Where to Get Breakfast in Whistler:

Hot Buns Bakery

Where to find it: 

We love Hot Buns Bakery because it’s easy to get to from any hotel in Whistler Village and open early. Hot Buns opens at 7:30 am but Whistler Bike Park doesn’t open until 10:00 am, so you have plenty of time to sit down and enjoy some delicious baked goods!

What to order: 

Our favorite items are the fresh croissants and crepes. The crepes are freshly made-to-order with a white/ buckwheat flour batter which tastes amazing! And of course you have to get a sticky bun, because Hot Buns.


Where to Get Lunch in Whistler:

Beacon for Burgers

Where to find it: 

In the heart of Whistler Village, you can’t miss Beacon’s blue sign with a white anchor! You can choose from two floors of indoor seating which will provide great views of the stroll road, or outdoor patio seating to enjoy summer weather.

What to order: 

Our favorite item on the menu is the Wagyu Beef Burger. This classic burger comes in two varieties, but we prefer the one with jalapenos. It’s also served on a pretzel bun. YUM! This is one of the best burgers we’ve ever had, so you must try it!


Ingrid’s For Wraps

Where to find it: 

Blink and you’ll miss it (I did), but Ingrid’s Cafe is actually right on the Whistler Village stroll road beside La Bocca.

What to order: 

Ingrid’s has a large sandwich menu, any of which can be turned into a wrap. We felt like we ended up eating a lot of heavy, indulgent food in Whistler and it was nice to take a break with a veggie wrap from Ingrid’s!

We also loved the veggie samosa with fresh brownies for desert!


Earl’s for Fancy

Where to find it: 

Say you’re feeling a little posh but the local fancy restaurants aren’t open yet…. Opt instead of the Canadian chain, Earl’s! You can’t miss Earl’s on the second floor a shopping center right beside the movie theater on the Village Stroll.

What to order: 

Unlike other chain restaurants Earl’s has a delicious menu and a really comfortable upper-class feel. We recommend the burgers for lunch time with a salad or garlic fries. Both the Bigger Better Burger and Veggie Burger were amazing, and the service is wonderful! Be prepared to really sit down and enjoy your meal, though. Our two meals at Earl’s both took over an hour from start to finish.


Where to Get Dinner in Whistler:

Harajuku for Sushi

Where to find it: 

Tucked behind Village Square in the Royal Bank Plaza off of Whistler Way, you won’t regret seeking out this Japanese gem. Harajuku’s dining room is designed to recreate a 1900’s Japanese village, complete with removing your shoes before sitting in a booth!

What to order: 

Our favorite items were the fried brussels sprouts and Crunchy Tuna Sushi Roll, but we honestly really loved everything we had. Try to come early, though. It’s tucked away but no secret: by 6:30 on a weekday this place is packed!


The Mexican Corner for Tacos or Tapas

Where to find it: 

The Mexican Corner is a great choice for delicious Mexican food in Whistler! The owner is a native of Mexico and brought his favorite meals and colorful decor to western Canada. Sit inside to enjoy the fun atmosphere!

The Mexican Corner is at on the second level of the Sundial Hotel, or from the stairs where Mountain Square and the Village Stroll meet.

What to order: 

We recommend the house made guacamole with fresh tortilla chips, the Al Pastor tacos, and fresh churros for desert. After trying almost everything on the menu our other favorites are anything with tuna, if you’re feeling adventurous!

If you’d rather try a collection of things just order a few appetizers to share. They are well worth it!


Basalt for Fancy Eating

Where to find it: 

With patio access of of Village Stroll you can’t miss Basalt!

Our dinner at Basalt was easily the best dining experience I’ve ever had! There are indoor and outdoor seating options, but there’s really no point in sitting inside since they provide blankets, cushioned chairs, and overhead heating year-round on their patio!

What to order: 

We had a chef-prepared cheese plate with lots of delicious items, inventive mocktails, and incredibly creative and delicious entrees. While our favorite with the lamb leg confit, This restaurant’s revolving, seasonal menu doesn’t have a bad option!

Considering the cozy outdoor atmosphere, delicious menu, and friendly service Basalt is our choice for a fancy meal!

21 Step for Comfort Food

Where to find it: 

Located on the Village Stroll just pass the staired Skiers Approach.

What to order: 

We didn’t have the chance to eat here, but it was recommended twice to us! The menu is full of delicious- sounding items like stuffed mushrooms, schnitzel, and past bolognese. If only we’d had more time! But is seems like you really can’t go wrong eating at 21 Step!


Good food is a big part of enjoying a vacation, and I hope you end up loving some of these Whistler restaurants as much as we do!
