BC Ferries seeks public input on ‘Pacific Buffet’ replacement restaurant


Another buffet? A fancy, sit-down restaurant? A cheapo, grab-and-go spot?

BC Ferries is trying to get the public’s opinions on what they should replace the former Pacific Buffet with. 

They say in the last year the Pacific Buffet was open, it lost approximately $1.2 million annually.

BC Ferries already launched one survey to gauge what the public want in a new food service that around 10,000 people responded to. 

“Overall, respondents said they wanted a space that was special and distinct from the Seawest Lounge and cafeteria spaces offered on the Vancouver (Tsawwassen) to Victoria (Swartz Bay) route,” said BC Ferries in a media release.

Now, they seek more specific feedback to determine what kind of food at what kind of price point they will serve. 

For the time being, the Coastal Café, Seawest Lounge and Arbutus Coffee Bar remain open to serve BC Ferries commuters. 

Find the second online survey, here. It will be open for just two weeks.
