Here are the best brunch spots to fuel up at before a hard day on the mountain, to carb-load after the night before or just to sit and enjoy the morning with no plans for the day.
Does anything hit the spot quite like diner food? Southside Diner “no-fuss” brunch is sure to hit the spot with a variety of delicious menu items such as huevos rancheros, the Southside Slam (bacon and sausage with two eggs and two pancakes), and the ever-popular BELTCH sandwich, featuring bacon, egg, lettuce, tomato, cheese and ham on toast.
Looking for a more upscale brunch option? You can opt for your classic bacon-and-egg breakfast or simply amazing French toast. However, local picks include the benedicts – the version topped with British Columbia smoked salmon, crispy capers and citrus hollandaise or a frittata made with free-range eggs and served with artisan bread.
Get a little taste of France in Whistler where their speciality is authentic French crepes. The options extend to more intricate plates, like pancake stacks, toasted westerns and a choice of six different types of eggs benedict and of course a wide-range variety of crepes. Looking for a boozy brunch? They offer a full cocktail menu as well.
Outside of the village bustle, the Alpine Café is a local’s hot spot. Founded by two former employees of Araxi Restuarant, an award-winning Whistler establishment. The menu is simple, such as eggs-any-style plates with a side of bacon, potatoes and toast or a variety of breakfast sandwiches, burritos and bagels but so tasty and with a casual atmosphere.
Looking for somewhere casual with a great atmosphere and the smell of freshly bakes pastries? Portobello offers excellent coffee, pastries, breakfast bowls and quick and easy service. The adirondack chairs outside circle around a firepit and I think a lovely way to start your day!
Looking for a great list of brunch cocktails? Stonesedge Kitchen offers a rustic elegance, effortless charm, and is polished without being fussy. Items on their menu are classic but with a flare you won’t find anywhere else like the breakfast poutine or the breakfast charcuterie board.
