History and great cuisines.
The Rimrock Cafe has been a feature of Whistler Village for over 25 years.

Their fresh and innovative food draws heavily on game and fish dishes, and they put special emphasis on preparation from only the freshest of ingredients. This unique local dining experience can’t be missed!
