This place is great. The food and coffee are perfectly fine but it is the staff and the low prices that are outstanding.
“The Brim” a Parksville staple is a great place to relax, start your day or end your work day.

beautiful and cozy environment
Consistent food for over fifteen years. Great selection. Must try "Sex In Pan" is a must try, that will bring you back year after year.
Best carrot cake ever, yummy breakfast, great coffee and friendly staff..our go to place when in Parksville.
Great brunch menu and coffee, love that they have oat milk. Must try their "sex in a pan".
Get food and great service.
Great coffee shop in town serving their coffee beans roasted in house with lots of seating inside and a great secluded outdoor patio at the back.Their coffee blends tend to be more of a dark roast. They will brew any espresso beverages which is best enjoyed with any treat from their large selection of pastries and bakeries. More...
Sehr nettes und schönes Café zum Frühstücken. Die Auswahl an Speisen, und vor allem Kuchen, ist auch sehr gut. Wir waren während unseres Aufenthaltes auf Vancouver Island drei mal hier, ich kann diesen Spot nur empfehlen.
Very quaint!..especially the courtyard outside. .nice little place on Craig street
Enjoyed a snack had sex in a pan service was excellent they and looking to hire new staff
Good and gooey cinnamon buns. Kerry didn't like the breakfast sausages, said they were bland like veggie sausages. But I eat veggie sausages at home, he doesn't. Five stars for the buns. Two stars for his sausages. More...
Уютное место, вкусное кофе и сладости. Для завтрака или ланча, самое то.
Amazing breakfast and at a reasonable price.
Had the Sex in the Pan and a London Fog...both were very yummy. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed even though the place was busy. Cute, cozy decor and lovely staff. Thank you Google for the recommendation. More...

A bit slow but great place to socialise.
Good food and coffee, nice atmosphere. Wonderful service when used as caterers. Pricing is average to good for the area and quality.

Good food for a casual lunch and lovely back courtyard. Definetly an older building that could use an update or two, but the friendly staff and nice environment make it a place i would go back to :)
The Pacific Brimm is a quaint, cozy café with a good atmosphere and delicious food. If I may be so bold, I'd say it's a bit TOO cozy; the area is a tight fit for table service, so waitresses had a hard time manoeuvring around the tables and chairs. I guess that's part of the café experience, lol. I really enjoyed the food, it was delicious. I would come here again to try more food. More...
Best breakfast on the island!
Good coffee and snacks. Also serves good breakfasts.
We ate breakfast here on 9/20. It was excellent. It 's hard to ruin breakfast so there is that. But beyond that, generous portion of bacon perfectly cooked, excellent home fried potatoes just the way I like them and perfect cappuccinos!!
Nice coffee shop lots of treats
Love the good price breakfast. Mmmmm
Great food. Great coffee. Great courtyard. And also kid friendly.
Great coffee and drop in.
love my chevy
What a great place!!! We had a small casual wedding here on the patio. Service was great. Food was wonderful. Catering staff made the event planning easy. Will be using them for all my future events. More...
Good Coffee, Nice Atmosphere.
My go-to espresso place in Parksville!
The breakfast burritos, muffins, and coffee are all delicious :)
Lovely place, breakfast and people.
Try the Eggs Benny! Yum.
Quick service and good food coffee is really good too.
Always cosy and the coffee is good!
Always friendly and I love the dark roast coffee! 50 different kinds of tea! Lots of different kinds of drinks (non-alcoholic and alcoholic). Great looking desserts!
Have been coming to PB since I was in middle school - best coffee shop in Parksville hands down! Atmosphere is great, people are so friendly - and the food is delicious! Love the banana walnut bread. Every time I'm back on the island I just HAVE to pop in - haven't found a place that replicates PB on the mainland and doubt I could. More...
They are so lovely
Excellent scone and service. Coffee and pancakes were good.
Nice place to meet up with friends and chat or to have alone time catching up with cyber affairs.
Love, love, love Pacific Brimm! Makes the best soy lattes. There's plenty of room, inside and out, at the front and back of the venue. Food and sweets are tasty. Decor is ecletic and cozy. More...

