I have eaten here a few times now and there is always a smiling welcome. Service is good as is the food. Reasonably priced and there is never any rush to 'get you out' . I enjoy watching the people go by with a lovely cup of tea.

I stopped here on the way back to the north west from Teesside to break the journey and for a spot of lunch. The tuna and cheese panini was lovely and warm and the salad and home made coleslaw that accompanied it was very fresh and tasty. Service was quick and efficient too. The coffee was good though the fruit... More

Today myself and my hubby visited Thirsk to go shopping. We called into Arabica for a coffee and a breakfast. The cafe faces the market place and is close to the centre parking. My midi breakfast was average, the plate came with beans and toast but I don't eat them so my plate had a single rasher of bacon one... More

Called in for morning coffee our first time ever. Greeted by very warm and friendly staff. Even though we didn't eat we looked at the food menu and were surprised at the price of the lunches served from noon to 3pm very good value indeed. Well worth the visit all reasonably priced.

Stopped off to grab a coffee on a lengthy road trip. Always keen to go to a locally owned place and this looked nice. Very well presented. The woman working immediately greeted me and asked me how my weekend was, she appeared very happy and had a really friendly attitude. The coffee she then made me was beautiful, just as... More

Stopped off on our way to Northumberland on the motorcycle, used this cafe before and the lady is always welcoming. As the name suggests you get an excellent coffee. The breakfast (full of course) was exceptional in every way and set me up for the day. Great little cafe, very clean, very welcoming and wouldn't go anywhere else when in... More

Our 3rd visit for breakfast/brunch and once again wonderful. Very friendly service, attentive without being overbearing. The breakfast itself is great and we can heartily recommend it.......don't order the big one unless thats your meal for the day!! You won't fit anything else in. Lovely atmosphere and a very warm welcome awaits you - wouldn't hesitate to recommend :)

Superb service. Lovely coffee served with hot milk. A lot of bacon in the bagel and the bacon roll was large. Excellent.

I had a nice coffee here and the welcome was friendly. The place could be lit a bit brighter. I also spent an interesting few minutes working out what the numbered blocks on the wall were all about - a good way to pass the time perhaps!
