2019-13 || THE WILDFLOWER

Escaped the tedium of everyday life with a mini get away to Whistler this weekend. The snow at the end of this season is still tolerable, whereas previous seasons, dirt patches would have already been peeking out. H tried skiing for the first time, and while he stayed mainly in the learning areas, he still worked up a large appetite. 

We decided to visit The Wildflower for breakfast buffet on Saturday morning to recover all the calories that we all burned on the slopes the day before.



We arrived just after 10AM, and there were still a few other guests waiting for a table, so we got in line and after 5 or 10 minutes, we were invited into the dimly lit restaurant. The hostess lead us around the buffet area, showing us the fresh pastries, the mini cereal bar right across from it, the smoothie bar, the omelette station... etc.! We were drooling by the time the hostess seated us at our table, and did not wait for our server to introduce himself. 

Here's H's first plate of food, including pork belly, eggs benedict, English sausage, beans, mushrooms, and a bit of smoked salmon on the edge:


I need their recipe for their spinach and apple smoothie (see photo above). 

The smoked salmon was on point, and we probably ate the value of the $36 meal just in smoked salmon alone: 



The chef at the omelette station was still on duty by the time H was ready for his 2nd plate of food, and he chose to stuff his omelette with all types of cheese and lots of veggies. I'd suggest asking for no goat cheese or a small amount, as it overpowered all the other types of cheese that H chose to throw into the mix:


The highlight was their selection of pastries, which I saved for dessert at the end of the meal: 



Their chocolate donut reminded me of Honey's in Deep Cove. Other than these 3 pieces that I managed to polish off, they had many other cake options, including one or two that were already finished off for the day, such as the banana bread. I'll have to come earlier next time to see their full selection of daily fresh pastries, which are made in house by their pastry chef who trained in Dubai.

I'm not waiting until the end to have the donuts next time, because they ran out of one of the flavors. Maybe this is a lesson in life, to not wait until the end of the meal for dessert, and perhaps the best things don't come to those who wait.
