Fuel up for the Hills at Whistler's Best Value Restaurants

A weekend in Whistler is definitely one for the books, and with all that there is to do there, the dollar signs can add up pretty quickly. Stay on budget with these restaurants that pack both flavor and value.

When you want something comforting, quick, and affordable, head to Peaked Pies. These Aussie meat pies are loaded with hearty ingredients and all cost under $10. For a few bucks more, you can make it a meal and add mashed potatoes, mushy green peas and gravy. Made from scratch every day, these pies are just what the doctor ordered after a morning on the slopes.

Whether you're carb loading the night before a day of activity or filling up after, there's nothing more satisfying than homemade pastas and sauces. Locals love Pasta Lupino's delicious food, casual environment (great for families), and affordable price point.

For something healthy and filling, check out The Green Moustache. Here, you'll enjoy freshly pressed juices, salads and smoothie bowls. This vegetarian cafe loads each dish up with plenty of fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds so you've got the stamina to get back out for a few more rides.

When you're looking for value, you need look no further.
