NV and I have a close friend who works at a hotel at Whistler, so we ventured up for a night to do some much needed serious catching.
The next morning (after too much wine on my part, of course) NV suggested we head to Elements for brunch - which turned out to be one of the best ideas we've had all trip.
Elements is not a big restaurant by any means, but the decor is cozy chic with orange paint and warm colour decors. We were seated beside two guys who looked like they had a late night and rough morning tumbling out of bed. Breakfast is served until 2pm, which is always a bonus!
Classic with Roasted Tomatoes ($10) - I love the fact that they put spices in my scrambled eggs. It really is the little things that takes things from being ordinary to extraordinary - that little extra ka-zaaz made all the difference. Maybe it's the artist in me talking, but I do appreciate little details... it makes me feel special. The roasted tomatoes were spiced and salted, a little too salty for my taste but quite good with bread and eggs. Instead of hash brown, Elements makes their own potato tartlet (which was a delicious cross between hash browns and potato quiche) served with chive sour cream.
Honey Ham and Brie Stuffed French Toast ($14) - talk about some fancy schmancy french toast! NV had this monster of a breakfast, served hot and drizzling with maple syrup. Since I don't eat meat, I snuck a piece of the edges - crispy, spongy, sweet. Looking at her brunch made me almost want to order my own...
I will definitely be visiting Elements next time I'm in Whistler. It makes me a little sad that this restaurant is so far away from Vancouver. Their lunch and dinner menu looks really good as well, expect more reviews on their food for my upcoming birthday visit to Whistler!
