I have sampled many variants of Kabob sandwiches so I can say, the Arabica Cafe on the mark. Arabica is my lunch place of choice when I want to have lunch in downtown Colorado Springs. The menu can be a bit busy for someone not familiar with Middle Eastern Cuisine, just ask for help. The food is served fresh and... More

Our experience was not great at all. The food was ok at best. The Gyro meat was more like a steakum and it was very short on the meat from what I am used to at a Gyro shop. They are just not out the quality of food you would expect in the area.

We make a point of eating at Arabica Cafe on every visit to Colorado Springs and I'm happy to report that they're still serving up delicious food. My favorite is the falafel hummus plate - good stuff.

We were greeted as we walked in and not rushed to order. I had the beef shawarma plate and my friend had a veggie plate and a Turkish coffee. We both enjoyed our meals and the staff was very friendly.... Almost too good to be true. We will likely stop by on one of our next trips to Colorado Springs.

The Arabica Cafe has some really good food! They have the best baba ghanoush (roasted eggplant with seasonings) I have ever had. Their Chicken hummus bowl is fabulous! I will definitely be back . They have a prime downtown CS location on Tejon St.

Lived in the Mid-East for many years. The shawarma (especially beef), hummus and baba ganoush are good at this little cafe. A few suggstions: 1. Go for lunch - not dinner. They shut down the shawarma machines late afternoon and store cooked/sliced meat for anyone that comes in at dinner time. For fresh shawarma - stick with lunch. 2. They... More

We discovered this gem on a recent visit to our former hometown of Colorado Springs. We've lived in the Middle East and loved the food, so we were pleasantly surprised to find Arabica Cafe right downtown on Tejon St. We were even more surprised by the excellent food. The hummus bowl is fantastic, and we agreed it's the best hummus... More
