“Worth the drive for the Art shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

The Art shop is great and well priced. The setting in a garden is great. Visited on a busy Sunny Sunday morning. The food looked great but we were there for the coffee and we're left a little disappointed with it.

“Great Art + Food + Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Wonderful mosaic and pottery art - this is worth a visit alone. The cafe has a good ambience with great service, great food, great coffee. Lovely garden to view from outside tables. We make a point of returning each time we visit.

“Wonderful Art/Breakfast Combo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Read about L'Arte on Trip Advisor, so had to go. Was not disappointed! Absolutely FUN mosaics all around the outside - feels like you are in Dr Seuss land! Great food in the cafe/restaurant - great art studio on the hill next to the cafe. We were fortunate and arrived on the day of a Dec SALE event! Got some great buys - now have to be sure I can get them back to the US safely. If you have time, it's worth a visit - loved it for breakfast!! Come prepared to smile and enjoy yourself!
