Whistler is well known for its high-end fare—and for the plethora of chain restaurants throughout the Village—but there are a handful of great casual places with a bit more personality. Ingrid’s Village Cafe (tel. 604/932-7000; www.ingridswhistler.com) on the Village Square is a local favorite for quality and price; it’s been around for over 20 years, making it one of Whistler’s oldest businesses. Right across from Ingrid’s, Citta Bistro (tel. 604/932-4177; www.cittabistro.com) is a favorite dining and night spot that serves thin-crust pizzas, gourmet burgers, and good appetizers. For excellent craft beer and casual food, try the family-friendly Whistler BrewHouse (tel. 604/905-2739; www.drinkfreshbeer.com), located just over the creek in Village North. Equally fun indoor dining can be had at the Dubh Linn Gate Old Irish Pub (tel. 604/905-4047; www.dubhlinngate.com) in the Pan Pacific Mountainside hotel. The Gate offers pub classics like Irish corned beef and shepherd’s pie, as well as live music.
