“Delicious food with attitude”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

When we entered this small restaurant, we saw a sign indicating that unattended children will be given a free kitten. The attitude continued as the waitress interacted with us. "It's my job to get you to spend money," she explained when she offered an upgrade to real maple syrup. Our food was delicious and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.

“Real good diner breakfast - and I love diners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Huge portions of good, down-home breakfast fare. The place is small, and includes a hostel above and laundramat below it, but dont be put off by the slightly wacky look/feel of this place. Its a solid 8/9 for the food and I really like a quirky atmosphere. Its right on 99, just outside the Creekside resort area.

“Comfort food with a twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

I stopped by the Southside to grab a bite in Whistler. The Southside is a bit understated on the outside but stylish on the inside.

The menu seemed to a nice selection of dishes all with a unique twist, such a several variations of hamburgers one of which was made with lamb that I opted for.

The chefs seemingly are french Canadian and they really have a passion for what they do. I sat at the bar and watched them cook and they were all about the ingredients. A lot of care went in to what they made. When my lamburger arrived...oh wow! Yeah, this place is choice. Fresh cut fries to boot!

“Perfect poutine for a cold day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

I didnt encounter a better place to stop after a day on the mountain. Sitting in the diner watching the snow fall was surreal. Great American sandwiches and one of the best poutines I had in canada.

“Great quirky find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

This classic diner is right down the block from Nita Lodge in Whistler. It is clean with a good selection of breakfast options. They poke clever fun at demanding customers and have no patience for those who might venture through the door with a Starbuck's or other fancy coffee in hand - so be warned. The food is very good and the servings generous. This is described as a place where the regulars hang out and I can see why. A great place to visit when you need to change up your breakfast options.
