Boquete’s Sugar and Spice
Why We Went: Sugar and Spice is one of the busiest restaurants in Boquete, Panama; and my husband’s favorite for breakfast. We often frequent it in the mornings and take home at least one loaf of the delicious bread a week.
What We Had: Chicken Chilaquiles and the Ultimate Breakfast Burrito on one visit, Ultimate Santa Fe Ranchero and Denver Omelet on another.
Something Special: Your choice of either tea or coffee comes with most breakfasts. I love that the waiter brings over the box of tea bags for you to select the kind you want. Then comes your teapot and all the tea necessities.
Noteworthy: Sugar and Spice has many take-home items including a wide variety of muffins and pastries, loaves of bread, desserts, quiche, soups, and sandwiches. The prices are reasonable.
Best Part of the Meal: After ordering at Sugar and Spice’s counter, chose a seat and the wait staff will deliver your meal to you. Servers are highly attentive and clear tables immediately after someone leaves to keep the restaurant clean and tables available. To say their service exceeds typical Boquete standards would be accurate.
Bonus: Sugar & Spice has free Wi-Fi!
Impressive to Me: The owner of Sugar and Spice sets a great example, working side by side with his staff, and most every time I have been in the restaurant. He has a friendly personality and displays a great work ethic. Plus, Sugar and Spice sometimes plays country music.
What Needs Improvement: For me, the breakfast dishes need more flavor. I understand that Sugar and Spice cater more toward the Panamanian crowd, which does not prefer much spice or bold flavors, but I do. They also need more sauce on the breakfast burritos as they are sometimes a little on the dry side.
Total Check Before Tip: $16 for 2 breakfasts and a loaf of Country French bread to take home.
