The food is real, no frozen or microwave want a bees. This food is fantastic! The service is fast and professional. The place gets packed on the weekends and as it should be. If you have to wait no big deal. They will get you in and get you out.

After several horrible breakfast experiences in Squamish, we were glad to find this place. Clean, nice service, fast, well priced, excellent food quality. I had the 3 egg omelet, with homemade multigrain toast and nicely presented fresh fruit. Quality ingredients, fresh & appetizing plating. All round, did the breakfast job perfectly :) High recommend this place especially given the lack... More

We didn't go for the large portions but you couldn't help but notice them! I actually orders off the kids menu that is open to kids of all ages. We had lunch here one day and breakfast another we were so impressed with the good food, good prices, good location and good service. Lots of variety on the menu. Service... More

Chef Big D,s seems to be popular for breakfast. Maybe there are limited places for breakfast in Squamish. There are lots of tables and a busy kichen. The food was good, but quite expensive for breakfast.

Chef Big D's is a simple breakfast and lunch restaurant in downtown Squamish. The menu is straightforward. Classic breakfast and soup/sandwiches for lunch. But of all the restaurants in Squamish, we have eaten here more than anywhere. The biggest reason is that the food is totally reliable. You get exactly what you expect every time. Not rocket science but good.

Traditional breakfast of sausage links and eggs...the cranberry toast was superb, the sausage links were large and tasty and the eggs done just right... Good service and although crowded, I found a window table right away.

Looking at some of the other negative reviews I see why we received the service we did. Terrible table service and manager was even worse to deal with. Extremely unproffesional.

Delicious breakfast!! Oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon, cooked in apple juice. Yummy!! Eggs over easy with the most delicious potato chips, and a large serving of veggies and multi grain bread. Downfall - poor services; didn't get my side of bacon, had to hound them for coffee, dirty dishes left on tables! I'd go back though, but not if I... More

On one hand I can go on and on about the food at this restaurant and how if you are in Squamish it is the best place for breakfast......or I could say "blah! Don't go there" so it doesn't get busier and harder for me to get a table :) Seriously though, best breakfast in Squamish, North Vancouver or whistler... More

Always has consistently good food. Menu is pretty much what you would expect at a place that just serves the daytime crowd. can get pretty busy on a Saturday for brunch but they manage the crowds well.
