Ciao-Thyme Bistro Restaurant Review: Casual and comfortable describe this Whistler standby, which prides itself on using the best local ingredients. In summer, you can meet local farmers from your patio seat since the Whistler Farmers' Market takes place directly in front of the bistro. Coffee, killer cinnamon-pecan buns, smoked meat hash with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, and maple pork and beans with poached eggs will launch any day off with a hearty start. Lunch-goers may opt for a variety of organic salads, or a braised lamb and roasted garlic couscous wrap, or beef tagine. Signature dinner dishes include pan-seared salmon, and black pepper and thyme-crusted elk steak. A slice of lemon shortcake with Chantilly and lemon curd, or fresh-baked traditional apple pie with house-churned vanilla bean ice cream are must-try desserts. BC wines and beers dominate the ample beverage list.
