This place is unique in Panama City. The Breakfast they offer are simple unique and fantastic. Also the burgers are very good, one of my favorites is the BLT with a baguette bread instead of Bagel, you can order in a Bagel. They have his own bakery and they produce Bagels Daily very fresh and tasty. Or also if you... More

We ate here many times and made use of the spacious setup, wifi and bottomless coffees. The lox and cream cheese bagels were the best!

Everyone enjoyed the food. One small suggestion would be to add a non pork breakfast meat. I would have paid more for that option.

We walked from our hotel up to El Cangrejo, about 15 minutes from the Occidental. HAD to have NY bagels and cream cheese which are few and far between in Panama! It was everything I hoped for and more. Eat 'em there, take some home:)

This is our favorite breakfast spot in all of Panama City. The fresh-baked bagels come in every possible variety and with all the trimmings and additions. The self-serve coffee is free-flowing. Wifi, too. We take a few dozen bagels on the plane ride home, too, as they freeze perfectly.

Great value for money. An omelette loaded with ham cheese and veggies, choice of bagel and side order of home-fries came to $7.50. The food was freshly cooked and made to order. Funky music playing and lots of people chilling out with their laptops enjoying a coffee. The decor was a bit off putting though, had a cafeteria feel to... More

We really enjoy New York bagel. It is a touch of old time diner food and starbucks. We enjoyed breakfast. The servings are huge. It may be best to share a meal. The bagels are the closest to the real deal in Panama. The restaurant is large with free wifi. The coffee is self serve and pentiful.

New York Bagel has achieved the perfect bagel to cream cheese ratio especially for being out of the USA and NYC. A great spot to study, to write, to meet with friends, to take kids, and to kill a time in an air conditioned haven with good vibes. I can't wait to return to get my bagel fix!

My morning stop before Spanish class. Breakfast, coffee and plenty of open tables. Staff was very helpful and attentive. Will visit again.
