Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely café with delicious cakes and pies. One of the best cappucinos I've ever had. The front of the café can get a little crowded but the room at the back had more space.

I really recommend Cafe Art. They have cozy indoor tables and also some nice tables by the River Aurajoki if the weather is good. There are interesting paintings in the cafe. Cakes and salty pastries are delicious. They make everything themselves. They have won several...barista prizes. This is one of my favorite cafeterias in the city center of Turku.More

I bought coffee, tea and some vegan pastries to go. After paying them I was suddenly told that they can’t sell the pastries as they were the last ones and without any further explanations. This made feel sad and not welcome as a customer.

There was nothing to eat for vegans. Not even a bisquit. It's quite unexpected these days even in Finland.

It was very sweet and cozy cafe. Very calm and quiet. Perfect for some family time. The deserts were great and the coffee was very good as well

Turku has become a thriving foodie scene and this place is centered right in the middle of it along the banks of River Aura. Service is painfully slow due to its popularity but worth the wait as I was able to secure a table river...view. I had a dry cappuccino (extra foam) which was done right and enjoyed it with a tasty piece of cheesecake. Even though service was slow, I still gave it 4 stars as staff was friendly and really wanted your time to be enjoyable. PS. Someone told me to come during off hours after lunch to get better service.More

Art might be the most popular cafe in town. I also visit it frequently although it isn't my no one choice. The reason for the popularity is that they without doubt serve the best coffee in town. Their barristers hav won several prestigious prices. The...other reason is of course the location beside the river just beside the theatre bridge, basically reachable by foot from anywhere. Today, as so many times before we had to stand in line to get to the counter. The line was all the way to the door but it didn't take more than 15 minutes to get to the counter where you choose what to order. If you take a latte or a cappuccino you have to continue standing in line to have them made. Regular coffee you get directly. The selection of cakes and pastries is good enough and they are all very good, a bit pricy though. The next problem is to get a table. We've always found a table although it's been more or less full. Being full means also that there's always noicy. Good that they don't have any music playing in the summertime the also have outside seating.More

This cafe served up great coffee.  We ordered Cappuccino doppio soy option, which was great - like NZ style flat white - good temperature and soy milk done well (I saw an oat milk carton on the side so if that is your preference you...can probably ask for it too).  We also had a sweet pastry with a long finnish name that I cant remember- which was good but nothing special.  I would come back for the coffee tho!More

The streets were busy with people enjoying the short Medieval Turku festival and all cafe tables by the river were full. For lunch I took the Bengtskär sandwich with salmon and sour cream, a good combination popular on the coast with Swedish tradition. The old...bui!ding has several rooms inside for colder weather.More

Cafe Art is one of my favourite cafes in Turku. Nice atmosphere, location by the riverside and very good coffee are the reasons that keep me coming back to this cafe.

Been to this café a few times only to be disappointed at their products. Dry sandwiches and their cakes have kind of a fake taste. This is really a shame because the café is beautiful with its art exhibitions and terrace by the river.

Excellent coffee. However, brownie was tasteless and very, very dry. Cheesecake, in turn, was full of gelatine which makes it hard as stone, and tasteless too. So, 5 star coffee and zero star bakery products = in average 3 stars!
