Coffee and Waffles at Arte 3 Cafe in Suwanee, GA

Located in a nondescript shopping mall in Suwanee, the Arte 3 Cafe is a Korean-inspired coffee shop serving coffee, tea, bingsu (Korean shaved ice dessert), Korean fish-shaped pastry (bungeo-ppang), and fish bread ice cream. However, perhaps what Arte 3 is best known for are the large, fruit-topped waffles that are freshly prepared.

The Suwanee location of Arte 3 Cafe is the second one to open in Gwinnett County; the other location is located in Duluth, GA.

Photos from a recent trip to the Arte 3 Cafe in Suwanee are below. As you’ll see, the interior is spacious and inviting—two large rooms to get work done with fast Wi-Fi. If you come with a group of six or more, there are reserved, private tables which you can claim without any reservation.

As mentioned, the waffles at Arte 3 are perhaps their most popular dessert. I asked which of the flavors was the most popular from the five options (regular, green tea, chocolate, fruit choco, walnut) and was told the regular was the most popular, which is the one I ordered. The waffle was topped with fresh kiwis, strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, and ice cream. Caramel and chocolate drizzle topped off the waffle. The waffle portion was massive, so I recommend ordering one if you are really hungry or want to share!
