“New at Oval in Westlands...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Art Cafe opened a new branch at Oval - a new building in Westlands not far from Westgate. The atmosphere is really good although the first time we went there, we were not able to get any food as they had a problem with their gas system. It is a nice for Sunday brunch or in the evenings for drinks in terms of atmosphere. Their service was ok while we were there. One thing that I have to say about Art cafe is that despite the fact that they may not be cheap for their cakes and pastries, they are really good and are certainly worth having. We bought an array of desserts take away including their block chocolate cake which was just divine and did not regret anything we bought when we were home eating them later. I would definitely buy their desserts again.

“Slow inattentive service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant has nice ambience. Got there just before it got the busy lunch rush, even on public holidays!!! Received well and ushered to a table quickly.
I enjoyed my first order of a capucchino milkshake. As I waited for my company nothing too interesting was going on. No concern for any other order shown.
We waited a long while as we waited to get someone's attention to take the next order.
Had a tuna sandwich, nothing to write home about, the accompanying salad was it's saving grace.
The bolognaise lasagne was enjoyed, and so were the white sangrias.
Had to wait a while for the bill.
Also ordered a roulade mocha dessert, very thin slice...........but I was told it was very nice.
The establishment needs to work on their service provision.
Looking forward to trying out the new one at The Oval in Westlands.

“Great for Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

The new one at Oval in Westlands is a really nice design and layout.
Great for brunch, service is relaxed, but efficient, food is good. An ideal location if you need to catch up with your online life/work.
The lamb burger is to die for, great balance of flavours, portions are a good size bordering on a little bit too big.
Breakfasts are a little bizarre in plating-up, but taste great.
Milk shakes are so thick, they are a meal in themselves
