Artcafe is a popular restaurant, opens the doors early morning for breakfast with the best homemade bread, Yogurt, Swiss Muesli etc and right at the gate to the island hopping tours. It's a good hangout anytime of the day to have a bite or a coffee, a fruit shake, a cocktail or a sumptious meal, book a tour or a ticket. Artcafe grows its own organic vegetable and prides itself to be an ecofriendly and sustainable business. At night the place lights up, live music begins and you can enjoy delicious international specialities and a great variation of salads that are grown on their own organic farm or enjoy a good glass of wine and meet people at the Bar.
