A pretty basic no frills cafe. Not. bad if you are just wanting a simple menu and nothing different. Wellington is full of amazing cafes and this just was to 'nothing special ' for me. For the same prices as other cafes, I would go somewhere else next time.

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!

This cafe has changed hands relatively recently and the new owners and their staff have made some great changes. The decor is more welcoming, and the cafe is always warm and not noisy. The service is also warm and efficient. The counter food is pretty standard in terms of variety, but the quality (particularly of savoury items - the sausage... More

The cooked brunch we had in this place was outstanding value for money. It wasn't terribly sophisticated but was by far the best value for money brunch we have eaten in Wellington.

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.
