It is hard to find authentic Bagels and Deli food in Panama. This is it. The Bagels are Great and the selection different cream cheese flavors was impressive. My favorite everything bagel with Lox was perfectly prepared. Coffee was affordable and a selection of 10 different blends with a bottomless Cup!

This is my place to visit any time of the day. Food is good and I love breakfast. Nice outdoor seating along with plenty of seating inside. Employees are super nice and helpful.

Great when you are traveling to get free wifi, but it does mean that everyone has there Jose in there screen shovelling food in absentmindedly. A pity because the food is good. I had the Carlitos way salmon salad which was huge. $10:25 including a bottle of water. They have a wide selection of breads and toppings.

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
