Enjoying a long relaxed meal with friends or family is one of life’s great pleasures. But often on vacation time can be tight, and sometimes you simply need to eat. Just because you’re tight on time doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice taste. Discover some great grab and go options in Whistler’s restaurants and cafes that will satisfy your cravings without eating up your time.
Got a hankering for poutine? Zog’s in Skiers Plaza will leave you satisfied…(just follow the smell of gently cooked onions). At the other end of town Splitz Grill does some of the best burgers around.
Being on vacation doesn’t mean you have to give up your clean eating routine. If you crave something tasty, quick, and healthy, stop by The Green Moustache for one of their locally famous Buddha bowls or Naked Sprout for juices and salads galore.
Over at La Cantina, the burritos, salads and tacos are served with speed and a solid serving of vegetables and flavour.
All around the world you can count on pizza for a quick bite that’s easy on the wallet. Avalanche Pizza is partway along the Village Stroll for a mid-shop snack, and Fat Tony’s is the classic late night pizza place with locations within steps of local nightclubs near Skier’s Plaza and the Conference Centre. If you’re hungry after attempting the Escape! Whistler rooms, Misty Mountain Pizza is right at the exit for a slice while Gnarly Roots Pizza can be found right across from the Whistler Olympic Plaza skating rink.
Our weather here in Whistler tends to be a little warmer than most ski destinations, but if you’ve come from a warm climate, it can still take some getting used to. A piping hot soup is the perfect way to warm yourself from the inside.
Duck into any of the cafes or supermarkets in town and check out their deli counter – most places keep a selection of freshly made sandwiches, wraps and salads ready for grab-and-go appetites.
At its heart Whistler really is a small town. We love our local businesses, and you can discover some pretty amazing spots tucked away in the village. Treat yourself to a taste of Australia at Peaked Pies where serve a range of Aussie treats. Or, if you have a sweet tooth, Hot Buns Bakery is a must stop spot to try their famous cinnamon buns.
When you’re here for a ski vacation you’re going to want to maximize your time on the slopes. To have a quick lunch, stop by the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler or the Rendezvous on Blackcomb for a pre-packaged sandwich. You can take it with you and enjoy it on a chairlift ride for the best views you’ll ever have with lunch.
Last but not least, there’s a ton of popular fast food restaurants in town if you have a hankering for a favourite dish.
