My friends and I had lunch here today, it was delicious but the awesome theme was what struck me the most. It was like walking in to 1960's American diner. Definitely would recommend to visit while in whistler!

Had the bacon cheeseburger deluxe and it was really average, I don't think I'll order it again just to try other stuff in the menu, but the fries for sure will make me come back. I really want to try them in a Poutine!

This little restaurant is very close to Nita Lake Lodge (where we were staying) so we popped in for a morning to-go coffee (which was quite delightful) before heading out on the trails behind the lake right there. Little did I know I was going to get proposed to on those trails. Amazing!! :) Still walking-on-air we decided to go... More

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals and this place serves up the most amazing food with a great sense of humor. I had Eggs Benedict beyond compare conplete with homemade hollandaise sauce and the most delicious breakfast potatoes I've ever had---More Please!! Out of Village center but not to be missed. Terrific service as well.

We wanted a nice quick place for breakfast. The Southside Diner foot the bill. Don't expect five star food, but you do get a good hearty breakfast. The servers are nice with a smile and coffee.

It is truly diner style. Nothing special. The service was slow. It took over an hour to great our food.

Hi King L, You are correct, we are a diner! But when we are super busy with lines out the door, it does tend to take a while. Thanks for your patience and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers, The Diner Gang More

Good reviews on TripAdvisor led us to this casual place because it was a short walk from our hotel. We had expected to dine there every day but “once was enough!” The ambiance can best be described a “grubby”. It felt as if the place needed a good cleaning. The service was good but the food was barely edible. I... More

Hello Barrett, We're disappointed to hear your experience did not meet your expectations. We tend to get a lot of positive feedback, so it's a hard pill to swallow when you come out of the gate with "yuck". Of course, we are always striving to be better. We're glad you found the service to be good and the Pot Pie... More

You can visit the establishment either on your way in or out of Whistler. There might be a wait, but there is a perfect reason: THE BEST BRUNCH, or Breakfast or Lunch in town! No doubt about it! Eggs Benny (in-house made sauce) is simply outstanding! My personal kudos to the chef and staff! Well done guys... Well done!

We liked this place so much we went twice. Good Eggs Benedict. Friendly service, not too expensive, and non-pretentious.
