Sister-in-law and I came to this coffee shop after skiing in the windy snowy condition whole day. I had the large cappuccino and siste in law had the caramel machioato (special order) and both were smooth and delicious. The outdoor seating was comfortable and perfect for relaxing and waiting for our hubbies to finish skiing and meet up with us.... More

If Whistler is having a cold snap and you are frozen to death because it was -20, and you NEED to get a warm beverage in your hand, Lift Coffee company is the closest to the bottle of the Whistler Gondola. It is warm inside, and they also have a heated patio. The coffee is good, the hot chocolate is... More

Worth the wait. Given its proximity to the gondola, skiers and snowboarders crowd in for a quality cup of java. The baked goods looked tasty but I simply had a Grande vanilla Latte (2 shots espresso) The "to go" cup had a nice bumpy cardboard skin and the plastic lid provided a unique smooth and comfortable sip. The artistic foam... More

Great capaccino. Decent pastries. But most interesting was the people watching as the local boarders and mountain staff grab a joe before work. Very close to Westin.

This is one of the best coffee shops in the village near the lifts. They have passable pastries as well. You can sit outside where they have lots of heaters. Not much seating inside though

Our party went here for a Sunday morning breakfast prior to riding. Ordered a combination of smoothies, breakfast wraps, coffees, and some pastries. All was satisfactory in terms of price and taste. It's not fancy, but it does the job, and the staff are very pleasant. They have a nice patio and it's a good location for pre-ski or pre-mtn... More
