Restaurant Review

Archetypus Cafe is a unique place. It's attractive decor with a cave like ambiance attracts diners who come for a date-night, an after-movie dessert, celebrating an romantic occasion, a birthday with family, or with a group of friends. This is a "funky" dining experience like no other!

Archetypus Cafe features seating arranged in private cozy caves that are softly lit with mood lighting.

They have table seating in the front, but to get the true experience of Archetypus Cafe, ask to be seated in the back in one of the caves.

While most dinners come for dinner, some dinners come just for their amazing desserts.They are imaginative, tasty, and served in huge portions.

The menu consists of starters, pizza, salads, wraps, entrees, vegan options, and a large variety of their specialty desserts.

During prime weekend hours, seating in one of the caves comes with a minimum per person charge.

Service is friendly & attentive.

There is outdoor dining in the warmer months on the attractive Bamboo Garden Patio which is flanked by cliffs, bamboo and soft lighting.

Archetypus Cafe is open for dinner, desserts/coffee seven days/week:

Monday - Thursday: 6pm-12 midnight; Friday: 6pm-1am; Saturday: 4pm-1am; and Sunday: 4pm-12 midnight

Archetypus Cafe, doesn't take reservations
