Lovely mountain restaurant right on the slopes in Whistler. This is a good coffee stop - they do delicious cinnamon buns. Or stop for lunch - the chick pea stew is amazing. It gets busy if the weather is bad or cold as it is not huge, but worth the stop once seated. This is self service and is very... More

Stopped here with our instructor for a snack brilliant cinnamon buns and what views from the outside patio. Serves beer too in case you fancy a quick one during your ski down the mountain.

Smaller than the other on-mountain venues but more quiet and less crowded. Limited menu is perfectly adequate. Love the Moroccan stew and the cinnamon rolls.

The Chic Pea Great little hill cafe on the slopes at the top of the Garbanzo Express chair lift. Smell the cinnamon buns before you step inside makes them irresistible Well worth trying rather than the larger roundhouse if you are after a quick lunch stop (to maximise skiing time).

The Chic Pa does not get as busy as the main restaurants on the mountain so it is easier to get a seat and the food is good. The cinnamon buns are especially good!

But others love this place. It's almost got cult status with some. Yes they have the best cinnabuns but seriously how many of those can one person eat in a season. Chick pea stew is fine as are the other hearty stews, Mac and cheese is ordinary and I am not a pizza / calzone fan so always struggle to... More

Sneaky tip! If you visit here - it's the place for hot choc and whiskey on the slopes, and organise some bird seeds. The run it's located on has a big tree out the front - and if you have some bird seeds on your hand and hold out your arm - the gorgeous little birds will come say hello.

I know this will sound funny, as the other restaurants are fine on the mountain, but I love the fact that this is a little smaller and more cosy. I also love the fact that I don’t have to go down and upstairs in my ski boots to get to the loo. Food good.

First went to Whistler in 2005 and loved the Chic Pea then.... it is still good and nice cosy place with clean facilities to re-group, warm up and eat something nourishing before getting yourself sorted to go back out to ski. Love the Whiskey Jacks (little birds) on the sundeck, love the soups and love that this is not a... More

When skiing on Whistler, we always stopp for lunch at Chic Pea as they make the best cinnamon bus. The Cafe is also well situated near the Emerald chair which is easily accessible to all levels of skiing

A Mediterranean flavour featuring toasted signature sandwiches, pizza, a great outdoor BBQ, and a fabulous place for people watching. Located on Upper Whiski Jack on Whistler Mountain. Ski down from the top of the Garbanzo Chair, or soar on down from the top of the Whistler Village Gondola. Either way, this is a must do when skiing and riding on Whistler Mountain.
