During the summer months in Whistler, weekends and weekdays alike are abuzz with exciting excursions as locals and tourists dive deep into mountain biking, hiking, and kayaking, to name a few.
In the midst of all that activity, it’s important to stay well nourished and fuelled up for the next adventure on the list, which is why we’ve curated the best places for “Grab and Go” lunches in and around Whistler—bon appétit!
Fresh-baked home of the mogul muffin, Mogul’s Coffeehouse located at Village Square serves up great coffee, baked goods and light meals that you can take with you wherever you’re going!
You might be familiar with The Green Moustache as they have a few locations in the Sea to Sky and B.C. area. Located in Whistler Village on Lorimer Rd., this is a great go-to spot for healthy, nutrient rich food that’s as good for you as it is tasty. Hit it up for a mid-day snack and choose from their wide variety of bowls, smoothies, cold-pressed juices, salads and more.

Fat Tony’s is a hot spot serving up hot pies for locals and visitors of Whistler. With two locations in the area, you can get freshly made pizza with sesame seed crust, innovative toppings and dough that’s made in-house, any time—on your way back from the trails or en route to the next destination.
For those looking for something different from the regular breakfast sandwich and coffee combo, Main St. Noodles offers a great selection of pad thai, satay, curry and more. If you’re really in a hurry, you can order online and arrange for pick up to save time.
