Occasionally I stop to buy the coffee. One of few places that still 1 lbs bags of coffee, not 12, 13. ozs. Take the time to look at a lot of Panama history and live of Dr. Arias, founder of Princes Janca

Coffe was good. Prices are average $1-$5 you can buy a bag of coffee too. What I didn't like....they had things on the menu that they didn't have.

This is on a coffee plantation...the coffee is outstanding...they also serve some bake goodies to with a cuppa. You will probably take a bag or 2 of this Princesa Janca coffee along with you.

If you are uphill from Boquete towards Palo Alto stop into this famed producers coffee and souvenir shop...you won't be disappointed. The area outside of the grounds offers a very pleasant stroll...they serve an awesome coffee and best of all you can grab take home bags for $6.50 a pound...throw them in your carry on for home!

The place is ok, just a small cafeteria to have a cofee before hitting the road. Nothing special. You can buy souvenirs like mugs and t-shirts.

First of all, Cafeteria Princesa Janca is not a restaurant. It's the coffee shop for the Princesa Janca finca, located on Ave. Buenos Aires near Palo Alto (close to Il Pianista). We stopped by as we were walking the Ave. Buenos Aires loop and were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. They serve a very limited menu - various... More
