Mon Petit Cafe, El Valle Panama

Mon Petit is a darling cafe on the right side of the road just as you enter El Valle.  Owned by a kind Frenchman named Sebastian Mon Petit Cafe in El Valle, Panamawho now calls El Valle his home.  Mon Petit has a great menu of quiche, tarts, salads, crepes and breads.  I had worked up an appetite meandering around El Nispero Zoo all morning so I ordered the Classico Crepe.  A light crepe loaded with two eggs, ham, two kinds of cheese and parsley with a side of seeded bread and coffee was just what I needed to refuel.  It was phenomenal.

Mon Petit is located inside the Hotel Pekin Plaza.  It’s decorated with local art.  My favorite were the renderings of the “Diablo Rojo’s” you find throughout Panama City.  All art is available for purchase.  The cafe has a wireless connection and is very cool.  Sebastian prepared the food himself and was a very kind host.  He speaks French, English and Spanish.

I’m not sure what I loved more; His dreamy french accent or his crepes…

Bon Apetit!
