We stayed at the Fairmont but discovered this the day we left. Late breakfast was delicious and reasonably priced.

Excellent hot and cold sandwiches, pastries, coffee. Eat in either indoors or on patio, also take away. Food in Whistler is expensive everywhere, but reasonably priced for this resort town.

We probably never would have eaten here, but we got a lunch included with our bike rental from Cam-Ski, so afterwards - we went and got the most amazing sandwiches. The bread was so fresh and tasty. It's hard these days to satisfy our teens stomachs, but these sandwiches are enormous. It's kind of like Subway, you tell them what... More

We rented bikes at the shop opposite Portobello and cycled for a few hours around Lost & Alta lakes. With the bike rental we got gift certificates for Portobello & so ended up back there at about 2pm.....we had a really lovely lunch sitting outside , eating their fantastic sandwiches . Great location , just remember it closes at 5pm!

Came here after a morning of biking around the lakes STARVING and looking for a filling lunch. I paid $6 for one (!!!!!) slice of pepperoni pizza, and the bf $11 for a build-your-own Italian sandwich. No hot fillings (ex. Chicken breast). No meal deals. Was left still hungry and unimpressed.

If you like food and you like sandwiches Portobello is for you! For one flat price you can have as much meat and salad on your sandwich as you like. They are amazing!
