I am soooo glad I was introduced to Second Cup. Bit hard to find, tucked away by the Hilton, but conveniently close to the lifts and bike park. Look for Lululemon as Second Cup is right next door. In the summer they provide outdoor entertainment. Bring your laptop as they have free WiFi indoors.
Love their cold Hot Chocolates, and Chai London Fog (which I think should be re-named Mumbai Fog). I've never been a coffee drinker, so to find a coffee shop that satisfies my cravings is wonderful. The staff are great too in Whistler - bubbly and you almost think they are mistaking you for someone else they know because they are so genuinely friendly. Someone knows how to hire the right staff.
I often have their muffins - love the carrot, zucchini and raisin with walnuts on top. There's always newsapers to read, and comfy leather benches.
Only problem - place needs a renovation. Tiles falling off, paint peeled, bit outdated colours. Sounds like management knows, but great thing is it doesn't hold staff back from ensuiring you have a welcoming and relaxing time there.

Located underground with the Village 8 Cinema's, just across from the Eddie Bauer clothing store in the main Whistler village.
Home style cooking, very genuine friendly service (not pretentious) and reasonably priced. They have weekly specials, yet their menu prices are a good deal also. Good size portions, hot plates (that's always a plus in our eyes), and very comfortable leather seating (big plus again).
You won't go wrong at Three Below. Our family ate there for the first time this month, and now we know why it's been a local's favorite for a long time. We work in the food industry, and have no hesitation in recommending this place for a relaxing comfortable evening that includes satisfying food and really nice service. Thank you Three Below - we'll be back soon!

We live in Whistler, and this is the one restaurant our family visits time and time again.
Consistently warm welcoming smiley service. Your meal includes fresh breads, soup or salad, and good selection of great on-site freshly made pasta. Good luck saving room for their delicious desserts (tiramisu rates 5/5). Seating is limited, but often the line-up is for their popular take-out so don't be discouraged to arrive to a line-up...the wait is worth it. Be patient too locating the restaurant for the first time...it's around the back of the Marketplace IGA, next door to 7-11.
Looking for great value, great service, tasty food and a sincere welcome ambiance? See you at Pasta Lupino! Families welcome too!
