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!!

Simply the best!

Cafe de Arts is by far the best coffee shop in Waukesha and is a gem. You truly are treated like family by Ayhan and Gulten. Also the best coffee and food in Waukesha. Try it once and you'll be hooked.

My wife and I had a late breakfast with our three kids (4-8). The kids had the granola in milk and my wife and I had the Mediterranean sandwich and lattes. The kids loved the granola and the sandwiches and lattes were awesome. The side salad with the sandwich was extremely good too. I would not have ordered the salad... More

This was the perfect place to have lunch with a young friend and former student of mine. The atmosphere is cheery, artsy and eclectic. The female staff were friendly, positive and attentive. I was pleased with the Greek salad, but especially fond of the iced chai tea ( even ordered a second).

We visit all the time and I don't even drink coffee. We love their sandwiches. They're inventive and taste like the sandwiches we make at home and some are even better. Last trip we were a group of 4 plus a 15 month old toddler. The owner served us and she was really great with suggestions and brought water in... More

We went for lunch and the sandwich I had was great but it only comes with potato chips. A nice little salad, maybe a pasta salad or fruit salad or greens, would have been nice on the plate to round out the meal.

This place is really warm, welcoming, and has great coffee and food. I've only eaten lunch there, but everything was super fresh and healthy. They have grilled sandwiches like tomato cheese, delicious homemade soups (fresh, without filler, like butternut squash soup) and fresh field greens salads with nuts and fruits and homemade dressings - no soggy iceberg here. There also... More

I went here for the first time last fall when I was looking for a local place to eat and meet with a couple of friends. This unique, local establishment was just the ticket. Great service and atmosphere. The food was good, and though I didn't have the coffee, those in my group that did enjoyed it immensely. This is... More

The atmosphere is funky, casual. The coffee, roasted onsite, is unsurpassed. Arrive early on a weekend and you may be treated to live music. Stay for lunch and enjoy a wide selection of salads, soup, and sandwiches. I'm a weekday lunch regular, but Cafe' is a hot spot for the Saturday breakfast crowd, especially during warmer months. Stop in for... More
