Good café

Nice and well-located café on the picturesque Aurajoki river-bank. Coffee and cakes both were tasty. Maybe there could have been a bit more choice in the cakes, as the ones on offer were quite "usual". The place appears small but is actually quite big, with several rooms.

Best special coffees in Turku. Also cakes are nice. Just next to river, on summer you can sit outside on riverbank.

The baristas at café Art have won the Finnish Barista of the Year Championship title several times and with good reason. The owners of the café also own Turun Kahvipaahtimo coffee roastery so coffee is always made with the freshest of coffee beans. Also good options of brewed tea (black, green, white, rooibush) and hot chocolate (a sweeter one and... More

Cafe art is kind of legendary coffee place in Turku. Its always good, and especially if you go to sit out side, next to the river. The cakes and pastries is always tasty. There is also changing art pieces kind of like a gallery to see while sipping your fine coffee.

I had coffee and sandwich, but have also had cake earlier and everything has been very tasty. Atmosphere is pleasant and as there is several rooms available it is possible to have peaceful conversations without any disturbances

Great coffee, great service in a beautiful environment. Riverfront tables in the summer. Their pastries and cakes are tasty, too.

It is a nice café with delicious cakes and coffee - although it is not the cheapest option in Turku. The location close to the Aura river makes it a place not to miss! Recommended!

The rhubarb pie was excellent, too. Cappuccino was not only tasty but also beautiful. The staff is super attentive, so when I asked for some cinnamon, they came outside to the riverfront especially to bring it over - a very nice gesture.

My coffee-drinking friends say this locals favorite serves the best coffee in the Nordic countries. I'm a tea drinker and was happy with the tea they served. Also delicious pastries of all kinds, and a fun, pleasant atmosphere with seating inside and also outside along the riverbank in summer. Only fault is that the prices are a bit high compared...

The location is great and this place gets a lot of traffic. This also makes this place very busy most of the time. The coffee is good and so are the desserts.
