Bagels!

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... read 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.

What a awesome find. We are staying at the Hotel Principe, which doesn’t have a breakfast or coffee. So we have really enjoyed this place in the morning. They have a complete menu for breakfast and lunch, in addition to bagels. We’ve had the pancakes, and a omelet which includes a bagel and potatoes, actually enough for two to share.... More

A restaurant that is clearly popular among the expats..seats quite a few patrons but on a Sunday am was quite full and we had to wait about 5 minutes for a table to become free. Sunday not a good day for their bagel which was not fresh as their bagel kitchen was closed on Sunday's. Smoothie was excellent as well... More
