Tucked away down a side street and up one flight from street level, Candid Arts Cafe gives the impression of being a cafe that only those in the know are lucky enough to find. It's relatively spacious with lots of light, hard wood floors and decorated with patterned fabrics hanging on the walls. Smells of incense and there's no wifi so while it might be good place to read a book or chat with friends, if you've got work to do that requires Internet, you're out of luck. Mismatched couches and long wooden tables give this place a hippy charm but I'd say it's better on warmer, sunny days when you can take full advantage of the sunlight streaming through the large windows making it feel like a garden cafe. If you like the hippy vibe, I guess it would be perfect any time of year, but it lacks the cosy homey appeal in winter that this reviewer is craving.
