Artista

Scurry down an alleyway to this West End gem.

West End mightn't be short on places to eat and drink, but not every cafe in the area lurks down a historic laneway, boasts its own cobblestone path and even has a footpath mural. No, that'd just be Artista in the the building that the Peter's ice-cream factory once called home.

Greenery galore and a relaxation-friendly deck to enjoy it from also rank among the Boundary Street's spot's key features, helping it ramp the chill factor up to eleven. You'll walk in, you'll soak in the vibe and you'll want to get comfortable. And, once you see the menu, you'll want to sit down for a while.

It takes time to drink a lemon meringue latte, sip on wild botanical mint tea that looks like it's just been freshly picked, knock back an iced caramel, or cool off with a strawberry and lime lemonade, after all. More typical options are also on offer, but who wants those? Food-wise, three types of fruity, homemade "posh paddle pops" and the fanciest jaffles you've ever come across (Italian ham and cheese; roast duck, pate and golden raisin jam; mushrooms, fontina cheese and thyme) keep the less-than-usual menu selections going.
