We heard the food was delicious so on our way through Whistler, we decided to make the stop. Such a great choice. The staff are very friendly and brought the food right to our table. Salmon is always the choice and we were not disappointed!...More

Excellently presented cafe on the ground floor of the cultural center. The food was delicious, I can't remember the name of the desert I sampled but it was fantastic!! Great cozy place to enjoy the ambience of the cultural center. Bravo!

I have eaten here several times for lunch or a mid-day snack and am always pleased with the freshness, flavour and appearance of the food. The cafe offers a modern take on traditional first nations food. And it seems that it is still one of...More

This restaurant specializes in fast food with an indigenous touch. The ambience is pleasant, and the products available for sale look inviting. I had some tasty coffee and a luscious Nanaimo bar. Recommended.

I'm so glad I chose the Thunderbird Cafe in the Lil'wat Cultural Centre for lunch in Whistler. Away from the summer heat, I enjoyed the Bannock Taco and wow! It was amazing. Great service in a neat setting, too!

I enjoy quality food ingredients and this little cafe offers just that. They have a small but varied menu with local and First Nations cultural inspiration. They are friendly, generous, quality, clean, and reasonable. I'd love to go again, but we were only in Canada...More

We had sampled First Nation food and it was absolutely delicious! Simple and basic but very tasty particularly the Bison Sausages.

Not much seating for this popular cafe in an interesting museum. The food is freshly cooked and good value, Salmon and Corn Chowder or Venison Chilli both with bannock bread being examples. The bannock to me seemed more like what we would call a doughnut...More
