My daughter and I loved this place! We had Panini sandwiches that were awesome! Very quaint restaurant with great art on the walls. It was originally a house and it's painted fun, bright colors on the outside; you can't miss it! There are great pictures on the wall as you enter of past owners who lived in the home sitting...

Understaffed. Don't be in a hurry. Coffee would taste better with filtered water! Big coffee grinder in premises, Great homemade bakery 3rd grade art on wall is cute. Seating for 12 outside, funky bathroom door!

We came here because of the excellent rating on tripadviser. We were not disappointed. The place is a bit eclectic and has a definite urban vibe. Tables are close together and there are lots of art pieces on the walls. We each tried a different Panini and they were both very good and the smoothies were excellent.

We had googled breakfast places in Waukesha earlier and found four names listed.One of these was Cafe De Arts located in a modest neighborhood. Outdoor and indoor seating was available on wonderful sunny day.We were greeted promptly and looked around... More

If you want house roasted coffee, this is where you need to go. Owner has a coffee roaster and he knows how to use it. Try the Istanbul Blend; you'll never buy coffee from the grocery store again. Food is very good. Great for breakfast or lunch. Great pastries.

Thanks to previous TripAdvisor reviewers! We were travelling through Waukesha today and followed their advice, going to the Cafe De Arts for a late lunch. The food was great -- and a couple of things were exceptional, two that you might expect from a place that roasts its own coffee: the double expresso and a perfect latte (HUGE -- the... More

Milwaukee is fast becoming known for its small local roasteries. For those not lucky enough to be in Milwaukee, Cafe de Arts is a great backup plan. Waukesha has a few coffee shops, but this one has something extra: a small-batch roastery on site. Family-run, with a unique and delicious cafe menu, make the time to get lunch and a... More

This review is way overdue, had lunch here last May. Stopped with my parents and each had different versions of their Mediterranean sandwiches and their pastries. DELICIOUS!! The owner Ayhan Munzer was so kind and took the time to talk about were we were traveling from and family talk. So refreshing and great down to earth place!

I went to breakfast here while visiting some friends in nearby Brookfield and it was great. I'm from NY and it's the type of place you'd see here. The sandwiches were so different from the average breakfast option and my European egg sandwich had a delicious sause on it. It also came with a nice fresh salad and fruit. The... More

Everyone else here raves about Cafe de Arts and you will too if you stop in. Family run, reasonable prices and Mediterranean breakfast sandwiches unlike anything I have ever had. Oh, and the coffee isn't half bad either! Do yourself a favor and skip your overpriced chain coffee shop, slow down a bit and relax at Cafe de Arts.
