Cafe Coca Cola is one of the oldest standing buildings in Panama since 1875. The food is amazing and super affordable. I had bistec and tostones and my bill was 9 bucks. You can't beat that. Highly recommended.

We ended up going here twice, one for breakfast and again for dinner. Good honest food, well priced and the dinner portions are massive. Would highly recommend it

When traveling around the world, we are always searching for where the locals are eating. Imagine finding an old school diner located in Old Town Panama City that has been serving up traditional meals since 1875. Famous diners include Teddy Roosevelt to Fidel Castro to...More
