Location: Avenida Central Boquete
Hours: Thursday – Tuesday 8am – 6pm
Short Description of the food: Sugar and Spice is without question the best bakery in Boquete. In addition to bread and pastries, they also serve a light menu of sandwiches and soup. Since they use their own bread they have a hands down advantage on all their sandwiches. We went after the Tuesday morning meeting and discovered a parade of familiar faces coming in for lunch. Mayra ordered soup and I tried a chicken sandwich.
The food was very good, my sandwich as good as I have had outside my own house in Boquete.
Ambiance: It’s a bakery and you can see the baking in progress as Richard works the dough. The rest of the staff is properly equipped for food service. There are three tables inside and two outside. We choose inside to avoid the noise of the continuous traffic. This not posh, it is comfortable and very much a lunch atmosphere.
Price: Prices are reasonable, my sandwich was $3, that makes it competitive with the now non-existent Subway for far better food.
Bathrooms: There is one bathroom which is in the back which is clean and has all the essentials including a real towel for drying your hands.
Kitchen Cleanliness: The kitchen is right in front of you and I watched chicken being torn from the bone to make sandwiches and others going into the oven. Nothing is hidden and everything is clean.
Service: This is counter service and we were served in about five minutes.
Jubilado Discount: I never asked
Summary: I have been buying bread from Richard as long as he has been open and I will keep doing so. THis was the first time we ate in the restaurant and next time I am craving a good sandwich in Boquete I will be back. (BoqueteGuide)
