Top Whistler Bakeries for Cold Winter Days
It's getting cold out there! February in Whistler is looking chilly & to help you keep warm and cozy, we've lined up the top bakeries you can duck into to regroup when you've been outside for too long.
Warm up in a Cozy Whistler Bakery
1. Pure Bread Purebread Whistler is rated number one on Trip Advisor, but we really found out how well loved this bakery at the beginning of the season, when it was caught in the Tyndall Stone Lodge fire. At the end of November, a fire broke out in the building. Pure Bread was damaged in the blaze, and the community in Whistler came out to support the bakery and offer support as it tried to reopen.
People love this place, and for good reason. One visitor recently tweeted that the coffee was the best she had had in all of North America. The bakery is holding a contest right now called #picturesofindulgence, where guests post a pic of themselves with pastries from the bakery...and the results are mouthwatering.
2. Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory One of the best things about the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is that they let (encourage) you to taste before you buy. They have some of the best chocolate anywhere, made on site so the smell of chocolate permeates the shop. There's also a full bakery, and it is located right in the heart of the village buy the Olympic Plaza. Stopping by here for a hot chocolate before the legendary Fire and Ice show is a great idea.
3. Peaked Pies Looking for a piece of Australia in Whistler? It looks like Peaked Pies is the place to find what you're looking for. Great meat savoury pies, reasonable prices and fun relaxed atmosphere make this a popular stop to warm up on a cold day. We've read mixed reviews about the sweet pies, but definitely, rated as the fourth best restaurant in Whistler, you're not going to go wrong warming up here.
4. Blenz Coffee Located in Whistler Village, but closer to the Markeplace Lodge than Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, you'll be glad to have another place to tuck in for an excellent hot chocolate. The pastries here are decadent, too. The staff is friendly, and the coffee is also some of the best in Whistler. This is easily the place the locals go for a cuppa and to meet friends. Less busy than Starbucks, with a warm, inviting atmosphere.
5. Gone Bakery This one is a "hidden gem" -- It's been around for a long time (by Whistler standards) but has never stood out in the limelight. Rather, it is known to locals as a quiet place to have an inexpensive full breakfast or lunch, including wraps, soups, omelettes, etc. Located behind the bookstore, this is the place to go if you want a quiet spot to read your new book.
