquete we eat there as often as possible to soak up as much of the great food and good vibes as we can. Put this place at the top of your "places to go for breakfast list". English is spoken and you can find her place just behind the Todo a Dollar store which is on Boquete's main street.

“The inside track on breakfast”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Go down a nondescript street, look for a vine covered house with a little sign in front and you are in for the Best Breakfast in Panama. A whiteboard written extensive menu tells you that there is nothing you cannot have. The next few steps bring you closer to Olga, who welcomes you with a warm and sincere hug and kiss on the cheek. That is only the beginning. The food is excellent, Panamanian tortillas, Huevos Rancheros topped with roasted peppers made me come back twice. All the vegetables and fresh fruit come out of Olga's garden. It is an absolute delight!

“overpriced”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

2 eggs, toast , english muffin and coffee. $7.00. I never went back.
Each extra item is almost as much as a meal in itself.

“Personal touch from Olga”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

This place gives off a great vibe--friendly, comfortable, welcoming, satisfying. A few tables under a covered patio, Olga personally overseeing the operation. She's a single mom who has managed to raise her kids and run a wonderful restaurant. Highlights--licaudos and batidos (sic?) huge fruit smoothies and shakes, huevos rancheros with a unique, chunky, fresh tomato based sauce, some of the best, herby home style potatoes any of us have ever had.
