“Sadly, have to give this place a miss from now on”
Review of Gold Pan Cafe

Gold Pan Cafe
Ranked #5 of 5 Restaurants in Rock Creek

Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2015

For years I frequently stopped at this restaurant for breakfast on trips down to the States. Previous owners did a good job. Sadly, the new owners have decided to produce their meals differently and I find the quality has deteriorated dramatically. It starts with the deep fried bacon then moves to the deep fried hash browns and is topped off with mediocre service.

As a person who travels a lot and has sampled breakfasts at a wide variety of places, I would say this is now one of the worst breakfasts I have had. In fact, I couldn't believe a place could deteriorate so quickly so, I went back a second time and had the same lousy food. Avoid!

I stopped at this restaurant for years ,always liked it - this time i stop at the restaurant and WOW - total fail -- he said the burgers were home made -- but -- the burger was the worlds cheapest brand mystery meat - the kind a dog will walk away from , I'm not kidding and the fries were re-fried !! i nearly broke all my teeth,a fork would not poke a fry,rock hard dehydrated -- the coffee was more than 10x powerful,i needed a full kettle of hot water to down 1 cup - and the meal was small,but with gross taste it was a blessing-i left hungry $12 wasted -- and the bathroom was filthy - when i first drove up i saw no cars in the lot so i got suspicious ,but i was starving so,i walked inside and saw it was people from India new owners - i thought I'd give them some busyness -- bad idea - i was so disappointed and I felt miserable -- stay far away from this place - warn all you're friends

Stopped here on way to Kelowna, place was swarming with flies, food was terrible, I had their deluxe chicken burger, it was microwaved within an inch of its life, had the texture of rubber and I have no idea what the flavour was but it wasn't chicken, ended up leaving most of my food.

Waiter was nice, soup was very good and one of my group said they were the best fries of our trip. We all had good burgers.
