Laurence and Michel Gagnon have united two countries in the shadow of Whistler's mountains. Open since 1997, their boutique creperie—which seats only 35 people—draws recipes from France and Switzerland to fill out its menu of light afternoon fare including spinach and strawberry salad, caesar salad with smoked bacon, and escargot.
Part of the blue-and-white venue's appeal is that its meals tend to be interactive. Diners can dunk their own meats and vegetables into a cheese fondue, covering morsels with imported Swiss Emmenthal and Gruyère cheese. Meat fondue enables you to cook your own bites of beef, pork, and prawns, whereas chocolate fondue submerges kiwis and strawberries in Belgian dark chocolate. Then, of course, there are the crepes—savoury variants stuffed with smoked salmon or lobster, vegetarian-friendly ones brimming with mushrooms, and sweet treats that can be flambeed with rum instead of watered-down lighter fluid. These tasty bites may be paired with equally delicious drinks; infused with a shot of rum, the shop's smoothies draw equally from the best qualities of fortifying apertifs and refreshing strawberry punches.
In addition to taking their meals in the cozy dining room, guests often dine within the sunny confines of the shop's outdoor patio. No matter where the food is served, Laurence and Michel stay close to help with the preparation, and during catered events, they craft all the dishes personally in front of guests.
