The soothing, low murmur of activity, the smell of freshly-baked pastries, the feeling of curling up in a cozy chair with a good book—there’s nothing quite like a cafe. The Art of Living Retreat Center cafe—located right next to the main dining hall, adjacent to the Just Heavenly gift store—offers a warm and cozy escape from the brisk mountain air outside. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a chilly hike, or to watch the snow fall outside the window as you count down the minutes to your next spa treatment. The cafe is eclectic and homey. Handmade knits are thrown over vintage couches by the crackling fireplace, and the walls are covered in watercolors, wall hangings, and photographs.
The cafe is located downstairs, next to the main dining hall and the gift store. Stop by between classes for a cozy place to reconnect with your fellow retreat-goers—and don’t forget to grab a cup of hot apple cider over the holiday season. We hope to see you there soon!
It boils down to community. It’s a place where we can foster bonds.
On cold days, visitors love the heat from the electric fireplace while they snuggle up in one of our afghans or select the perfect pashmina shawl or sweater from the store’s large inventory.
