I stopped in this café out of curiosity from the vibrant exterior. Everything smelled warm and inviting when I entered after the early morning rush. I took my time daydreaming over a travel magazine while I sipped my espresso coffee and ate a fantastic ciabatta breakfast sandwich (which I have since tried to duplicate at home, but not quite managed)....

The fresh roasted coffee makes a delightful espresso that invigorates the taste buds! I drink espresso every place I visit and this is some of the best I have tasted.

A great cup of coffee in a welcoming restaurant. Great coffee, great food and great people. The Trifecta! The next time you are thinking of spending $4 on a cup of coffee, save your money and come to this Café. Pick up a biscotti and you will still have change to spare. Please correct the address in YELP though. It... More

A group of friends decided to stop here for lunch after a work project. We arrived around 11:30 am and the six of us were able sit right away-small dining area. I ordered a iced tea and a Mediterranean Turkey Panini ($7.75). The tea tasted fresh brewed and the sandwich was fantastic. Roasted turkey, kalamata olives, pepperoncini peppers on a... More

I've eaten lunch here in the past but on this trip we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. I had the Mediterranean sandwich and added bacon and pepperoncini peppers which made it absolutely fantastic! I paired it with a delicious cup of their brewed coffee. These guys really know what they're doing! Whenever we visit our college student this is the first... More

The food has a greek flair (fila dough and feta with the quiche), a very creative menu and excellent coffee, roasted on premise. Just a very nice coffee shop atmosphere, lots of windows and light. Friendly owners and staff, what's not to like!

So so cute inside. The smells coming from the kitchen are of wonderment and very delightful. I enjoyed some very delicious coffee while we waited for our food. I had the most tastebud pleasing yogurt peppered granola fruit plate that completely satisfied every nutritional need as well as sight and smell. This is a hidden gem. Please visit. Even if... More

Stopped by last Saturday before going to the farmers market. This place is cute and cozy. The staff is friendly and helpful and their food and coffee are both great. My fiance and I are big fans of their breakfast sandwiches. They have a few outdoor seating options as well as cozy indoor tables. We plan on being frequent visitors.

I met a friend for lunch to catch up. We enjoyed our sandwiches and were not rushed to leave. We were able to linger and chat over an extra cup of coffee. I love giving my money to small family run businesses. Cafe De Arts is a great location.
