“Great little place to sit and watch the world go by...”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I've been in Amman for about six months, and have only just discovered this little gem of a cafe in Rainbow Street. With artwork on the walls, bright and quirky furniture in its two storeys of seating space, and a fantastic view out over the hustle and bustle of the street, Cafe des Artistes is a fun place to spend an afternoon. I haven't tried the food there - only drinks (hot chocolate, which was average - nothing to write home about, but not bad either) - but the menu looks interesting. The service was decent, with staff speaking English, and I was really pleased to find that the upper level of the cafe is non-smoking. (It would be better if the lower floor was too, but that's a story for another day!) Great place to catch up with friends, or to sit and watch the world go by...

(Also, no idea why this is listed as an attraction...?)

“Cool cafe on Rainbow street”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This cafe would not look out of place in Europe. Very friendly with staff able to speak English. We paid 3.20JD each for very nice smoothies. Additionally another plus was the very good wi-fi signal. Situated on the very trendy Rainbow road.
Not quite sure why this is listed as an 'attraction' rather than a cafe?

“Very funky, cool little cafe/hangout/art gallery on Rainbow street!”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

The perfect place for a cold drink and to unwind. The food seemed a little on the expensive side for a cafe and wasn't so fresh, but would definitely recommend the place as a coffee shop as they have a cool gallery upstairs with revolving exhibitis, a community bulletin board, and what seemed like a very hip clientele of artsy, indie locals and international visitors. Check it out!
