The Best Whistler Restaurants Guide

Best Whistler Breakfast

Hot Buns Cafe

Hot Buns Bakery WhistlerIf you’re taking the Village Stroll, we recommend following the scent of fresh waffles, sweet and savoury crepes, cinnamon sticky buns, and delicious hot coffee. If you do, it’s likely to take you to the Hot Buns Bakery and Café.

We’re not skiers ourselves, but if we were headed to the mountain, we’d warm up first with a cup of Java and one of their bakery favourites. However, you don’t have to be a winter sports fan to enjoy the delicious goodies in this shop. It’s also a fantastic place for a full breakfast or lunch.

Although Hot Buns excels as a bakery, you won’t want to miss delicious goodies like their breakfast crepes, or tasty ham and cheese croissants and chicken and pesto. With its convenient location, friendly staff, and excellent menu options, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Hot Buns Bakery.

What to order:

Omigosh, those Cinamon Buns!

Stonesedge Kitchen

With its rustic décor, craft cocktails, and beautiful outdoor seating area, Stonesedge Kitchen is one of our favorite breakfast places in Whistler. Don’t get us wrong – Stonesedge serves amazing après, dinner, and late-night meals. However, it’s the breakfast options that keep diners coming back! Kick back with a fruity Mimosa, strong cold-brew, or classic Americano, and then dive into the extensive brunch menu.

Keep things Canadian with the Farmers Breakfast Poutine (who doesn’t love cheese curds, right?!) or take things back to basics with the Traditional Breakfast. Featuring potatoes, chorizo sausage, and two eggs any style, it’s one of the best things on the menu by far. If you have an insatiable sweet tooth, go for the Belgian Liege Waffles or the House Made Banana Bread.

What to order:

The Farmers Breakfast Poutine, Traditional Breakfast, Belgian Liege Waffle, or House Made Banana Bread.

Lauded for its alpine cuisine, welcoming atmosphere, and seasonal eats, The Den at Nita Lake Lodge is the perfect spot for a relaxing cup of coffee and an unbeatable Eggs Benny. Oops – did we say an unbeatable Eggs Benny? We meant BOTTOMLESS Bennies! Served with country potatoes and a glass of fresh orange juice, you can quite literally eat Bennies until your stomach begs for mercy.

If Bennies aren’t your bag, try out the lighter Spa Breakfast which includes poached eggs, green chickpea hummus, kale, and tomatoes. For something sweeter, you can’t beat the iconic Blueberry Pancakes with a rich compote and whipped cream.

For the ultimate brunching extravaganza, pair your meal with a Breakfast Mimosa or specialty coffee. If you’re traveling with little ones, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s an exclusive menu for kids 12 and under. You know what that means – no more tantrums!

The Bottomless Bennies or Blueberry Pancakes.
