I have seen good review about breakfast in this place, when we arrived Parksville, it was 11am. When we saw the lunch menu, we thought, why not, so we asked if we could order the hamburger, the cashier had to check with the kitchen, the...answer was that, they could make the burger, but no fires, we could have salad - even better! My wife had the soup and sandwich - club house sandwich.
The coffee came first, it was a really nice cup of coffee, that setup our high hope.
Then came the food! The burger was terrible, the beef was tough, dry, chewy, and tasteless; I don't understand at all, how could minced beef be like that?!
My wife was ok with her club house sandwich though. The chicken was moist and tender!
We should have ordered from the breakfast menu instead.
Staffs were friendly and helpful.More
My husband and I were visiting Parksville and were looking for a coffee shop that was locally owned instead of part of a chain. We found The Pacific Brimm. The mochas are decent, the English Breakfast tea is very nice and the cinnamon buns look...amazing. They have three tables outside, in front of the cafe, and a great garden patio at the back with a lot more tables. It's like a little oasis. In the Fall, they host open mics every Friday evening. The staff are pleasant. A nice place to have a break.More
Perhaps it was the lunch time rush, perhaps the staff were rushed, food was just about okay. Staff were definitely surly with an elderly couple who were waiting 30 minutes for their order. Tourist town, the staff know it, we won't be back and they...don't care.More
Had the breakfast bowl the peppers and onions needed a little more cooking they were very raw , toast was overloaded with butter unable to eat it .
Place is very clean and welcoming would go again hopefully this was just a one off day
The service was fantastic and the food even better! We had breakfast there and the food was cooked to perfection! We are planning on going back because of the atmosphere and the food. The girl at the counter was so sweet, which helped to make...the 1st day of our mini vacay even better. My daughter recommended it and she made a great choice. Thank you, for making the start of our days off great!More
Tasty food, nice atmosphere, good prices. Don't go when it's raining, it's better to sit outside because the café is a bit cramped and tables aren't being sanitized between customers outside is a safer bet.
Not sure if our meal was heavily influenced by COVID-19, none of our dishes (French toast, pancake, benny and breakfast bowl) had fruits. Very brown and simple flavour. The outdoor setting was very nice. I recommend this place for an morning/afternoon coffee with baked goods,...not for breakfast.More
We had the best eggs benny & pancakes at this cute cafe that we had to return the following day to do it all over again. The home-fried potatoes alone were worth the trip - never mind the mochas! What a beautiful little spot with...high quality food & coffee. We were sad to leave Parksville but we bought a variety of dessert bars to remember our lovely meals at Pacific Brimm!More
