The waffles at the crystal hut never disappoint. The staff are great too. It can be hard getting a seat inside around 10.30 but it is worth the squeeze in. On a sunny day sitting outside is beautiful. Make sure you go here if you...More

While skiing Blackcomb mountain I stopped at this tiny log cabin perched at almost 6000 feet overlooking the valley below. I had the turkey chili which uniquely included a scoop of mashed potatoes and a nice hunk of crusty bread. Perfect quick ski break with...More

If you don't do anything else have a waffle. Go early before the line-up. Just something about the hut - - so cozy, so friendly, - - a special place you can dream about for years to come. - - - or have nightmares that...More

This is a pleasant hut on the Blackcomb side, which seems to specialise in waffles. The hut is crowded with lots of tables packed in, without a huge amount of space between the tables. There's reasonable turnover so after a short wait, you'll usually get...More

My daughter recenlty found out she is celiac, and thought she'd never eat a waffle at teh Crystal Hut again. We went in with friends, and she was planning on having a drink, when she realized they had gluten free waffles. Being celiac she knows...More

That is a very nice hut with a perfect service. At noon it's a very crowded place but it's worth to wait. The menu is not that huge but the meals are very delicious. You have to taste the chili or the soup. Great! Go...More

The waffles here are insanely good. This is a MUST DO if you are visiting Whistler. When I went it was about 10 in the morning, I would block out an hour of your time skiing to enjoy this place. Seating can be hard to...More

Forget breakfast and head here after a couple of runs for waffles... syrup, mixed berries, chocolate and loaded with whipped cream. Better ski/board all day! Get here before the lunch crowd though... can be "hectic" around lunch!

Popped in for an afternoon waffle which did not disappoint. The waffles were exceptional; the hot chocolate came from a self-service machine which was slightly odd but it was actually surprisingly good. The service was fantastic. Efficient and friendly. Definitely worth a visit for breakfast...More

One of the Blackcomb hosts recommended this to us and so we made a beeline for here after braving the glacier. It was really busy, and we had to wait for a seat, but once we got in, the waffles were ordered and it was...More
