I stop by when downtown and buy more than I intended because everything looks and tastes so good. The breads are amazing. Worth the trip !

Great lunch spot, very busy. Excellent mix of ingredients in a sweet and salty beet salad, would have enjoyed the salad more with double the amount of beets. My dining companion enjoyed his black bean ranchero eggs. The desserts were excellent from the bakery. Eat in or make your own lunch picnic from a wide selection of bakery and gourmet... More

Established in 1994, the bright, fragrant, always busy, Pan Chanco Bakery turns out a large range of baguettes, loaves, muffins, scones, along with many other carb-olicious treats, a good number of which are gluten-free ... This very pleasant cafe always seems to do a brisk business during morning breakfast hours through lunch, with things you will truly enjoy such as... More

Food ingredients are of the highest quality. It's a bit pricey but all of the food is excellent. The breads are not as good as they were when Pan Chancho first opened it's doors in their present Princess Street location but it's still better than the bread you buy in a grocery store!

Dined here with my sister at lunch. Everything was perfect! I have been here too many times to count, and each visit is better than the last. Have the frites and aioli - you will want more!

We always go to Pan Chancho when we are in Ktown. Casual atmosphere and great food and service. Their menu is varied, inventive and delicious. I had the curried eggs (yummy!) and my companions raved about the stuffed French toast and breakfast hash. I picked up some baked goods for later in the day and loved the GF cheddar scone... More

Appealing to couples, older families, and mums with push chairs, Pan Chancho at lunchtime accommodates all tastes from local meat burgers, stew with crispy pastry top, salads with nuts, seeds and fresh fruits. The lunch room upstairs is light filled with warm brick tones.

I absolutely love Pan Chancho, I stop in here at least once a month as a 'treat yo self' I love the pastries - they are a little bit pricy for a student budget but not overly out of the question. I can never get enough!
