Whistler BC Canada Village – Crepe Montagne : Brunch
116-4368 Main Street
Whistler, BC V0N 1B4
(Next to the IHG Shopping Center)
So it was our last day and still wasnt’ able to find the famous waffle place in Whistler that I read about on an airline magazine. We did find it finally but I have to say something about tracking information in Whistller village – it’s hard to find things just by asking. I started with the concierge at the Westin and she suggested a bunch of places in the village and pushed booking reservations ( I guess that’s how she makes a living). To be fair, I somehow got the name mixed up with the Crytal Hut which is atop Blackcomb mountain. At the Whistler information booth where you would think they know everything, didn’t turn up any hot leads. Luckily we found a very informative and friendly staff member of a clothing store who happened to have lived in Whistler for over 10 years and identified the mysterious brunch place.
Crepe Montagne -Worth the trip!
So after about an hour after we ate at La Brasserie Des Artistes we found Crepe Montagne located behind the huge IHG shopping center in Whistler Village. The minute you walk in, we hit a wall of amazing aromas – mostly butter and sugar used to make the fresh crepes just over the low wall that separates the restaurant booths from the kitchen. I ordered a plate of the homemade waffles and Sing got a crepe suzette (w/ flambee’). We also had a hot chocolate which has a splace of grand marnier which can’t be beat. The waffles turned out to be good but a little chewy – I was expecting the doughy melting waffles that I’m used to at Petite Abeille in NY but you really can’t beat this in a nice cozy restaurant like Crepe Montagne. Also it’s called Crepe Montagne not waffle montagne so the reviewer in the airline mag got it wrong – I would definitely check out the crepes here. The flambee was especially enjoyable. I have a video which I hope to post to MSN Soapbox or youtube soon. . Overall definitely a great place to relax and check out on your way up to hitting the slopes at Whistler Blackcomb.
