Very pleasant inside but portions small and better value to be had elsewhere on the mountain. Great views though and if you are skiing this part of the mountain a nice ace to stop (chic pea over on Whistler a better bet for lunch).

The best waffles I've ever tasted and very generous portions. Get there early to beat the queue. There is also a fantastic view from the terrace.

The food here is delicious we stumbled across it by chance whilst skiing. The food I believe is homemade and was hearty. Really good portion. Exactly what you fancy when up a mountain. Staff were great, really happy and good service! Wonderful place!

The location is exclusive, and they have an amazing view. However the food options were limited but very well done. Their Waffles are out of this world, but the Coffee was bad. Recommended for Skii lunch break!

Never been a great fan of waffles and hose that are 'fully loaded' have so much wet stuff on them it soon becomes just a soggy mess. However the lunch menu is brilliant few items but their Braised Beef Sandwich is great, their salads are great and their soups are great. It is an excellent location with a real good... More

At the top of crystal express chairlift this small restaurant has a warm atmosphere. The waffles with maple syrup berries and cream are fantastic. Gets very busy at lunch time so arrive early and don't expect a large group to be able to sit toget

An employee from the village suggested that we have the well know Belgian Waffles for breakfast at Crystal Hut Peak. So in the morning we went up 2-3 gondola rides to the peak and it was so worth it. Best waffles I've ever had. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the elevation but they were so... More

Couldn't imagine a more incredible spot to enjoy some waffles. Sitting out on the balcony in the sunshine after a hard day riding Blackcomb mountain was an absolute highlight of my trip. The waffles were a 6/10 (mainly due to their price) but the novelty of the location, perched upon a mountain top in a small log cabin, and amazing... More

This was one thing you MUST do while you are visiting Whistler. It's not easy to find, but its worth the trek up the mountain. We went up early one morning so we could try the famous waffles. The waffles were amazing, but the view was better. It's just a little shack on a mountain, but it was quite the... More
