We Visited Arts Cafe for breakfast. The cafe opens around 10 AM and the whole place is beautifully designed. The outdoor has a view of Kalimpong with mountains & greenery around. We tried Pizza, Darjeeling Tea & Hazzlenut Coffee, everything was very nice. They also...have a section where they sell local, eco-friendly, handmade stuff like bamboo straws, earrings, wood pots, etc. Near reception, they had put up Nagaland Chilli pickles & sauce at the display which we ended up buying. Overall good place to chill and enjoy food with views.More

We had a refreshing experience at Art Cafe , Kalimpong ,during our tour of Kalimpong.....As Darjeeling town/ mall road ambience became more polluted and congested We choose to Stay at serene Kalimpong and our Breakfast at Art Cafe was an icing on the cake !.....We loved the artistic and antique decor of the Cafe....Pizza and green tea were of fine quality and delicious too....Behaviour of the staffs were cordial enough and cooperative too.....But ....the delay in service , Pizza took 30 minutes to serve , annoyed us most !!.... Service need to be prompt and professional....The floor on the outdoor area was not clean enough.....Rough flooring is a backlash / negative aspect of this Cafe though it' s not a serious issue but important one.....This Cafe has potentiality of more cosy ambience but just need more professional and sensible approach to make it best at the level of Glenarys of Darjeeling.....Will surely visit again....More

Breathtaking view and decor. It's an amazing place for a hot cuppa and a great conversation. We were too full to try any of the food, but it definitely looked good from what I saw on the other tables ;)

This cafe was a real surprise for us in Kalimpong and we went there 2 days running mainly for the good coffee! The food was also great . We can recommend the pasta and veggie.burger. if you want a change from traditional Indian food then...this is the place.There was a really nice atmosphere . The service was good , it was clean .It is up a flight of stairs so not immediately obvious at street level- look out for the signs.More

We did not enjoy our visit to the Art Cafe. It is run like a chai shop with no sequencing and expediting of orders. The orders were taken on a blank sheet of paper at the counter. The receipt was the exact same blank sheet...of paper with the items served and prices mentioned alongside( Please find attached ) We were met by a cold looking and speaking non gentleman at the counter , not an ounce of warmth and etiquette shown. I hope they learn that customers should be valued. All of the following drinks are a waste of time and money : 1) Cold Coffee 2) Peanut Butter and Banana milk shake 3) Blueberry soda 4) Oreo Shake * Milk shakes should have vanilla ice cream as base The following food items were good: 1) Chicken Barbeque wings 2) Drums of heaven 3) Veg Sandwich The following food items were a joke like the establishment: 1) Chicken Sandwich 2) Veg Burger I know you will read this review and still Bob your head and way into that ill managed want-to-be-café . Enjoy your visit.More

It's a beautiful place with beautiful people. The chocolate hazlenut shake is bliss, tuna sandwich is wow, chocolate walnut cake is to die for. Must visit place. The staff is so good and shines a bright smile at you.

Beautiful Himalayan view, best coffee in town, great food and the most nicest staff in India!! We loved this place so much and spend there one week day by day... If you’re in Kalimpong- only ART CAFE!!!
