Crepe Montagne Restaurant Review: Crepe Montagne is a creation of Laurence and Michel Gagnon, who have offered Whistler-ites and visitors the tastes of France with warmth and friendliness since 1997. Line-ups are common, especially at breakfast as guests fuel up before hitting the slopes for a day of skiing, boarding or mountain biking. Choice morning fare includes the hearty 2010 crêpe (a shout out to the 2010 Winter Olympics that were held in Whistler) of three eggs and ham or Canadian bacon smothered in cheese and tomatoes. Lunch and dinner feature heartier options such as traditional French onion soup and escargots, and a hot goat cheese salad. Swiss and vegetarian Raclettes are popular, as are fondues such as the Provençale prepared with Swiss Appenzeller and Gruyère, Canadian Emmental, roasted garlic, dry white wine and Kirsch. Save room for a sweet crêpe such as the Suzette, a butter/sugar version flambéed with Grand Marnier, Cointreau, Kirsch or Calvados. Or enjoy the Belle Jane, a combination with applesauce/cinnamon, caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Fresh-squeezed juices and smoothies, plus inventive seasonal cocktails (strawberry is always winner), local beers including a Whistler brew or two, and a focused wine list round out the drink options. Service is smooth and relaxed. And, yes, there is mulled wine, perfect for après ski relaxing.
