Good food, great value, cool place

For the money I thought the food was great. The place is not up market but has a slightly 'student' charm and a nice vibe for eating, hanging out and using their (free) internet. Staff pretty friendly and helpful. Menu in English. We discovered it on our last day in Panama otherwise would... read more

Great place to go for lunch with their wide variety of food selections, also a great place to have a meeting or catch up on work.

Lots of different flavors of bagels to choose from, although they tend to run out of the more popular flavors in the afternoon, so go early. Coffee options available too, free wifi, and located in a fun neighborhood.

Came here for breakfast several times on my visit to Panama City. There was a wide choice of fresh bagels (I recommend the cinnamon sugar bagel with cream cheese) and the house coffee (unlimited top ups) had about 6 blends to choose from. The 4 I tried were nice. The coffee made by staff from the coffee machine behind the... More

I wish that I had tried here earlier. Tasty bagels, free refills on coffee, good wifi. I love it. The only down is the early closing - 8 pm.

This bagel restaurant is always serving up fresh and delicious bagels. The menu satisfies your cravings for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner with bottomless coffee and a cozy atmosphere. The restaurant gets packed on the weekends in the morning with both locals and tourists. Free wifi is always available. Some staff speak English.

The cafe has a great lay out and a great environment, even play some good music. The internet is fast and the food is decent. Service is minimum. I never get a smile and you don't go for the service. The internet and the food make it worth going though. You even have an outside terrace and a couple of... More

I love to come here to have the breakfast platters. You get so much food! My favorites are the Pancake Platter (2 big pancakes, 2 eggs your way, 2 ham, bacon or sausage) and the Challah French Toast Platter (same as above except with 4 small french toasts). DELICIOUS! Their house coffee varieties are so good (I like the amaretto... More

If you need to hang out for a long time at a cafe type place, this is where to go. Couldn't find a place like it. It's a bit dark and drab inside though. Free refills on soda is awesome, but bagel was just ok.. nothing special but a good option with all the bad choices around it.

Great service. Great energy. A good place to just hang out and enjoy coffee, good conversation (if you like) and good, affordable food. Bring you computer, surf the web or just sit back and relax. I love this place.
