You can dine on nearly any cuisine here in Whistler. We have Japanese steak, Italian pasta, French crepes and anything else you can think of. But sometimes when we have a busy day of exploring and activities, we just want a tasty treat to tide us over until dinner time. Here are some of Whistler’s best snacks and treats!

Cow’s Ice Cream - Birthday Cake Flavor

It’s easy to find Cow’s during the summer, it’s the place with the line up outside! If you’re lucky and there's no line, you can spot it by looking for the place with a large cow at the door. Don’t worry, the cow is plastic and very happy to pose for pictures.

Inside you’ll find more flavors than you could ever imagine! They have ‘Cookie Moonster’, ‘Gooey Mooey’, ‘Moo York Cheesecake’ and even more crazily named flavors. If it’s too hard to choose then you really can’t go wrong with ‘Birthday Cake’ flavor. With its exciting white and blue coloring, it looks just as good as it tastes!

Merlin’s Bar & Grill - The Jester Caesar

Ok, so not normally considered a snack, but look at the Caesar you can get from Merlin’s! The Caesar is a sacred drink in Canada and every bar and restaurant wants to make the best one possible. We think Merlin’s have one of the best in town with ‘The Jester’. This is a drink and a meal all in one! Definitely one to share!

Not only do you get a Caesar made by some of the best bartenders in Whistler it also comes topped with chicken wings, onion rings, cured bacon, and Black Tusk beef jerky. The hardest part about ordering this drink is deciding who to share it with!

Blenz Coffee - Signature Hot Chocolate

Seeing as we’re a mountain town and winters get cold, it’s no surprise that hot drinks are very popular here. We have a wide choice of cool and cozy cafes to kick back in. And we also have places serving traditional macchiatos and strong espressos to cafes with frappuccinos and turmeric lattes.

But if you ask us, the best hot drink in Whistler is the signature hot chocolate from Blenz. And it’s not just us who think so! The signature hot chocolate is a regular winner of best hot drink in Whistler! Perfect for an evening stroll around the village!

Purebread - Anything!

Purebread is a dangerous place - those who enter never want to leave! This busy bakery on Olympic Plaza is buzzing with customers throughout the day, and it’s easy to see why - Purebread has the best baked goods in Whistler.

Whether you’ve got a sweet or savory tooth, you’ll find something here to suit. Boozy French apple cake for those who are treating themselves and cheesy jalapeno scones for those wanting something more substantial. They also have a wide selection of bread, cakes, coffees, and cookies. I told you that you wouldn’t want to leave!

Whistler Sweet Treats Crystal Hut Waffles

Crystal Hut - Waffles

A Whistler favorite! The waffles served at the Crystal Hut on Blackcomb Mountain are a superb addition to any day in Whistler. And the Crystal Hut isn’t half bad either! Located beside the top of Crystal Ridge Express is the cozy hut with a stunning patio. The views reach for miles and take in some fantastic mountain vistas.

The waffles are a decadent treat that comes loaded with whipped cream, berry compote, maple syrup (we’re in Canada after all!), and chocolate. Make sure you get that Instagram snap quickly though, these waffles don’t last long once they’re on your table. Unfortunately, Crystal Hut is only open during winter.

So there you have it, a look at some of Whistler’s best treats. But there’s so much more than what’s just listed here. You know you’ll have a blast seeking out the best treats in Whistler. Go on, you deserve it!
