Having opened at its current location in April 2012, Art Haus has a fresh take on the modern café experience. The concept is based on an old Parisian tradition of blending coffee houses and art galleries, giving patrons the chance to be surrounded by fine works and purchase any pieces that catch their eye. This makes for a superb setting in which to enjoy a well-made coffee along with a sweet treat.
The ideal way to spend any day is with coffee and biscuits from Art Haus.
The service at Art Haus is friendly and relaxed, in keeping with the seaside vibe the café exudes. The staff is more than happy to have chat and if necessary, help you make the all-important decision of what to try while you are visiting.
As a family run business, many of the dishes have distinct Greek twists. However, that does not mean you need a Greek heritage to enjoy foods such as their marinated chicken wings (pictured below) or tasty traditional biscuits.
These zesty chicken wings make a great afternoon snack.
Additionally, there are a variety of art pieces available at Art Haus. These include canvas paintings, sculptures, jewellery and more. As local artists create the artwork showcased, the café has a genuine connection to the area, making the experience more enjoyable for customers. Also while you're perusing the gallery, be sure to take a look at the cabinet that houses many exquisite jewellery pieces.
Art Haus features a range of unique jewellery pieces.
The gallery itself adds to the overall experience, with a well-structured layout that makes an excellent use of space. When browsing, visitors are likely to note the design allows for a large range of pieces to be showcased. This is especially admirable given Art Haus' desire to highlight artists with a local connection to the area.
Overall, the combination of friendly service, flavoursome foods and fine art at Art Haus makes the café a must-visit for anyone in the Victor Harbor area. Whether you are a local or just visiting for the day and want to absorb the culture, Art Haus has something for you. Finally, to top it all off, you can enjoy a coffee and delightful dessert while you browse the fine art available.
