There are many that will argue that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We aren’t going to try to persuade you to see otherwise but we will point you in the direction of where some of the best local spots to get breakfast are! Whether you’re looking for something quick before heading out on the mountain or something a little more filling, there are many delicious options all around town and in the village that are sure to provide the fuel you need to play! Here are some of our favourite local breakfast spots in Whistler!

The Alpine Cafe

Located in the Alpine neighbourhood just north of the village, the Alpine Cafe is a favourite among locals. Enjoy the homemade breads, baked goods and full breakfasts. The patio is also dog friendly!

Local Favourite: You can’t go wrong with Alpine Cafe’s Two Egg Any Style menu option. The homemade bread and delicious hash will make this your favourite too!

Cozy but with a twist- Elements features classic breakfast menu items but with their own signature spin.

Lift Coffee Company in Nester’s

This local coffee shop also has a delicious breakfast spread!

Local Favourite: You have to try their BLT and made sure you get it lifted which adds avocado, eggs, cheese!


With two locations, one in Function Junction and the other in the village, Wildwood is popular with  the local community and resort guests alike.

Local Favourite: Imagine one slice of homemade banana bread dipped in egg, griddled golden and then slathered in maple syrup. There is no question, it’s all about the Banana Bread French Toast.

Crepe Montagne

Locally owned and operated, you won’t be able to resist this authentic french creperie. Breakfast isn’t  limited to sweet and savoury crepes; parfaits, waffles and french toast can also be found on the menu!
