We ate here twice and i love the place and the food: wholegrain bagels (wen you are in time) and pineapple juice (when you are in time). Service might be somewhat iffy but you can kill time with the free Internet haha.

New York bagels are excellent and there is the largest assortment in Panama. They have great breakfast dishes, even a lox bagel sandwich with a side of thick bacon. The lunch selections are big and tasty. Great coffee, endless refills. If you have a problem with your Apple product, here is the place all the experts hang out. I cannot... More

It does have a comfortable feel to it, with wifi and music which I thought was fine (including the Mongolian throat-singing). I enjoyed my club bagel, when it arrived, about 30 minutes after ordering, reasonably priced. I know many people appreciate this cafe, but we found that the service was not up to par, needs some shoring up if they... More

Is a great place to meet global travelers. Lots of Spanish students here from the school. Bagels was a great idea and owner Jon from NY started that 6 years ago.

I have to say, I really enjoy the food here! Visited this place a few times and it has yet to disappoint. Their breakfast burrito was delicious and easily as good (if not better) than anything found in the US. The bagels are very good and the staff is generous with the plain cream cheese. The bagel sandwich with egg... More

In many travellers blogs I've read that New York Bagel is a good place to meet other ex pats. While we saw not one, we were happy with the food, although not an inexpensive as we were hoping. Food prices are much the same as any North American city. The quality was good, I recommend the Huevos Rancheros - YUM!... More

Pancake, Bacon, Burgers, and of course bagels. Especially liked the Taco Salad (difficult to find fresh vegetables in the tropics) and the Chicken Burrito. Free wifi to catch up on work and emails.
