We stopped in Squamish on our way from Vancouver north for a day trip to get some breakfast. It was a sunday morning at 9am and we got a seat within 1minute. The restaurant was full and it took quiet a while until we got the ordered food but the waiting was worth it. Fresh, tasty, beautiful arranged food. Perfect... More

I'm a USA East Coast/West Coast guy, so I ordered a hot pastrami sandwich, thinking it would be New York deli-style: rye bread piled high with sliced meat. What I got was a reuben: sourdough bread with Russian dressing, sauerkraut, and the meat sort of piled to one side. Once I re-calibrated my tastebuds, re-centered the pastrami on the bread,... More

We looked for a breakfast place after a cold wet night of camping. The review were good so we gave it a whirl. But lined up when we arrived but the place moves people pretty fast so short wait (15-20 minutes) but really worth it food was really good. The place is clean and spread out. They could fit more...

We come here every time we regularly visit Squamish and we are never disappointed. Very fresh, local, generous portions and reasonably priced. My husband is the classic bacon and egg kind of breakfast person, whereas I am vegetarian, gluten, and egg white sensitive. Makes for a challenge, but Big D's makes us both happy. Every time. I have the homemade... More

The food is real, no frozen or microwave want a bees. This food is fantastic! The service is fast and professional. The place gets packed on the weekends and as it should be. If you have to wait no big deal. They will get you in and get you out.

After several horrible breakfast experiences in Squamish, we were glad to find this place. Clean, nice service, fast, well priced, excellent food quality. I had the 3 egg omelet, with homemade multigrain toast and nicely presented fresh fruit. Quality ingredients, fresh & appetizing plating. All round, did the breakfast job perfectly :) High recommend this place especially given the lack... More

We had lunch here one day and breakfast another we were so impressed with the good food, good prices, good location and good service. Lots of variety on the menu. Service... More
