There is nothing like Art Cafe 26. Not in a hundred mile radius. A combination of Art Gallery and Austrian Cafe. Bernhard Klinger the chef constantly surprises me with his desserts. Somewhere between the mint foam and the mango espuma I learned that the Austrians...More

There are wonderful meals to be had at artcafe 26 and we have enjoyed them. Thursday night light meals are not counted in this list, however. Very average, very expensive considering the menu. We didn't help matters by ordering wine. If you go, pick another...More

Hi Belluno_10, Thank you for your review and thank you very much for dining with us at artcafe26. You are correct, the Thursday Light Night Out menu is a different menu - more so an expansion of our lunch menu. We appreciate your feedback and...More

Discovered the restaurant on Open Table and it did not disappoint. In a city where history permeates most buildings and businesses, artcafe26 is unique because it is very modern and minimalistic. The menu is limited because they only have the ingredients needed for that day...More
