At the Aura river

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.

Cafe latte was excellent. Cinnamon buns were slightly dry, overcooked perhaps? Big place with a couple adjoining rooms. Not too atmospheric.

Excellent place to have a cup of coffee and enjoy the Turku riverside. Situated right next to the Aurajoki river, Cafe Art is an atmospheric and enjoyably comfy place to grab a pastry and some award winning coffee. They roast their own beans and use proper time to craft the finest cup 'o joe that side of the river. Highly... More

The baristas draw beautiful patterns in you cappucino. Good coffee,expresso cappucino cakes and cookies quite fresh. A bit of a wait as coffees are made to order but not too long. Seems to be a local favourite
