“Awesome eats / great for a laugh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Always have some fantastic lunch specials and a staff that is friendly enough to kill endless hours with during the summer lull! Definitely the go-to bar in town.

“A Favorite of Locals For a Reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

If you want to really get a sense of what Big White is about, have great coffee, great wine, great food and a great time - check out The Globe. The culture there is fantastic - super friendly staff - the kind of place where after a couple times you could say 'the regular' and they would know what that meant. :) They take pride in the food they offer every day - fresh, fresh ingredients (which is harder to get on the mountain that you would like to imagine) and the chef obviously takes pride in coming up with creative specials that keep you excited to try something new. Highly recommend you check it out if you get the opportunity.
