We had a delightful and unexpected surprise yesterday. We decided to take the day off and explore some of Boquete I hadn’t seen. We ran into Steve and Donna who were talking about their new restaurant, so we decided to check it out on our way home. We were really impressed! The restaurant is called the Cacao Cafe and their website is here. Check it out for a bit of information about Mayan food, the specialty of this restaurant.
We rarely eat out. We make great food at home so it usually isn’t worth it. This wasn’t the case last night though. The food was excellent, inexpensive, and a bit different than our usual fare.
We were the last people there and it was dark when we left. As we got into the car I turned around and saw this pretty scene.
The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Donna told us that many people come just for the coffee since it is so good. Other friends told us that the breakfast is excellent and a very good value for $5. These are photos of their menu (taken from their website)
I think these people deserve to succeed so if you are in Boquete, stop by and see if you like them as much as we did.
