Pique Newsmagazine Best of Whistler 2014 – Every year Whistler locals vote for their fav’s.
The vote wasn’t as tight as last year when Wildwood and Elements tied for top spot in this category, but the results were proof positive that morning diners are appreciating what Dixon and his team are doing.
“We take a lot of time to make sure we’re providing good value and quality food for a fair price, and that sells itself,” he said.
While Wildwood’s Function Junction haunt is something of a hidden gem, the second location just moved from its spot at the Whistler Tennis Club to a prime village location in the basement of the Crystal Lodge. See Pique Best of 2014 complete list
