Whistler Dining Series – Part 2 – Breakfast

Black Tusk

Restaurants in Whistler you need to try…for breakfast! We continue on our series of our favourite spots to eat in Whistler, that began with dinner.  As with any vacation, while you are away, you need three meals, not just dinner.  Although it is possible in some hotels/condos to make your own breakfast, it is still a great idea to go out and enjoy the breakfast some of the restaurants offer.  These are our favourites and we think you should try them.

1. Amsterdam Cafe Pub

The Amsterdam Cafe Pub is located in the heart of Whistler Village near the Whistler Grocery Store.  This is a pretty hoppin’ place for après ski and into the night, but it is a nice quiet place for breakfast and the food is good too!  They have a great mix of choices, so you should be able to find something to your liking and reasonably priced.

2. Crystal Hut

This one is only for skiers or snowboarders, but it is a must visit if you are up Blackcomb Mountain.  The hut is located at the top of the Crystal Chair and serves amazing waffles!  Freshly made on order with your choice of toppings, including syrup, strawberries, chocolate chips, and whipped cream.  These waffles are absolutely delicious!



3. Crepe Montagne

Crepe Montagne is located near the 7–11 in Whistler Village (across from the Alpenglow and Summit Lodge hotels).  As the name implies the focus is crepes (thin French style pancake for those who are not sure what it is).  They have a great selection of both savory (meat, egg, hearty fillings) and sweet crepes!  No matter what you want, you should be able to find a favourite crepe at Crepe Montagne.

4. Dubh Linn Gate

The Dubh Linn Gate is located right at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside.  We mentioned it in our dinner post for its great dinner selection, but it is just as good for breakfast.  You can expect a bit more savory foods like eggs, sausage, bacon, etc., as it is an Irish/United Kingdom type of Pub.

5. La Brasserie

La Brasserie is also in the heart of the Village immediately around the corner from Amsterdam Pub.  The restaurant is a bit fancier than some on this list, but the prices are still reasonable.  It offers a reasonably sized breakfast menu with various selections from pancakes to omelettes.  Worth checking out if you are looking for another option.

6. Hot Buns Bakery

If you are looking for a lighter breakfast or a breakfast in a hurry, Hot Buns Bakery is the place for you.  It is located around the corner from La Brasserie (other direction from the Amsterdam Pub).  It offers you many lighter meal options including scones, croissants and their famous cinnamon buns.  The food is delicious!

7. White Spot

Although it is not a Whistler original, it is just as good for breakfast.  White Spot Restaurants exist throughout Western Canada (mostly BC).  They serve a delicious breakfast selection that includes all of our favourites (pancakes, eggs dishes, omelettes, and French toast)!  The Whistler location is in the Aava Hotel parking lot.  It is a little off the Village stroll, but it is a good breakfast spot and not a far walk.

These are our favourite breakfast spots in Whistler, BC.  That is not to say that we don’t love some of the other restaurants in town, but these ones top the list.  If you make your way to Whistler, make sure to check out any of the restaurants above and you will not be disappointed! Stay tuned in the next few weeks as we continue our culinary look at Whistler with dessert and après ski spots!!!
