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.

A good selection of bagels, but they also make very good burgers. Prices are quite reasonable. Good notice board, if you're looking for a place to rent.

We came for dinner one night and were pleasantly surprised by the food! the decor and ambiance is very casual and clean. My husband had a burger, I had a salmon salad and our son had a hot dog plus a bowl of fruit and yogurt. All were amazing. I'm particularly raving about my salmon salad though.... holy cr*p, it...

Sit, drink some coffee, eat a sandwich, use the wifi, and strike up a conversation with people from around the world. The music is hip, the atmosphere is modern, and they don't hassle you for sitting and spending some time at one of their many tables or couches. What a lovely place to relax and regroup!

This place is focused on a breakfast menu. During the evening time the food selection is very limited. If you like to eat New York - Montreal style breakfast in Panama you will get a fresh bagel and tons of coffee for average price ( for this section of Panama City ). The place is large and noisy and has... More

Great bagels and coffee. Bottomless mugs of coffee with several brews to choose from. I had the club sandwich on a cheddar bagel - it was glorious. The music is loud, but it is great music (think mowtown throwbacks). Overall, a loud atmosphere, but still a nice place to do computer work. The wifi is good!
