Convenient and good coffee right by the whistler gondola. Amazing coffee but a little manic in the morning for the first few hours once the gondola opens.

In the past, we used to love the Lift Coffee Co for breakfast. This year, it was just okay. They don't seem to offer as many options for food, but our breakfast burritos were tasty and the help was nice. The food came out quickly.

We stopped in Lift around 10:30 on a Sunday. The coffee was pretty good. The hot chocolate was not very good-not much flavor. The steak and egg wrap tasted good, but the middle was too cold to eat. We also bought a cinnamon roll and it came in a paper bag with cinnamon goo all over it. It was cold.... More

Good coffee and makes a great change from a Starbucks. It has a great feel to the place with sofas out the back. Staff were very friendly. However I had a breakfast croissant and it was burnt black. To the point where the guy cooking it could not have missed the fact, but he put it in a bag and... More

Reasonably priced coffee place. Local so at least you are supporting the local economy. Sit outside on the covered patio

After finishing your ski day head to the Lift Coffee Company to grab a coffee or hot chocolate. Smooth, rich, well made coffee and luscious peppermint hot chocolate will delight you. Grab a stool or use the old chair lift seat to people watch!

This place still serves up the best coffee in Whistler. Smooth, perfect temperature and not over priced. Food is also available as is wifi, outdoor seating is also available and it has heating. Best place to watch the gondola queue shrink if it is a busy morning.

stopped for coffee while waiting for lift queue to die down, staff appeared pissed off/not to like tourists. Long wait and coffee was disappointing.
