Good to hang out, but the coffee is not anything else. There are usually different art exhibitions, but nothing special. The cakes and scones are normal and expensive. The staff could be friendlier.

Home roasted coffee; absolutely wonderful! Also all home baked buns and pastry were really good. Location is lovely as well, along the banks of river Aura, however outdoor sitting was not comfortable because of lack of sun.

This is the place to go if you want some coffee in Turku, especially in summer time. Staff was friendly and they sell all sorts of cakes and pies.

Stopped into this cafe when on holiday from the US. All staff members were very helpful and had no problem speaking English. They even have us tips to explore the town. Coffee was some of the best I had and hey had tasty pastries, too. Plenty of seating (outside as well) with a relaxed ambiance.

Very nice atmosphere in a quiet cozy place by the river! You can grab a book in the 100m far library and relax in this cafe! The service was excellent and the cheesecake so good! I use to go there weekly when i'm in Turku:)

Art by name and art by nature. this small cafe overlooking the river Aura is a mecca for coffe lovers and provides a delightful outside setting among the trees. Many local inhabitants gravitate to this venue for refreshment while the presentation and patterns produced to decorate cups of cappuccino or macchiato certainly live up to the name.But don't be put...

It is an excellent choice, right next to the river. The desserts are very good but the coffee was moderate. Definitely one of the best places to relax!

We visited this cafe with friends. It is located right next to river Aura and has several different rooms with their own interiors. The tea and coffee were moderate and the cakes too sweet. After hearing so much good about this cafe I have to say we were a bit disappointed.
