Wanted an alternative the the dreadful breakfast at the Best Western several blocks away. Actually on site bagels. The breakfast were large servings and the salami and eggs were delish.

I have given a review in the past and believe it is necessary to provide an update. Service has improved except for some women who still aren't too social. Internet has improved as it had been having some issues. I meet with a client 3 times a week in this location and we haven't been interrupted so far. I do... More

This expat hangout off of Via Argentina across from Einstein's Head is very popular, with long lines at lunch time. The bagels are made on the premises and the burgers and sandwiches are excellent. The service is friendly, although somewhat erratic. Free WiFi encourages people to bring their computers and get work done while sipping the bottomless cups of house... More

An eclectic crowd of expats (freelancers, retirees, wanted by the law, etc) and locals... great vibe. You will over hear business conversations, debates over bands, people planning an evening/weekend... The music a bit loud and the lounge couches are long gone (I have been coming here for years). I highly recommend the Mexican Breakfast Burrito with sausage or any of... More

Freelancers, bloggers, photographers, expats, students... You will find them all at New York Bagel. The generous food portions, free Wi-Fi, bottomless coffee mugs make it the perfect place to get in a productive afternoon worth of work. The All Day Breakfast menu is my favorite - especially the Challah french toast. The bagels are also delicious (try with the sundried... More

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.
