About

The owners say:

Nestled on the corner of Marchmont Road and Marchmont Crescent, Café Artista is, appropriately, smack-dab in the middle of a bustling university route and a hub of off-campus student living. An eye-catching yellow awning, outdoor seating and a menu of tried and true favourites keeps the café full with a mix of young academics, local workers, families and passers-by.

Café Artisa lives up to the needs of its prime locale by covering all the essential student-y staples, from pastries to paninis and pizzas, all available early morning until late. Forget fruit and muesli - let yourself be tempted by bacon sandwiched between two fluffy pancakes, whipped cream and real Canadian maple syrup. Or perhaps a sausage, egg and hash brown medley all on a buttery grilled bagel? Homemade chili? Gourmet pizza? Even if that doesn't tickle your fancy, everyone is a sucker for a free caramelized biscuit served with a giant foamy latte. Although not the cheapest café in town, you won't be disappointed by the convenient location, speedy service or the portion size, and there is something to be said for strong
coffee.

A rotating gallery of purchasable artwork displayed on the walls enhances the classic café/pizza joint décor. Stand at the counter for cheaper take away or if you would like to settle in, grab the corner booth, equipped with pillows and a panoramic view of the youthful Marchmont morning commute. You can expect a lively atmosphere as a steady flow of regulars chat away with the cooks while waiting for their daily sausage roll. Tuck yourself away with a laptop or strike up a conversation with your neighbor, but don't be surprised if your Monday morning coffee suddenly turns into a leisurely brunch worthy of a subsequent cigarette and siesta.

So the next time you stroll by, don't be shy and pay a visit to the little neighbourhood bistro. If a full breakfast or lunch isn't on the cards, any Marchmont dweller should at least stop by for some organic muffins, quality caffeination and a friendly chat.
