Clearly most popular place to meet up for coffee or a good meal. Food is well presented and service is good. If not so hungry try the soup. Of the day or the roasted egg plant

A nice relaxed vibe, good coffee and friendly servers. You could do a lot worse than to unwind at this chic cafe.

I'm trying to lose weight. Artcaffe make it difficult. Quiches good for a school lunch, although they have often run out, so need to get them early. Bread at Galleria often runs out early too - you're missing out on my shillings there, guys.

We eat there all the time, well used to. Never really had anything to complain about. Until 2 of my friends fell ill with food poisoning and were rushed to a hospital after what we thought was a pleasant dinner.

Artcaffe has a very good ambience setting. Their coffee is one of the best. Not much for kids to do so if you have a family with small children they will be bored here.
