Traveling and having a dietary preference or restriction can be a nightmare! Many vacationers find themselves constantly repeating “Do you have a vegetarian or vegan option,” and often to no avail! It used to be that this request was considered uncommon, but current times have seen a growing trend in menus offering something for everyone, especially veggie options. In Whistler, vegan and vegetarian foods not only grace menus but are the basis of many of the local restaurants. Don’t worry about navigating this mountain town’s food scene, just pick from this list for your next vegan or vegetarian meal!
BEST ON HILL
Take a break from the slopes and visit Whistler Blackcomb’s first ever fully vegetarian restaurant. It’s also the first restaurant of its kind in a North American ski resort.

The Smoothie Bowl is your favorite smoothie blended with oats and topped with seeds, coconut flakes, goji berries and chia seeds. Go big and add honey!

Spicy Lentil burger has abundant flavor in every bite! Add sautéed mushrooms, onions, and guacamole for a flavor overload!
