Ingrid’s Village Café
Located in the heart of Whistler Village, Ingrid’s Village Café is one of the top spots for a delicious Whistler breakfast. With a classic breakfast menu that could satisfy even the pickiest eater, Ingrid’s Village Café is one of our village favorites. Hungry for a breakfast wrap? How about some homemade, organic muesli with milk? More of an avocado toast person? Ingrid’s has it all! Not only is the menu diverse with both flashy and less assuming possibilities, but it’s also reasonably priced. Most breakfast options are available for under CAD 10. If you’re looking for a casual breakfast eatery with plenty of options and lots of charm, this is the spot for you!
Wildwood Cafe – Function Junction
This is one of our very favorite spots to eat at – especially for breakfast. Located a little farther out of town, its worth the drive. With giant serving sizes and delicious signature breakfast options like Eggs Rockefeller (creamed spinach, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on toast) or the Jumbo (three eggs, bacon, pancakes, French toast or even banana bread French toast), the Wildwood won’t be left hungry.
They even feature breakfast bowls, burritos, and vegan options! This casual eatery will set you back about CAD 8-11, and is open for business early, around 7 am, giving you plenty of time to enjoy your breakfast and hit the slopes.
Stones Edge Kitchen
This delightful kitchen describes itself as the ultimate comfort food provider, aiming to nourish both your body and soul. The Stones Edge Kitchen prides itself on modern Canadian cooking with all the sustainable foods you need without any of the complexity – an ethos they certainly provide with their hearty brunch menu.
Though it’s a bit pricier than some of the other Whistler options, the Stones Edge Kitchen unquestionably provides you with modern Canadian options like poutine (for breakfast, people), acai bowls, Canadian eggs benedict, and grandma’s fluffy biscuits. Breakfast (or 2nd breakfast) is served from 9 am through 3 pm, perfect for those early-but-not-too-early risers who want a comforting breakfast before hitting the town.
All Day Breakfast in Whistler
Listen, we understand. Sometimes breakfast isn’t just for breakfast – sometimes, breakfast should be for lunch or dinner, or for lunch and dinner. We don’t discriminate here. Whether you’re seeking an out-of-the-ordinary meal or just can’t stand the thought of not eating a stack of fluffy pancakes after exploring the great outdoors, we’ve got the perfect list of restaurants which serve all-day breakfast.
Bonjour, crepe lovers. If you’re seeking yummy breakfast crepes at any hour of the day, then you’re in luck, Crepe Montagne will serve up the breakfast you crave all day long. Whether you’re looking for nordique style, or something more exciting like the slalom style (think egg, ham, cheese, and tomatoes), or even sweet crepes filled with fruit, jam, Nutella, and chocolate, you are in luck. Plus, you can sip on mimosas with your crepes, if you’re looking to celebrate the rise of the sun. It’s impossible to miss out on these crepes, considering their hours are 7:30am-11pm – that means breakfast crepes all day long!
If you’re looking for an all-day shop that serves up pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and of course, coffee, then the Fix Café is the place for you. Self-designated as one of Whistler’s favorite coffee shops and cafes, this cute, little spot offers gourmet coffees, pastries, and breakfast sandwiches all day long. Everything is made in-house!
Want a breakfast smoothie at 2 pm? Fix can do that for you! How about a yummy breakfast pastry? They have those, too! It’s the perfect option for coming off the slopes and satisfying those your cravings before heading back to the powder again.

Secondly, you’re in luck. Whistler, has a ton of delicious breakfast spots that won’t make your wallet cry. We know you have to save every last dollar for rent anyway….
Gone Village Eatery
This little coffee shop and café combo is smack dab in the middle of Village Square, and it’s almost too good to be true. Simply step out the door of your hotel, take a few strides, walk into the Gone Village Eatery, and you’re moments away from scarfing down delicious breakfast foods like eggs benedict, paleo breakfast options, organic teas, coffees, and pastries!
You’ll pay less than $10 CAD for your first meal of the day. Sound’s too good to be true, right? There is one caveat, with these great prices and delicious foods, you’re liable to have to wait in a line! Make sure you get there before the crowd – the locals love it!
Two words, friends. Meat. Pies. That’s right. Meat pies for breakfast paired with your artisan coffee – that’s what Peaked Pies in Whistler can offer you, all for an affordable price! Open for both breakfast and lunch, you and your crew can experiment with an Australian special, flaky pies for breakfast (lunch and dinner too).
We’re talking traditional meat pies, Vegetable medley pies, rise & shine pies, and even sweet apple crumble pies. What’s best about these pies? They’re affordable! You’ll pay less than $7 for your breakfast pie and coffee, and the sweet treats are even less than that! Best of all, they open at 8 am, giving you plenty of time to hit the slopes after you’ve stuffed yourself with breakfast pies.
The Southside Diner
If you’re looking for the local hangout and a delicious, affordable breakfast spot all rolled into one, then the Southside Diner might be your haven. This spot quickly welcomes you with its quirky diner décor and makes you feel like a regular on your first visit.
They’ve got delicious diner favorites like The Southside Slam (bacon, eggs, pancakes and home fries), breakfast poutine (we’re in Canada, so duh), and even healthy options like oatmeal deluxe and smoked salmon bagels.
What makes this place one of our favorites though? Sure, the food is delicious, and the portion sizes are generous, but most of all, the prices are extra fair! You can eat a tasty, diner-style breakfast for under $10CAD. Of course, if you want to splurge a bit, they have pricier, more extravagant options like their Mr. Piggy (three eggs, with bacon, sausage, and ham!).
If it were up to us, we’d probably eat breakfast for every meal of the day. Because you obviously need some solid fuel for ax throwing. Eggs, bacon, and axe’s right? We promise this isn’t just another top ten list of the best places to eat, because we’ve literally eaten at each and every one of these spots and they come highly recommended.
