Lovely breakfast and very friendly staff, looked a bit dated from the outside looking in due to wood panel walls but when we went in it was very clean, tidy and the owner was lovely and very good with our little boy too. Good value...More

Stopped here whilst visiting the local motorcycle shop. The staff were most welcoming and efficient. Had a bacon sandwich and a coffee which were both delicious. Obviously a small family run business. Well done. Will certainly be cafe of choice when next in the area

Whenever we are in Thirsk on walkabout we always go in Arabica. Great friendly service and a wonderful choice of drinks , snacks and meals all reasonably priced.

First visit today and certainly won't be our last. Good coffee and tea and excellent panninis. Service was superb and we felt very welcomed. Why bother with chain coffee shops when places like this exist? Absolutely recommended

A good Americano plus the hottest pain au chocolat I've ever had in pleasant surroundings with excellent service. Makes a change from the usual coffee house chains.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, spotlessly clean, reasonably priced quality food. What more could you want! Definitely worth a visit.

Although this isn’t a question and more of a statement there is not much that can be answered. I do note however that this is the same anonymous person who chose to lambast us on a totally unrelated article on Facebook... More
