“Casual local spot... comfortable and fresh food...”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

A good casual breakfast and lunch spot for Italian-oriented cuisine....salads, soups, pasta dishes and select sandwiches. Very casual with good service. Outdoor seating in season. They now offer dinners on select nights so check with them - very affordable BYO. Only a few blocks from the beach and in the center of Spring Lake they offer good coffee and espresso...

“Best Salad Ever!”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

I've seen two spellings for the restaurant, Cafe Artist and Cafe Artiste. However, the address listed is correct. The restaurant is located 1 block off the main strateet in Spring Lake and was a surprise find. The Italian owner has his family working as servers. The name of the restaurant I guess is based on the owner hanging paintings done by local residents that are for sale

We only had salad but it was absolutely the best salad I have ever tasted. While I cannot make claims about the rest of the menu, if the other items were only half as delicious as was the salad, then you are in for a treat.
