Agreed with James(Jim),I think it has to do definitevely with a "Cafe" or "Cafetería" where they offer special grounds and coffee specialities as Jamaican Blue Mountain and its varieties,Kopi Luwak,Brasilian Bourbon,Colombian ground..etc!Good Luck!

(of) arts/artistic

... assuming that we are dealing with the (veryvery likely) mispelling of café/caffè,

it can refers to:

- a coffe-shop/-store (mostly in the case it helds artistic performances -
music/paintings/readings and so on)
e.g. http://www.pianeta-arte.com/caffedarte.asp
same as it happens abroad
http://www.google.it/search?q="arts coffee shop"&num=30&hl=i...

- to a coffee so *wonderful* to be itself an artistic masterpiece

here you can find many examples regarding both meanings of 'd'arte' in association
with 'caffè/cafè'
