Located in Creekside, this place offers super fast service and fantastic food. Had the Westcoast Benny and it was awesome, probably the best Benny I have ever had. Honestly can't remember what my hubby ordered but he loved it too. The service was really quick with great happy staff to boot. Make sure you abide by the "house rules". Very... More

Love this place for everything about it. It has remained the same over all these years and are still as awesome as I remember the first time coming here. I come here for breakfast/brunch. Servings are huge and food tastes really good.

Been to Whistler a million times but never stopped in to SD for breakfast until this week. What a cool little 'truck-stop' type place with mostly locals, counter seating and super friendly staff. Plus awesome breakfast and coffee.... had the huevos rancheros. Will return soon!

After experiencing slow service and overly priced meals at a nearby hotel, we dropped in to this nice place. The food was pretty good and the service was fast and friendly. A good bet while in Whistler

Great food and great service. The eggs benny are amazing and my husband loves the monte cristo. I also recommend the pink mimosa.

A friendly classic American-style diner, with good food and service. Could have stayed here all day just listening to the music!

BLETCH (a breakfast sandwich), Yummy!!! My husband had the eggs benny and really liked it. Very fun place to eat, and the humor is great...on the table, walls, etc. Wonderful greeting when we arrive, friendly place. The table next to us ordered the pot pie, wow I wish we had time to try that too.

Visited here from our nearby lodging at the Worldmark Sundance. Small and crowded, but seated prior to estimated wait time. Waitress had a good sense of humor and service very good. My veggie omelet was very good. Other 3 members of my party enjoyed their food as well. Coffee good. Prices reasonable. Recommend.
