I always get a bit excited when talking about cafe Art to someone who have never visited it before. It's offers so much for every sense; lovely perfectly made coffees, beautiful coffee art, friendly staff, unforgettable cakes... and the aromas! Leaving Turku, part of my heart will always be in cafe Art.

Being Italian I tend to be quite picky when coffee is involved. Coffee culture in Finland is quite big, but they tend to prefer "regular" filtered coffee over espressos & similar coffee machine products. However this place took me back to my hometown with regards to espresso quality! I enjoyed twice a cappuccino along with a delicious cake.

Situated along the river this cosy art café is busy yet spacey. In hot weather there is outdoor setting with both sunny and shady options.

Wonderful coffees, great astmosphere. Especially during the summer it's nice to sit by the river bank and enjoy a cup of coffee with some great dessert. The desserts they serve are also delicious.

Cafe Art is perhaps my favourite cafe in my home town. Coffees are excellent (the baristas have won many awards in national barista competitions) and the cakes etc. are just scrumptious. My favourite thing to do is to visit in the summer, when the cafe has a nice terrace area by the river. It feels somewhat non-Finnish to be sitting... More

Don't miss an opportunity to get a tasty cup of special coffee with delicious cake right at the heart of Turku, and even more, by the river! This is a cafe with a special kind of atmosphere: an old house with real character. Sometimes it can get quite crowded, but at best it is nice and peaceful, if you can... More

Went here for a coffee and to see what all the fuzz was about. Ordered a double espresso while my girlfriend went for the Latte. Quality of the coffee was great with some nice coffee art on the latte but the atmosphere was very dissapointing. The paintings that were supposed to add to the atmosphere were gray and dark. The...

If you live in Turku or visit the City, this is the place for a Great Cappuccino! The Cafe has a charming atmosphere and the selection of pastries and sandwiches is good. Outside seating during the summer with the view of the Aura river is not to be missed.
