Description: Located in Blom Street adjacent to the P. J. Olivier Art Institute and against Checkers parking area inStellenbosch with easy access from the Braak. The rustically renovated venue under a Bedouin tent with a fireplace , great coffee and a simple yet varied menu giving good value for money in a comfortable setting. The theme of classic movies, art and music are combined with good personal service and neat surrounds.The theme and decor are inspired by the thoughts and interests of the owners for music , art , classic films , simple food and rustic structures combined with the idea of offering locals with similar interests a venue to meet and interact. By means of constant exposure we hope to determine and adapt to the changing needs of patrons while retaining the basic theme and atmosphere of Cafe Art. All suggestions to improve or vary what we offer will be considered and if viable, be implemented. We can comfortably offer functions for as few as 10 people to as many as 150.

Hungry but not famished? Want a quick bowl of soup or a terrific little sandwich? Coffee, tea? Five minutes (really) of free wi-fi. This is the place for you. We both had soup and bread. Left very happy. Service is quick. On a cool day they supply blankets on the chairs. For what it is, its remarkable.

Cafe Art is a relaxing, friendly place with caring, attentive owner and staff. Best coffee / cappuccino's and lunch time steak braai's in the greater Stellenbosch region, at a very affordable price for locals. Foreign visitors can have an authentic South African dining experience with potjiekos and/or a braai.

Highly recommended for tourists and locals!

I'm intuitively drawn to places that accentuate my mood instead of interfering with it. Cafe Art has never let me down with it's homely, bohemian ambiance, world-class coffee and breakfast special offerings.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they've diversified their lunch menu to include chilli con carne served in a tortilla basket.

Thankfully, the quality of this meal outdid it's enticing presentation with a tasty ground beef & bean stew on bed of fluffy rice with coriander garnishing infusing the tortilla basket with a wholesome culinary presence. Once I added the grated cheese, salsa, cream cheese and avocado I felt like a culinary Picasso with no desire to exhibit my artwork for longer than it takes for cutlery to gravitate to plate.

I felt satisfied and energized for the rest of the day without the post-lunchtime lethargy that often comes standard with most main courses. Highly recommended!
