I live in Los Angeles, so I'm used to servers with an attitude, but this is first and only time in Arcata that I found the servers had an "attitude" as in who cares what you want, who cares about your questions, etc. will never return.

Get a vanilla latte and a ham and cheese croissant for breakfast to start your day off right. This is my favorite breakfast and coffee place in town by far and there's an adorable patio area outside to sit, rain or shine.

If you like french cooking this is your place. The best pastry north of San Francisco. Drop dead "Hollandaise".

We've visited Cafe Brio at least a half dozen times in the last couple of years, usually for lunch, and have always been pleased. This time is was a Sunday brunch. We had Little Doggie with us, so we needed eating options with outdoor seating, which is not commonly available around Arcata. Our group of 5 put two tables together... More

We love going here for breakfast & dinner. Their dinners are always great with a seasonal menu that changes weekly. This is where my husband & I normally choose to go when we have a night out. Love it! <3 The prices are comparable to the other nice restaurants in the area however i feel that the quality exceeds other... More

I've had the pleasure of eating here a few times. It's a little pricey, but delicious. The only problem is it's small and seating can be an issue. They've also just expanded to lunches and I'm excited to try it out then.

It seemed to be the only place open to serve breakfast. It was very busy with so many locals grabbing their morning coffee and some stopping for breakfast. I ordered a mug of hot tea and was surprised how good it was. It's usually difficult to get good tea made with boiling water in the USA!. Breakfast was poached eggs... More

Their food is good (and slow). Their pastries are beautiful (and expensive). Their coffee is flavorful and made one cup at a time (which is not speedy). Their outdoor seating in fun on a farmer's market day (and almost always full). Be patient and enjoy.
