Excellent coffee & breakfast

Conveniently located at Plaza Einstein in Panama Centro, this is one of the few bagel places in town that makes a Montreal style bagel - well almost, and serves great café con leche & an excellent breakfast. Wholesome, tasty & reasonable + service with a smile & wifi. You'll enjoy it!

A reasonable place for good New York style bagels. Sandwiches are available and reasonable. Service is slow and the level of English comprehension poor.

If you are looking for bagels in Panama this would be the place. There are lots of options of bagels, cream cheeses and other options. Inside the aircon is full on so I recommend to sit on the terrace

This place has the feel of an American coffee shop and bakery. They serve good food and unlimited cups of coffee. It is a place where you'll find the many college age students working on the free WiFi and chatting in small groups. If you find yourself on Via Argentina you should definitely check it out. Just around the corner... More

Bagels are very good - I am a snob with food and was happy. They have nice tasting cream cheese. Facility was clean and service pleasant.
