“A real diner experience!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

A great real diner just around the corner from Nita Lake Lodge - we went here for the most massive pancakes ever!
I asked for an espresso and she pointed to it on the menu - a $17 late they would collect from Starbucks! Was tempting to order one just for a laugh ;) So, bad diner coffee but a fabulous experience!!

“Calling All Breakfast Customers - Get It Here!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Yummmm...tasty breakfasts served here! Locals congregate at Southside which is usually a good sign. Hubby heard about this diner from someone in Whistler, and after a flavorless breakfast experience at our village hotel we decided to try it. Later we read local reviews which indicated this is one of the top 2 breakfast serving choices in Whistler. We opted for take-out so we can't address in-house service, but the staff we met were courteous and prompt, and we know the kitchen staff perform well! :) One meal here quickly led to another and another during our stay! It is not a fancy restaurant; it is a diner - perfect for breakfast or a quick lunch take-out for hiking or picnic outings. The menu offers a varied selection of choices for each meal. Southside serves 3 meals daily, however, I prefer dinner in a less casual environment.

Large portions of nicely seasoned and properly prepared morning food with rich, yellow-yolked eggs (unlike the very pale ones at our hotel!) turned us into breakfast-happy tourists. Staff and customers alike are friendly and enjoy casual chatting. Maybe the wholesome country breakfasts put everyone in a good mood! Try it; you'll like it! Located on the corner of Hwy 99 and Lake Placid Road - on the left as you head toward the village, in an area referred to as Creekside.

“Great lunch, awesome staff”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Great full diner menu. Excellent, friendly staff who work their buns off! We loved the music selection too.
Eggs benny was delicious and corned beef "hash" was different than expected (scrambled eggs not poached)but very yummy. Ready coffee always on hand.
No nonsense atmosphere (built to look like and old diner car of times gone by), good home cooked meals, and you can watch your meals being prepared as the kitchen is right behind the counter (there's stools too!!)
Offered both RED and GREEN Tabasco sauces for our eggs.
Local families in abundance on a Sunday, nice to see.
Will recommend to all we know who go to Whistler Creekside.

Reviewed June 7, 2012

People and service was very nice, quaint little place back to the "Happy Days" era. We stopped in for a drink and would of stayed for a meal but the place had some funky smells
