Sought this place out after reading reviews. Missed it first time we passed - not even as big as a hole in the wall! Glad we eventually found it!! Three of us managed to get seated together - get there early - and on reading...More

I love little dive cafes and this place was no exception. It's tiny - holds maybe 15 people and is cash only. But being able to watch everything cook and trying to figure out how they are able to move with a foot of space...More

Art's is a tiny, greasy spoon, hole in the wall. Only 15 counter seats. He makes the best hash brown's ever - thin and crispy, like a taco shell - filled with perfectly caramelized onions, tomato's and peppers.

Where else can you get a breakfast for 5 dollars and taste this amazing? This place is a must if you are the in the neighborhood. Service is ok but food is really good. It's always worth the wait.
