So so cute inside. The smells coming from the kitchen are of wonderment and very delightful. I enjoyed some very delicious coffee while we waited for our food. I had the most tastebud pleasing yogurt peppered granola fruit plate that completely satisfied every nutritional need as well as sight and smell. This is a hidden gem. Please visit. Even if... More

Stopped by last Saturday before going to the farmers market. This place is cute and cozy. The staff is friendly and helpful and their food and coffee are both great. My fiance and I are big fans of their breakfast sandwiches. They have a few outdoor seating options as well as cozy indoor tables. We plan on being frequent visitors.

I met a friend for lunch to catch up. We enjoyed our sandwiches and were not rushed to leave. We were able to linger and chat over an extra cup of coffee. I love giving my money to small family run businesses. Cafe De Arts is a great location.

A nice stop on Sunday morning or a quick pop in before work on a Monday. Everyone is so friendly. One day we had our coffee outside and the waitress came outside to see if we needed anything else. Plus I love the lamps above the bar.

I am embarrassed to say that I have only been here about 4 times but only because of the hours I keep. Owner, staff (I believe staff is his better half) and atmosphere are very friendly and comfortable. The owner is a very personable family man and genuinely kind. Menu is limited but is delicious and is quality. The picture... More

The warm welcoming hospitality that is given to each person who comes into Iham and Gulgan's coffee house make the delicious food served there an even more special treat...Where else can you get a delicious cup of coffee show beans were roasted the preceding Wednesday and ground to your order the day you make your purchase? But the owner, his... More

We ate at Cafe De Arts and the food was ok, when we first got our soup it was Luke warm so we sent it back. The service was outstanding I just wish the food was as good.

They roast their own coffee in house. We have been going there since they opened. Everything they serve is good. Family run business so be patient - it is not fast food.

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!!
