Photolog: Cafe Linnea Winter Menu

written by Cindy February 4, 2017
Cafe Linnea launched a new winter menu earlier in January. The Scandinavian-French inspired dishes have me swooning. I don’t mind a longer winter if this means the menu will stay. Recommendations: Smoked Pot Pie and Warm Winter Salad.
Cafe Linnea: Creamy Seed and Oat Porridge

Creamy Seed and Oat Porridge

Creamy Seed & Oat Porridge Topped with house-made peach preserves and a side of cream.

Cafe Linnea: Cinnamon and Cardamom Bun

Cinnamon and Cardamom Bun

Cinnamon & Cardamom Buns with house-made butter. One of my favourites: smaller portions, fluffy layers and a good balance between cinnamon and cardamom. Perfect to share or to take home.

Cafe Linnea: Warm Winter Salad

Warm Winter Salad

Warm Winter Salad Carrots, beets and fennel with house-made ricotta, whey gastrique and fresh sprouts. Makes you wonder why salads get such a bad reputation because this is one the best salads in the city. Colours so bright you wonder if it’s actually paint on canvas, light airy ricotta, and microgreens.

Cafe Linnea: Smoked Chicken Soup

Cafe Linnea: Smoked Pot Pie

Cafe Linnea: Smoked Pot Pie

Smoked Pot Pie

Smoked Pot Pie Smoked chicken & pork loin, fresh peas & carrots in a cream sauce, topped with a pastry lid and a poached egg. Served with a side of greens. Impressive presentation with a domed pie crust, balancing a poached egg. I’m okay with the absence of potatoes, the pot pie filling as is without feeling weighed down. Best thing to order from Cafe Linnea’s winter menu.

Cafe Linnea: Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs Ground pork & beef seasoned with allspice and nutmeg, served with creamy mashed potatoes, pickled cucumbers & coffee gravy.
