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...

Ssalmon entree delicious and good size Desert very good and well presented. Servuce wax excellent, thanks Sica and crew. Don't know what normal prices are but value seemed very good... More

We redeemed a coupon we bought via Groupon for a 3 course meal for two for $65. It is not the regular menu but instead, is the one they have prepared especially for the Groupon deal. Some good choices on it, no matter your diet preferences. The food was very good, well presented and delicious. I had the lamb as... More

We were at the same buffet at the same time as the last reviewer! I am certain of this because the first picture is us! Thanks for the family photo. We mostly took pictures of the food. While we enjoyed the traditional breakfast offering it was the dim sum and sushi that we were excited about. It was a very... More

We experienced this Sunday brunch buffet with two friends during the Christmas season. The meal was an absolute delight. This brunch buffet is served from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM; I recommend that you arrive early. This is not a recommendation based on a limitation of the food offering it is a suggestion made as you'll want to make this... More

After 3 VERY disappointing breakfast buffet meals at Oru, we came here on our final morning in Vancouver to switch it up and had an excellent experience. Our server was Natalia, who was on point throughout the entire meal, giving us both great service and all kinds of informational goodies about the City and the Region. The waffles were excellent,...

we attended the Cafe Pacifica for brunch on Sunday 5th September, which happened to be the Chinese Moon Festival. The staff could not have been more attentive, right from the phone booking to the receptionist and serving staff the whole time we were there.
