Stroll in for a hot brew.

Stay for the art and music.

Welcome to Open Studio Art Café – where the blend of art, music, and coffee specialties has created a unique spot on Liverpool Road south, along the Waterfront Trail in Pickering! Since Spring 2015, we've been the go-to spot for specialty coffee enthusiasts, cyclists enroute, art and music lovers, and anyone seeking a unique experience set in charming Nautical Village. As a local independent café, we've survived, we’ve thrived, riding every wave to remain the steady heartbeat of Nautical Village attracting locals and visitors to the scenic waterfront of Lake Ontario. Our community has flourished, embracing a diverse tapestry of art forms while staying true to our roots of inclusivity and support.


 Drop in and try homemade, healthy, artisanal food, baked goods and treats. Savor a cup of your favorite brew, whether hot or iced, listen to the eclectic array of music, and let the cozy art gallery setting spark you. Join an art session, network with other creative minds, or lose yourself in the rhythm of live art and music events. Experience open mic magic, groove with seasoned musicians, or take the stage with your original tunes – the spotlight is waiting. Check out our upcoming events for a sneak peek into the creative community that awaits.


We're also fully licensed to serve up spirits, wine, and beer. So, whether you're cozied up inside or on the porch all year round, or basking in the summer sun on our patio, you’ve found your spot for relaxation and inspiration. We're the local independent haven, the espresso bar oasis on the waterfront trail, the live music coffee house, the art studio café, and your passport to the most relaxing things to do in Pickering.


Come for the coffee, stay for the vibe.
