Cafe De Arts Roastery was established in 2009 as a family owned and operated European coffee house and micro-roastery, roasting all of our coffee on site, and is located in the beautiful historic downtown Waukesha, WI. Along with being a micro-roaster, our European-style coffee house offers several other wonderful items of enjoyment. Come in a savor one of our authentic European pastries made with real imported ingredients. Enjoy one of our five types of Panini sandwiches, made with hearty Ciabatta bread, you won't leave hungry!!

Best Roasted Coffee

They roast their own coffee in house. We have been going there since they opened. Everything they serve is good. Family run business so be patient - it is not fast food.

We tried Cafe De Arts for the first time recently. I had the Prime Rib Panini and their own robust coffee and my son had the Art of the Veggie and a Latte. The prime rib was good but quite small, served with a pickle and the chips were nothing special, just out of the bag. We did not realize... More

This restaurant is so good, every. single. time. The people are so nice. The coffee is fresh roasted and amazing. Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant, get a comfy chair, sit in the sunshine and sip on some amazing coffee. You will be glad you did.

Great coffee, nice environment and good food. Wonderful small business run by a hard working family :) Suggestion: have almond milk as a milk choice. Lattes are delicious with almond milk! Colectivo does this but are not close by and I like to support small business. Good for lactose intolerant and those who cannot have soy products :) thank you!

Coffee is roasted here daily, buy it fresh and usually still warm. Or try one of their brewed varieties, or a specialty beverage, they can beat Starbucks hands down. Tasty lunches, great biscotti, and the owner is SO NICE!! My niece and husband recommended this place and I do too now!

I LOVE Cafe De Arts. Ayhan and Gultan are such wonderful people that care deeply about the quality of product they serve and the level of customer service. I can't say I ever had a bad meal here, and everytime I go there I look at the menu still undecided because everything is just so delicious. The prime rib panini,... More

Cafe De Arts is breakfast stand by for many. The close proximity to the farmers market makes it an ideal stop after a morning of shopping. Both the outside and interior is unique and quaint. I love the various levels of outside seating, especially those along the side of the building, where it feels secluded and close to nature. A... More

The food was delicious, and the presentation was lovely. They have a wonderful selection of sandwiches, salads and soups. They roast there own coffee beans. Love the brightly colored building. The staff is so friendly and helpful.
