Though I frequent Chef Big D's primarily for their excellent breakfasts, they also do smashing lunches, and mid-shopping snacks. Take a break on Cleveland Avenue.

Had breakfast with the family - including a toddler,a 4 year-old and grandparents. Good menu selection, good food, and excellent service. I had the salmon frigates which was good.

Great breakfast place. We make the drive from Langley just for their breakfast. They do eggs Benny on the weekend as a special.

Big D's is right on the main drag in downtown Squamish and has a very local feel. The breakfast are large and delicious. Service is casual and just what you'd expect at a diner, which means quick and attentive. This is a great place to hit before you ski, climb or hike your day away in Whistler or Squamish.

This is a humble spot, but the food was pretty good. Portions are not overly large, but substantial enough. We tried the a breakfast (breaky), fruit and yogurt, a burger. Everyone seemed happy with their meal. We chose this place because it had a crowd (versus the near-empty places around). And it stayed busy the whole time we were there:... More

My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch on a Monday around 2:30pm. They close at 3pm so we had a minor concern for the food and service however it was completely unfounded as we had a wonderful lunch. The restaurant was not busy as it was a Monday and close to closing time. We were seated promptly... More

A delicious spot for breakfast with Squamish locals. The mountain man breakfast is enough to feed a logger and the fruit plate is enough to fill the belly of the tightest yoga bum. A great spot to meet with family or friends downtown Squamish.
