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

We stopped here several times during our ski holiday. Its hard to get a table but worth the wait. They serve great chilli and soup and the best waffles in Whistler Blackcomb... not to be missed!

Amazing waffles! It was a great mid morning break after skiing hard. Kids needed some fuel and this was the perfect place. Waffles with berries, chocolate and whipped cream were just what they needed to hit the slopes again

Love this little gem..... If you are lucky enough to get a table, the stew served with mash and cheesy bread is excellent! A little pricier than elsewhere, but worth the premium.

This restaurant has the most fantastic view so go when the sun is out & you can sit outside. You have to have the waffles which are legendary.

I was told these were world class waffles but being a natural sceptic found this hard to believe for a tiny cabin perched on a hill, even one of the best skiing hills in the world! Once the waffle had been cooked I found myself a convert, these are really the best waffles I have ever seen. A wonderful way... More

Crystal Hut is one of our favourite places to eat on Blackcomb. The waffles are amazing but the savoury choices are all delicious and wholesome. The soup, salad, gruyere bread combo was my favourite. If they added mulled wine to their menu I'd be even happier. It's always cold by the time you get to the top of Crystal Chair.... More
