Inspired by traditional Scandinavian and French cuisine, Café Linnea fuses familiar bistro fare with locally sourced ingredients.

Café Linnea is the passion project of chef and owner Kelsey Johnson. Her intention? Respect—
for the produce, the process and the people involved in bringing quality food to table. We are committed to reflecting our community’s rich growing tradition with an ever-changing menu galvanized by the seasons and in support of our farmers.


Café Linnea is located in Holland Plaza at 10932 119 Street NW, Edmonton, AB, Canada. There is free parking in the lot directly in front of our restaurant (east facing), or at the side (north facing), both of which are accessible from 119 Street.

Breakfast & Lunch—For weekday brunch services we have a select number of tables available for reservations and we still leave most of the restaurant open for walk-ins. We do not take reservations for weekend brunch and lunch, except for large groups (6 or more). Groups of 6–10 may reserve our private dining room during regular business hours. Please note that a gratuity of 18% will be applied to the bill for groups of 6 or more. For groups larger than 10 or to inquire about a special event please email us at 

Dinner—We take reservations for half of our tables during evening service, and leave half of them open for walk-ins. Because of our limited number of tables, we do recommend that large groups (over 5) make a reservation. Groups of 6–10 may reserve our private dining room during regular business hours. Please note that a gratuity of 18% will be applied to the bill for groups of 6 or more. For groups larger than 10 or to inquire about a special event please email us at
