Learn more about the Blue Chair Café and our business

Casual, eclectic and electric.

The Blue Chair Cafe has been an integral part of Edmonton's restaurant community since 2004. A colourful, eclectic, environment makes you feel welcome the moment you enter the doors.

By day, you enter to the smell of bacon and coffee. We open at 7 am., with a great breakfast, then daily hot specials, sandwiches and soup for lunch. 

In the evenings it is a cozy and comfortable place to spend quality time with friends sharing delicious food and wine. Our food is always eclectic and worldly, offering the tastes of wherever in the world our inspirations come from or our kitchen's expertise brings along.

ON Saturday and Sunday mornings for brunch that smell of maple bacon hits you the moment you walk in the door. Enjoy our chipotle hollandaise sauce on the variety of Eggs Benny, our famous banana bread french toast, or the best home-made pancakes in town with real maple syrup.  

During the day, a large bank of south facing windows allows for plenty of sunshine to enjoy a coffee, lunch or snack with friends or work on your laptop with complimentary wi-fi access.

On Friday and Saturday evenings the Chair takes its place as one of Canada's premier live music venues. Top touring acts, as well as notable local bands and musicians take the stage, offering a a unique opportunity to have a wonderful dinner and a show all in one neat package.

Every one of the 75 seats has an excellent sightline to the stage. Half of the room is on an elevated floor, with some taller tables that allow for an excellent view — from wherever you sit. Acoustics are excellent everywhere in the room, even from the seats at the bar.

The decor is colourful and decidedly bohemian. But don't let that fool you, the food is world class. Our kitchen is passionate about its "from scratch" nature, and our ethnic dishes are true to form. With a menu inspired by Harold's world travels and a stage that sees some of the best artists from across Canada and around the world, the Blue Chair is sure to provide a memorable evening out. Authentic, fresh food, and live music.
