Culina Cafe at the Muttart
Culina is a restaurant located inside the Muttart Conservatory in Edmonton, Alberta. The Muttart Conservatory itself is made up of four glass pyramids, where guests can experience four distinct climates. In the center of these pyramids, is Culina, the conservatory café.
All of the herbs used in Culina are grown right inside the conservatory itself, which is a great way to point to the freshness of the food. Culina serves a collection of soups, salads, sandwiches and fresh baked goods along with craft beer and wine by the glass. Get there early though, because Culina opens and closes with the conservatory.
Lunch: Monday - Friday: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm;
Dinner: Thursday and Wednesday Night ONLY : 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Always good food here - I guess the evening was busy and there was a lot of shuffling of tables and found it a bit noisy. Is a little quieter during my usual forays around lunch.
Special Christmas menu was outstanding. Will definitely return !
Girls lunch out and it was perfect!
The food is always fresh, very tasty and flavourful.
I love that Culina is authentic and the service is really good.
We were in on a Sunday for brunch. The food and service were good, but for the price, comparatively speaking, it was a little too cramped and noisy. It felt like eating in a cafe with higher end dining prices.
Great food and awesome service
A comfortable room. We had a cosy corner away from the entrance to the Muttart Conservatory. The winter borscht was a highlight and hit the spot on a cold day. Chicken breast on flatbread with cheese, tomato, and Muttart pesto was very good, and the club sandwich was enjoyed by another member of the party. Ideal spot for lunch before heading in to see the displays in the pyramids.
Went for a date with my lady friend, it was quiet, and romantic. The food was delicious, and the staff were great. A little busy, but all went well.
We have dined at Culina many times and have always been very satisfied
Great brunch get together with out of town friends.
Wonderful place for lunch. Food and service are always good. Sorry, this place will be closed during the work being done on the Muttart.
My sister and I really enjoyed our visit to the Muttart Gardens and we finished our tour with a lovely lunch at Culina. The service was outstanding. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient and extremely accommodating. We shared the eggs Benedict and the grilled corn bread. Both were delicious. The eggs were done perfectly and the hollandaise sauce was one of the best I've had. The grilled corn bread comes with two large grilled pieces and some delicious berry butter. I would highly recommend both if these dishes. The only drawback was the noise from the construction happening at the gift shop. It seems they are doing a large reno there. It really didn't detract from our pleasant visit much. Looking forward to next time.
Came for brunch. Food was excellent. Well presented.
I liked the beer tasting from local breweries. Analog Brewing has some good beer expamples.
We met with guests from out-of-town for Sunday brunch. The menu offered a good selection of options and I had classic Eggs Benedict. The dish was very well put together, and I would definitely return either to have this again or to try another menu item.
Overall we were satisfied. The location is great and the food different from standard cafe fare.
The soup was warm at best and cold in places.
The stew was just warm and had bits of some vegetable that had contained "woody" pieces that had to be discarded.
Amazing as always!!!
I have always enjoyed this restaurant. I ordered the green salad as I often do. They have changed it recently and it isn't as good.
However, the rest of the meal was great.
Not sure why people would want to give it a bad rating. I can't wait to go back.
Food was good. A bit noisy and service could have been better.
I always enjoy my meal at Culina However your web system is VERY frustrating
This is our second time at Culina and it's wonderful as always. The food is impeccable and ingredients are always fresh. This place never disappoints!
It was a bit disappointing - they rolled out their new menu the day we were there and didn’t have supplies to make one of the seasonal drinks. The borscht was good, the corn bread was blackened, and the vegan cheesecake was dry and had a far from smooth texture. The service was good but I don’t know that I loved the whole experience. In general, I’m still trying to figure out why people rave about it
This one of my favourite restaurants in the city. The food is delicious and always changing with some of the favourite dishes still available. The service is excellent During the warmer months the patio is a very popular spot to sit and enjoy your meal.
A go to place for my friends and myself. We always enjoy our meal. The service is always great. It is simply a comfortable place to go.
Really like Culina. Sometimes the noise level is too high.
this is not fine dining it is simple tapas inmus eum location if you enjoy tapasgo for it
I found this lil restaurant uniquely fits the ambiance of the wonderful Mutrart Conservatory. Unique combinations of food with a fantastic indoor/outdoor dining experience. What a great time to have.
This is a great location for lunch when visiting the Muttart. The menu has a good selection for vegetarians & servings are a good size. Reservations definitely recommended. Free parking & wheelchair accessible.
This was my first visit to Culina's Muttart location. The menu had some unique dishes that is a Culina tradition and as usual the food was very good. All of the lunch selections were very reasonably priced and the service was exceptional.
good service. our reserved table was a good one, by the window. like the addition of the lamps, which give a cozy ambience. The food was wonderful. Coffee is strong and a bit bitter, to my taste.
Waitress was lovely but food took a long time to be served
Love this place! Great homemade food.
Best for brunch or lunch. Tapas are small servings but tasty. Wonderful happenings at The Muttart bring patrons.
Items were being served to other tables that were not on the menu!!
Do you need to “be in the know” to get them.? Even the soup was not offered until we saw it on another table.
The food was delightful and filling. Had the chicken salad with the dill dressing and the bacon and tomato sandwich. This was followed by the caramel pudding, all of which were scrumptious!
The staff could be more friendly in my opinion. Waitress with the dark/black hair is consistently rude and unapproachable. I go to culina often and this is a theme with her. I cross my fingers each time she doesn’t have to serve or interact with us.
Overpriced waste of money, the $12 muffin desert was a joke and service was terrible.
It was a great venue and the food and service were exceptional!
