“Not more than coffee....it could be a lot better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

The problem with this place is unfortunately the attitude of the staff, so the owner has to be blamed for lack of training or care, the women do not know more than what they do, and that is barely enough....but, there are not very many places to have a decent cup of coffee, and Panama has excellent coffee, at least the surroundings are very pleasant and fresh.

Nice, comfortable setting with outdoor seating. If you are staying at El Valle de Anton, its a nice place to purchase gormet snacks. Great coffee.

“A Latin Starbucks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

Is a nice place to drink a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and try one very tasty piece of cake. No lunches and not much to choose from. But the cakes are truly tasty.

“Take a break in the Gazebo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

This small coffee shop off the main road, is easy to miss. They have a very tight parking lot. The coffee was good, great selection of treats and snacks including baked goods. We shared a piece of loaf cake that was very flavorful and moist. The staff was not service oriented but not rude either. This tiny shop can quickly become crowded. There is outdoor seating in the back of the shop or on the side a bit away from the road, both spots a plesant . It was a good stop enjoyable even in a light rain on a hot day.

“Get Starbucks management in!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

A nice little coffee shop, jst on the way in (left) or out (right) of the village, not really worth a stop, but then again, Panama is known for coffee, but there ain't many (if any)coffee stops/shops around here.
Good venue for an experienced or retired barista, the girls here do not seem to have that much interest...very pleasant surroundings outside to drink what you have, watch the birds and buses go by, definately different, but as said, staff very indifferent!
Various other ( imported ) products , premium prices, but no place else to buy them here..! So, as said, ok,but could be a loot better!!
