The Old Spaghetti Factory

I don’t know about you, but I’ve haven’t met a kid who hasn’t like spaghetti in some form. Because of this, and their fantastic pricing, The Old Spaghetti Factory is one of the most popular family-friendly restaurants in Whistler. Not only are the dishes very well priced, but they all come with bread, soup or salad and ice cream or tea or coffee. That means you can feed the entire family on a budget. The restaurant itself is atmospheric with some classic interior design touches and they can accommodate large groups.

Crystal Hut

Why not treat your little ones to a very tasty snack after a morning of skiing? The Crystal Hut on Blackcomb has been whipping up some of the best waffles in Whistler for a long time now. This cozy little wood cabin overlooking ski runs is also one of the most scenic places to eat in Whistler. The waffles come stacked with lashings of delicious toppings. Almost too good to share! After you finish you’ll be ready to ski the rest of the day away.

Candied apples, creative chocolate creations and sweet syrups are all the flavour of the day at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
