Excellent coffee and early restaurant open hours. Chairs were comfortable but still limited seating available indoors. Seating was also available outdoors weather permitting. Similar to Starbucks all over the United States.

This is a perfect little gem of a coffee shop. It is always a nice little break in your day to grab a coffee, pastry or sandwich. They even have Ice cream!

We stopped in for desserts and based on how good the ice cream was, I would recommend trying other things on the menu. Service was good and it is a cute and cozy place.

It was $2 for a bar & $1 for a round donut! And the prices were not marked.They are the same weight! I've asked this at donut... More

The owner was friendly enough and the coffee was great. Unfortunately the WiFi was not working but we went for the coffee not the WiFi. Give them a try..you find a better iced vanilla latte in Arnold.

My wife always insists on stopping here when we go through Arnold. It's in the shopping center with the Big Trees grocery store (another great place). As a confirmed Starbuck's junkie, my wife is very particular about her lattes, and she says that the Bistro does them exactly right (at a more reasonable price). They also have sandwiches and ice...

We stopped in during the day and enjoyed a drink and wrap. The wrap was of generous proportion and tasty. It was afternoon so the number of patrons was limited at the time. Staff was very friendly and prompt. Food arrived as ordered. Didn't try the various coffees but they appeared to have a nice selection. An outdoor area is... More
