Art is a beautiful old cafe located next to the river in the central of Turku. At the summer they have tables outside too, but the inside of the cafe is also really nice and old fashioned. They have salty and sweet snacks and excellent coffee and tea.

Cafe Art is know for great cups of coffee! It is well deserved and I did enjoy them too. These days I drink only tea, so I was really surprised to see that they also have great tea selection.

Popped in just before closing time on a Sunday. Greeted by friendly staffmembers, and the place had a lovely, a bit old-fashioned atmosphere. We had two kinds of tea, very tasty! I especially recommend the orange and ginger rooibos. We also had the salmon sandwhich, which was delicious. Very nice place for a cup of coffee or tea.

Just adorable! You must visit this place and have coffee or cake (or both)! :) During the summer, it makes beautiful terrace next to the Aura river.

There isn't really much more to say about Cafe Art. Their baristas have been selected best in Finland for years in a row so go and see if that holds up.

Good coffee, awesome cakes and pastries and a nice, quiet environment. What more could you ask for? The location is wonderful too in case you manage to get a table outside, looking on the river.

On a rainy day we spent an hour relaxing with good coffee and nice books. It was very popular and busy, but there were lots of tables. There is also a very nice area outside along the water, that would have been perfect had it been sunny.
