We had dinner at Art Cafe on a warm and beautiful evening in July. We sat out in the garden in the back of the cafe. Very nice outside seating with possibilities to sit in the shade as well as in the sun. The service was very good but perhaps a tad bit slow. We ordered sparkling wine and hummus... More

We had a lovely lunch in the Art Cafe during a tour of the Baltic in June 2014. It would turn out to be one of the few places that offered vegetarian food on the whole trip! I ordered the vegetable pancakes, which were unexpected as the sauce was sweet and sour, but the vegetables were fresh and full of... More

Also some translation errors in english... More

Price range is normal, food is mainly average, but sometimes with surprising twist in it. I like it as a coffee and cake place but not for a dinner. There is enough room and also nice terrace. There is always a little art exhibition which makes the cafe different from others. The servants are friendly but not so experienced and... More

Most reviews are right, coffee and dessert are excellent. Brownie was great, creme brulee also. Salmon pasta was tastless and fish seemed old, onion soup comes with bacon for some reason.
