Description: 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!!

“Waukesha's best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

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.

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014

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.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2014

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

“Gem of a place in Waukesha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

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 this. Heard the coffee is good, bought some but have not sampled it yet.
You must go there and check it out.
