Popped in for a mid-afternoon snack. Unfortunately all they had left was waffles but that was fine (especially for the kids). We were lucky with our seating so be sure you have seating before ordering otherwise you're out in the cold. Staff seem to be...More

The location is lovely and the outside sitting area has amazing views. This is a great location. However, they need to do so much better at organising the place and themselves. Just keep an eye on space and TELL PEOPLE BEFORE they get their lunch...More

The venue is located in the ski arena of Whistler. They have inside and outside seating from which the view is great. We had drinks and waffles only which were good. The service is very kind.

A must do stop if you have the time. As part of the overall experience on the Whistler/Blackcomb skiing experience, this small hut is ideal for a mid-morning breakfast or lunch stop. We stopped for the waffle specialty to 10am and found it a very...More
