Family was in town and they wanted to try this place. I wasn't overly impressed with their selection for breakfast. Too many fancy options and not enough basic.

If you ever visit Kingston, you HAVE to go here. The front is a bakery that also sells fresh bread of all kinds, as well as lovely jams and preserves. The back is a restaurant and there is always a lineup because of how good and popular it is. Whether you want a light or healthy breakfast, or a meal... More

I've been to Kingston a few times; my daughters attended Queens University. For some reason Pan Chancho escaped my attention. I cannot imagine how that happened however it did until yesterday. For those who have heard of Chez Piggy (another amazing restaurant to visit); Pan Chancho is owned and operated by the same owners. Brunch was the object of our... More

Pan Chancho is located on Princess Street Kingston. It is related to Chez Piggy, a well-known Kingston restaurant. It has a smallish area for dining in, does catering and also sells a variety of deli items, desserts, bread, and other high-end grocery items. It is a popular place. I went there with family just after Christmas for breakfast, which is... More
