The menu is extensive, the coffee great and Olga hugged us like we were family although this was our first visit. The portions are large. I had a cheese, tomato and spinach omelet made especially for me to avoid gluten in the kitchen. I'm not certain about the Panamanian tortillas. Although they are made from corn I was not able...

We really enjoyed the food. There was only one server so the service was very slow but worth the wait. Really enjoyed the food.

What a find, sadly our last day in Boquete. Great little place on aside street behind the Dollar Store! Recommended by our host, and it was a wonderful find. The Latte was not only great to drink but a visual delight! The omelet was perfect, the potatoes superb AND fresh flower on the plate to make me feel really special!... More

I visited Olga for breakfast, though she was unfortunately not there. The huevos rancheros was the best I've ever had. I ordered the Panamanian corn tortillas as the base. It's a huge portion. The young woman serving tables was very kind and even warned me that I was ordering too much food when I wanted to also order a pancake.... More

Olga will always greet you and you will not be disappointed by her excellent menu for breakfasts. I have had eggs served a variety of ways in the past and was always happy with my choice.

Delicious Breakfast. A little hard to find but if you look at the map on tripadvisor and know it is set back from the street you will find it no problem. The kitchen is a bit on the slow time, partly because this is a popular spot. Delicious coffee and attentive waitress. I had the Mexican style Huevos Rancheros. So... More

This restaurant, also known as Olga's, is owned and operated by a native Boquetian. Olga warmly greeted us upon our arrival even giving my daughter a kiss on the forehead. We ate two breakfasts there and each of us ooh'd and aww'd about how wonderful all the dishes were. The huevos rancheros were hands down, the best I've ever tasted.... More

We had breakfast here on our last day in Boquete. This appears to be a small family run place. The staff was so lovely and showed us the typical Latin America hospitality with a hug and kiss as soon as we walked in. The portions were generous and the omelettes were absolutely delicious. We also had one of the best... More

Olga greets you by saying "Hola Mi Amor", and a kiss of the forehead or cheek. I believe this is a home that they turned into a kitchen and restaurant. The food comes out slow (very common in Panama), but it is well worth the wait. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros with a Panamanian Tortilla (a plantain that has been... More