It's a nice central cafe with reasonable prices
The scones are to die for!
Delightful little dining spot for breakfast. Good coffee. Great breakfast for the price. Had the breakfast fast bowl. potato's red yellow peppers bacon sausage scrambled eggs covered with cheese on top. Delicious
Always a great experience at The Brimm
God food, could be cleaner
Love this place!
Great food and coffee
Loved the food
Teresa and her team catered an event for us and it was simply out-of-this-world. So fun, so professional and the food and price-point was amazing. Thank you so much for an incredible event! Absolutely delicious! More...
Great food, just ok coffee
Coffee and treats are both yummy
good, fresh food. excellent catering
Coffee ok, but have real breakfast options. Eggs, bacon and toast are the most basic. And what I had was Good! Coffee was coconut latte and was a tad bit bitter, might just be the roast, Spirt Bear, which I am not familiar with.
Great coffee and deserts
Friendly staff and atmosphere Always good service ❤️
This is the definition of community coffee shop. Relaxed atmosphere makes it an easy place to hang out. They don't assume I am leaving and give me a to go cup. And they support community initiatives. I recommend the Sex In a Pan More...
Good food, we go here every time we stay in Parksville.
Always a nice quick snack
Amazing service, great prices. Excellent food and coffee. Definitely stop in if you are in Parksville.
Rayn is a Spoiled Brat
Great coffee. Rayn Gryphon (Landon Sealey) sips his coffee here. Check out his youtube videos to watch him sipping coffee at this location.
Excellent food served from Pacific Brimm on the Go food truck.from Parksville. Served 60+ people a very generous variety of delicious finger food - servers were efficient and very pleasant . Would highly recommend .
We recently had Pacific Brimm cater an outdoor rehearsal dinner in the Parksville area. It was really easy to organize, communicate and coordinate with Teresa at Pacific Brimm, especially being from out-of-province. We were given a variety of menu options to choose from, and we were treated to a delicious meal. The food quality and taste well exceeded expectations. Teresa really looked after our meal, bringing tableclothes, cutlery, and plates for our use. Highly Recommended! More...
A calm quite place. Tasty food
Owner & staff are the best in town. Always accommodating. Go out of their way to give the best experience possible & in this day & age they are far & few between. Great portions & prices. Quick service. Keep up the great work. It is a pleasure to see their smiling faces every day! More...
Friendly staff and delicious carrot cake!
My wife and I stopped in one morning last October for breakfast before heading home to the mainland. Had never been to this cafe before. A nice rustic ambience. You order at the counter and the meal is brought to your table. We both ordered sausages and eggs with pan-fries, toast and coffee. This was perhaps the best a la carte breakfast we have ever had while travelling. Priced very reasonably, well-prepared and tasty. It's nice to start the day with an exceptionally good breakfast that fully satisfies. Highly recommended. More...
Great place, good food, friendly staff,people that complain need to look in the kitchen and see how many staff work where you don't see them.
I challenge you to prepare meals for 50 people that show up in a 10 minute window before making unfounded stupid statements. More...
Lunch, Club Sandwich and a Beef Dip. Both very good and house coffee excellent.
The Caramel Matte was amazing! Add an extra shot!
Jim Scott aka Dick Brook
I love this place because their coffee is good, way better than BigBucks or any of those, and the food is good at a good price. Try their breakfast burrito, it'll make you happy. More...

love the food.
This is a review for the Pacific Brimm catering service. Pacific Brimm was hired to bring in their food truck to serve dinner at a backyard wedding reception. We asked them to serve burgers, veggie burgers and baked salmon. First, the food was great. All the guests were pleased (and full). Seriously tasty burgers. Second, the catering truck showed up on time and the staff was ready to help out. Third, in the couple hours prior to their having to prep dinner, they helped act as bartender. Dinner was on time and went off without a hitch. What was nice is we did the service as a 'come and get it' format where guests just had to line up whenever they wanted to collect their meal. We didn't have to do any coordination with getting everyone seated all at once. There were quite a few kids at the event and this format worked out marvelously because people could choose when to eat. They provided the plates, eating utensils, and all the condiments.The staff was friendly and the wife and I were most pleased with the quality of the meal and the trouble-free service. More...
Excellent service and food! Beautiful coffee
Great food and great service. We also use them to cater our events.
Best coffee in town! Our mornings don't start until we've had our PB coffee when we visit!
Good coffee and treats. Great sandwichs. Service can be slow
Good service, good food. Better service that the Parksville Starbucks, for sure.
the staff an owner are awsome, there food an drinks are the best in town
Great coffee shop in the heart of Parksville. Friendly atmosphere and good range of food, especially breakfasts. Great coffee. Also has a selection of games in a room out the back. More...
I think this might be my favorite coffee shop ever. It looks abit quiet and unassuming from the outside but once you walk in you feel immediately the care and attention to the space and the customers. Great spot for quiet chats with girlfriends or just to sit and enjoy a book with a great snack or meal. Don't forget to check out the private back patio. Loved everything about this place. More...
Just went here again after passing through Parksuille in the fall of last year. New owners, but still the same great atmosphere and decor. We shared a scone and thoroughly enjoyed it, together with our drinks More...
Fantastic food, service and best of all coffee. I can't say enough about the friendly, and VERY accommodating staff. Will pop in again, and recommend!
Having recently begun work in Parksville, I knew that I would need to scout out the area restaurants as I am categorically incapable of remembering to bring my pre-packed lunch. I'll make it the night before, put it in a brown bag, leave a sprig of parsley on the top, write notes to myself in my mirror, hire telemarketers to call me before I leave to ask if I've gotten it... and by the time noon rolls around, I reach for my veggie chili / tuna sandwich / steak-frites and ... realize I'm once again somewhat incompetent with respect to remembering my lunch.Ergo.I went to Pacific Brimm in my first week and haven't looked back since. While I'm not a coffee drinker - making my review of limited use for those who need caffeine IV drips - I can recommend it highly for lunch. Their club sandwich, at $9.25, uses non-deli-meat chicken, and their grilled vegetable panini is incredibly flavorful and cooked hot through every time.I visit at least once a week, and usually twice, and have yet to be disappointed. Lovely tables outside for when it's sunny, a cozy interior with a variety of seating arrangements, and friendly staff.No doubts, this place is Brimm-ing with good cheer. More...
