Crepe Montagne
Authentic French Crepery.
Crepe Montagne.
Main St. - Village North.

It features waffles, smoothies, fresh juices and sundaes, but is really home to traditional French savory and dessert crepes.

Special to Whistler the quaint and casual atmosphere of the Crepe Montagne cranks out tremendous value.

Stopping by for French gratinated Soup is a local obsession that naturally leads to a sprite baby greens salad.

A Smoked Sockeye Salmon, Capers and cream cheese salad is a simple meal on its own. Fresh tomatoes, julienne of Emmenthal, hard boiled egg and Black Forest ham join in.

VERDICT:

Raclette and Beaujolais-Village are an experience to appreciate.

All the breakfast, lunch and dinner fare at the Crepe Montagne is tasty and special to Whistler.

The wait staff are tidy, personable, friendly and offer a menu more substantial than what one might imagine.
