Rise and Shine with Whistler's Best Breakfast Spots

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and when you're in Whistler, (about two hours from Vancouver) your body will likely agree. Whether you're hitting the slopes, racing down bike trails, or taking to one of the local rivers, starting your day with a solid meal is essential for endurance.

While Whistler is known for the great outdoors, its also known as a great place to party. When you're in need of a little sustenance after a night out, there's nothing better than a hearty breakfast at Southside Diner. The breakfast poutine sounds crazy (and maybe it is), but if you're in the mood to throw caution to the wind, order it. This rich dish is loaded with potatoes, eggs, hollandaise, gravy, cheese and meat. If you're keeping things light, options like oatmeal and yogurt are available.

For something quick and casual, head to Purebread. All you need to do is follow your nose and you'll find this decadent bakery. While the display is jaw-dropping and the smells are incredible, the flavor of these buttery baked goods are next level. It's easily Whistler's best bakery.

When your body's telling you it needs some real nourishment, head to The Green Moustache. It's here that you can start your day with cold-pressed juices and healthy breakfast bowls that are loaded with grains and fruit.
