Since I first dined in here last year, the staff have built a wonderful rapport with me. They provide excellent service and their food are to die for - especially their breakfast wraps! I love this cafe so much. Keep up with the great work guys!

Panama cafe serves good coffee at the best price in town, and if your needing a breakfast made for champoins this is the place to go, really good breakfast menu and very good prices, they're treats- biscutits, fudge etc by far the best price in town, with friendly staff and quick service, can't fault them.
