They source their beans from coffee from roasters who share their belief in sustainable coffee-growing practices. Mount Currie Coffee Company in Whistler has a lively atmosphere, delicious snacks & pastries, as well as local artists donning the walls with mountain-culture inspired paintings. You’ll not only love the delectable coffee but the authentic mountain vibe from the baristas and the atmosphere.
BReD, located in Creekside near our Lake Placid accommodations, is truly a unique spot for those who love the art of coffee and baking. BReD is a 100% vegan and organic sourdough bakery, serving up the most mouth-watering loaves, as well as coffee you can feel good about.

BReD also aims to source as locally as possible for their ingredients, meaning you’ll always be delighted by the fresh and seasonally relevant baked goods.

Lift Coffee is a locally owned, Whistler favourite that’s a common meeting spot for locals year-round. Conveniently situated at the base of Whistler Gondola, it’s the ideal spot to grab a coffee before or after ski or bike laps. Lift’s heated patio will also keep you nice and toasty during the Fall & Winter while you sip on a latte with your adventure buddies. Not only is their coffee delightful, but it’s one of our favourite spots for a grab-and-go sandwich before heading up the ski hill! If you’re more inclined to sit and savour your coffee & snack, the ample seating is great for larger groups.
The Bunker Whistler is a locally owned coffee house, tucked away near Nester’s Market Whistler. Their delicious coffee, pastries & sandwiches are a favourite for those who live in Whistler. The small coffee house is on the ground floor in the Nester’s shopping centre, and quite literally resembles a tiny bunker. This is the perfect spot to grab and go, or for a coffee date with a friend. You can either drive to Nester’s from the main village, or skip the car and take bus number 31 from Whistler Village and hop off at the Nester’s Mall stop. The rich coffee and homemade pastries are worth the detour!
