Your Spectacular Squamish Brunch Guide

Brunch is a celebration of sleeping in and fuel for an afternoon of adventure. In a destination as beautiful as Squamish, it's easy to scramble your brunch plans and transform your morning meal into a soulful experience and reconnect with loved ones over a hearty stack of pancakes.

Where to Eat

Indulge at one of our local eateries and don't be afraid to order a morning beverage to accompany your meal; the 5 pm rule doesn't apply in mountain towns! 

*Please note that restaurants may have changed operating hours or certain menu items due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We recommend contacting them in advance to confirm their hours and menu.
