It’s got a diner feel, very popular with the locals. Most meals are between 6-10 dollars but the portions are justifiable and I would particularly suggest any of the fish dishes. We didn’t have to wait particularly long for the food even as a group...More

Came hear for breakfast. Was looking for something light in this crazy Panamanian heat. Husband had hot ham and cheese sandwich with coffee and I had toast and fried eggs with a capuchino. It was very tasty! Fast service and the AC was kicking. I...More

The food is good and cheap, size of the meals is big. But whats better about this place is the atmosphere - it feels really caribbean, the style, the people going there. Its an experience!

This is the first restaurant in Casco ... world leaders have had meetings there ... from Che Guevara, Fidel Castro and many others ... the food is kind of a cafe / diner

This cafe has been around since the late 1800's. In 1906 it began serving Coca Cola - the only place south of the US to serve it, thus the name. It is a blue-collar, local restaurant with curt waitress's and basic food. Worth the price...More
