Cinnamon Bear Bar and Grille (Whistler 2018): Loaded Nachos and Hot Wings

During our stay at the Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa in June, we decided to try out the dining options in the hotel. Originally, we were planning on eating at the Cinnamon Bear Grille but found out that their small restaurant was closed for a private party. Instead, we headed over to their Cinnamon Bear Bar which had more of an après ski lodge feel to it.

The thing that we noticed about Whistler (especially this year) was the large contingent of Aussies in the village… both visiting and also working in the various retail shops. It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, to find a place like Peaked Pies in Whistler.

COWS Whistler (Whistler 2018): Fluff ‘n Udder

Does anyone still remember when COWS had a store on Robson Street in Vancouver? Well, unlike Vancouver which has seen an explosion of ice cream and dessert shops over the last couple of years, Whistler has stayed fairly true to COWS.

Araxi has been on our list of places to visit in Whistler for a number of years but we’ve only just been able to drop by this past June. Located in the Village Square, it’s difficult to miss this restaurant whenever you walk through the heart of Whistler.

El Furniture Warehouse (Whistler 2018): You Get What You Pay For

El Furniture Warehouse is an oddly named bar located in the heart of the Village Stroll of Whistler, a block north of the Village Gate Blvd overpass. Arriving in Whistler around 3pm on a late and rainy July weekday, we decided to stop by here to grab some appies (a lot of the big restaurants are closed around this time of the day).

COWS (Whistler 2015) – Udderly Delicious Ice Cream

A stop in Whistler means COWS ice cream! I remember when they used to have a store on Robson in Vancouver… aside from just ice cream, they also have a fun collection of cows-related clothing.

21 Steps Kitchen and Bar (Whistler 2015)

Ingrid’s Village Cafe (Whistler 2015) – Super Sandwiches and Soup

Ingrid’s Village Cafe has been one of our favourite spots to grab a quick bite at Whistler. We always seem to order their turkey sandwich – on our first visit, it was their turkey ciabatta, and on our second visit, it was their turkey focaccia.

Zog’s Dogs (Whistler 2015)

You can’t miss Zog’s Dogs when you visit Whistler. Located near the ski lifts, the smell of freshly sautéed onions wafts everywhere. Sophie remembered the french fries from our last visit here so we knew we had to stop by.
