Breakfast at the Pan

Too late for the buffet, but good breakfast, nicely served, very pleasant surroundings, and compared to other hotel breakfast, prices reasonable.

We stopped by for breakfast after our cruise. The food was good. It was really expensive. But they held our bags for us while we ate, which was awesome, and their bathrooms were really nice. So overall, it was a great experience. I just wish the food had been a little better for the price.

Included the breakfast buffet in the sleeping room booking at a discount from the walk in price. Excellent buffet, international selections, very attentive servers, all servers helping each other out, very good experience both from a service standpoint and great food.

Café Pacifica is located in the Pan Pacific Hotel and they do up a magnificent Sunday brunch. As my daughter's birthday fell on a Sunday, I decided to splurge ($52/person) and start our day here. The offerings of sushi, crab legs, shrimp, alongside fruit platters was just to start. There are 6-7 hot offerings from sausage/bacon, Eggs benedict, roasted potatoes,... More

Staying at the Pan-Pacific Vancouver I tried to get breakfast at the hotel restaurant Cafe Pacifica. We got off to a poor start as my server informed me that there would be no Buffet available as there weren't enough guests (hmmm I wonder why . . . . ?) apparently no one had considered doing a smaller buffet, rather just...
