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!!

If you are tired of the "typical" restaurant, try Café De Arts. The food is tasty and hardly "usual". This family run café treats everyone with smiles and a gentleness that can be rare in other locations. Café de Arts is one of my favorite places to have a slow meal or long coffee with a friend.

This has become my favorite coffee spot in Waukesha. The food has always been fresh, the service is incredibly friends and what gets better than coffee roasted on sight. We've been here for breakfast and lunch, both have been very good. I'd highly recommend that anyone driving by the "purple building" in Waukesha stop in and give it a try.

We had the prime rib panini not much meat. Flavor was good. My sister had a salad it was big and okay. Glasses were water spotted. The furniture was very worn. Stop there if you are looking for that type of atmosphere.

A friendly, family-run coffee shop, serving homemade Paninis and sweet treats. Very reasonably priced, and plenty of variety on the menu.

Had lunch there today, service and food were excellent--tuna sandwich filled with chopped olives, had yummy flavors throughout the sandwich. Wonderful relaxing music. Brought home their homemade Borsch Beet soup, it was fabulous. Not sure how they were able to achieve such an excellent flavor with a vegetarian soup. Had Borsch in Poland and the Ukrane, but none compares with... More

This is where my daughters want to go for daddy-daughter-dates. It's where they go with their husbands/boyfriends. It's where the who's who of the area go to meet and chat and debate. You'll find politicians, Bible Studies, newlyweds, and retirees. The Turkish owners have a amazing memory for faces and preferences. You may see their family serving or others. The... More

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!
