In summer, the entire patio is open to bask in the sunshine. Mountain bikers love to meet at Lift Coffee Co. before heading up to the bike park. It’s a great place to spot some of the world’s best riders during Crankworx. In winter the covered part of the patio is heated and makes for a cozy spot for a hot chocolate!

Moguls Coffee House

Moguls in probably Whistler’s most famous café thanks to its fantastic location, fun staff, giant cookies and tasty coffee. Moguls is located in Village Square in Whistler, between The Grocery Store and Rexall. It’s a small café that's designed for the grab-and-go kind of person. They feature local artists work on the walls, great music and one of the best people watching spots in Whistler from their patio.

You can drink your coffee at the large, communal, wooden tables and flick through their collection of books about cabins, the outdoors and camping. Or if the sun is shining, you can head out the back door and relax on their tranquil, concrete patio complete with water feature.

Mount Currie Coffee Co.

The most decorated café in Whistler. Decorated with awards that is, the decor is actually quite run of the mill. Mount Currie Coffee Co. serves Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters, not only because of the great taste but also because they work closely alongside the farmers and operate in a responsible manner.

Mount Currie Coffee Co. began in Pemberton, in the shadows of Mt. Currie. Having won the ‘Best Latte in Pemberton’ award for seven years in a row they opened a café in Whistler and swiftly won the ‘Best Coffee’ award here. The café itself features a high seating area beside the windows. This makes for a great spot to cozy up with a coffee, newspaper and watch the world go by.
