If you travel to Whistler, BC, you will need to eat at some point. You could wander out into the woods and eat berries and tree bark, but I suggest that you don’t. Whistler Village has a couple supermarkets, a couple liquor stores, and plenty of restaurants. The restaurants range from super expensive to mildly expensive and there are a few good places that offer good food for a reasonable price. Each of these restaurants are a tiny bit off the main street but they are worth finding because the food is good, the prices are not going to send you into “I just spent $70 on a terrible breakfast” mode.
Crepe-Montagne is a small spot behind the big supermarket in Whistler Village. If you are planning a full day and want to fuel up before mountain biking or skiing, then drop in here for a crêpe. You will not be sorry.
2. Peaked Pies
Peaked Pies is a tiny shop. It is just across the street from the crêpe place and down (northwest?) about a half a block. What do they serve? Meat pies! If you grew up in the US and were forced to eat Swanson’s Chicken/Turkey/Mystery Meat pies then you are probably wondering why anyone would willingly eat a meat pie. I feel bad for you if your meat pie intake has been limited to Swanson’s and if you want to discover the greatness of a meat pie then you must go to Peaked Pies.
You can grab a take-away pie if you want, but you can also get the pie peaked with smooshy peas and potatoes. Do it. They also have veggie pies for people who want to be self-righteous about everything.
Creekbread is not in Whistler Village, so you will have to ride your bike or drive back toward Vancouver about five kilometers to get there, but it is worth the trip. What do they serve? Pizza, well kind of pizza. This is one of those hippie places that has taken pizza and made it into something different. Everything is free range-nonviolently killed-gently raised-antibiotic free-vegan friendly and yummy. The pizzas are pricey if you compare them to bad tasting/factory produced/garbage on pizza crust, but since I make the big bucks I like to live big. (I think the large pizza was about $25 Canadian, which isn’t too bad.)
The salads at Creekbread are also awesome. Order a large with all the veggies (there are various salad options) and one salad can feed three people while you wait for the lumberjack to cook your pizza.
There you go. I wrote a blog post with 95% information. It won’t happen again.
