The Best Winter Patios in Edmonton

Jan 12, 2023

Nothing says "Canadian" quite like embracing the winter weather on a cozy patio! In Edmonton, our year-round patios are perfect for chilling. Many of these outdoor dining options are equipped with heaters, blankets, or even fire pits to keep you cozy. Some even have tents or domes that provide a little extra shelter from the elements. There really is something magical about winter in Edmonton! Note, be sure to check with the individual businesses for availability on particularly cold days.

Odd Company

Conquer winter with a cold beer in hand! The patio at Odd Company Brewing in the Oliver Exchange Building is the perfect place to sip locally crafted brews as you take on the elements. Feeling a little chilly? Get yourself one of their fashionable toques to keep you warm. Small batch brews mean there's something new to try every time you visit, so stop in and knock back an inventive (and tasty) pint in the true spirit of the season!

Cafe Bicyclette

Do you speak French? No? Okay. Do you like French food? Good, because that’s all you need to enjoy Café Bicyclette. Situated in the French Quarter and specializing in French-country fare, Café Bicyclette is a pretty awesome place to visit in the winter. Plus, their menu is to die for. We recommend trying the Jardin Bicyclette or the Boeuf aux Milles Saveurs.
