Learn more about the Blue Chair

Casual, eclectic and electric.

The Blue Chair has been an integral part of Edmonton's restaurant community since 2004. A colourful and warm environment welcomes you the moment you enter the doors.

During the daylight hours, a large bank of south facing windows allows for plenty of sunshine, and we now boast a patio if your tastes lean to the outside as you enjoy coffee, lunch or a snack with friends. Feel free to bring your laptop — we have complimentary wi-fi access.

Weekdays at 7 am, the doors open to the smell of bacon and coffee. We offer an early-bird special until 8:30, but our great breakfast, daily hot specials, light entrées, home-made soup and sandwiches are served until 3pm.

In the evenings it's a cozy and comfortable place to spend quality time with friends. We have a full bar that offers cocktails, draft or craft beer and a nice selection of wine by the glass or bottle.

Our food is always eclectic and worldly. The tastes come from wherever in the world our inspirations lie, or based on our kitchen's expertise — our chef Daniel brings an authentic Peruvian flavour to your table!

On Saturday and Sunday mornings it's the smell of maple bacon that hits you as you enter for brunch. 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.  

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 our seats has an excellent sightline to the stage. Half of the room is on an elevated floor, and includes 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.
