As you may know already, all of our Whistler properties have fully equipped kitchens to meet your basic cooking needs. Having said that, not everyone wants to be busy in the kitchen while on vacation in Whistler – there are just more interesting and fun activities to do in this mountain playground. Nobody but us locals can understand this better. Save yourself this precious play time and pick one of the following places that are famous for their breakfast menu.

Breakfast Restaurants in Whistler Upper Village
#1 Portobello Market & Fresh Bakery
"The best sandwiches in town."
We are so lucky to have this amazing café just a few steps away from our office at the Aspens lodge (slope-side of Blackcomb Mountain, the base of Wizard chair). As advertised on their site, this place truly is a local’s favorite café in the Upper Whistler Village. They offer a great selection of hot and cold drinks (organic coffee, Italian sodas, Belgian hot chocolate menu), fresh bread and sweet baked goodies, but the one thing they do really well is their sandwiches. You can choose from three to four kinds house-made of bread (sourdough, whole grain etc.) and let the sandwich maker literally load it with all cold meats, veggies, spreads, and sauces. It’s quite entertaining to watch other people order (hungry ski-bums especially) as some just go by the “sky is the limit” rule! Other options include house-made soups, hearty breakfast bowls, BBQ, and smokehouse inspired dinners and much more.
