Forget breakfast and head here after a couple of runs for waffles... syrup, mixed berries, chocolate and loaded with whipped cream. Better ski/board all day! Get here before the lunch crowd though... can be "hectic" around lunch!

Popped in for an afternoon waffle which did not disappoint. The waffles were exceptional; the hot chocolate came from a self-service machine which was slightly odd but it was actually surprisingly good. The service was fantastic. Efficient and friendly. Definitely worth a visit for breakfast at any point in the day

One of the Blackcomb hosts recommended this to us and so we made a beeline for here after braving the glacier. It was really busy, and we had to wait for a seat, but once we got in, the waffles were ordered and it was pretty great. Worth a stop!

With good wine, good hot chocolate and Baileys, very nice soup and cheesy bread, and friendly staff. We kept popping in here! It gets pretty busy and you need to be friendly with whoever is squeezed in next to you, but well worth it!

When your thighs are burning and the fresh snow has turned to rain, drop in to this cosy hut and order a fully loaded waffle, piled with berries, whipped cream , maple syrup and chocolate . Delicious ! The guys serving are great. If only they served espresso coffee, then it would be just perfect .

Recommended by friends, we made our way to the hut from the Glacial Express elevation (a shorter route available via Jersey Cream) for Sunday brunch. The hut has limited seating but stunning views from the balcony. It was very busy and the waffle aroma is amazing. A little too much whipped cream but didn't stop creating clean plates - very...

This hut is a warm place to stop if you are in the mood for amazing waffles. The waffles come with lots of weep cream, chocolate and berries. The little hut is crowded mid-day, so stop by mid-morning or after 2pm at the end of your ski day. Just remember, do not plan any aggressive skiing after that!

Great place if you are after a sweet lunch, but other food other than the waffles on offer. Nice atmosphere, warm and great food. Try it.
