“don't go out of your way”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Right next to the Thapae Gate, it attracts tourists and nobody else. The food is passable; the coffee is not. There used to be a pretty good sandwich place across the street which inexplicably closed. Don't know why. The food was pretty good. So I found myself hungry and in front of the Art Cafe. Oops. There are better choices in the area. The Art Cafe does serve nearly every kind of food under the sun.

“Solid”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Once you get over your initial wrong impression of what a Thai, Italian, and Mexican restaurant will be like, this place will shatter your lower than low expectations. It's a bit overpriced and the Italian food isn't good, but the Mexican, shakes, mango/avacado menu and salads will make up for it.

“Eclectic menu”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Not only does Art Cafe have excellent Thai food but their Western and Mexico food will satisfy your taste no matter your mood. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert, it is hard to beat for quality, service, and cost.
