We only live round the corner and whenever we have weekend visitors we go to Arabica for a Sunday morning fry up treat. Last weekend we turned up with 13 people and a baby....as ever they were brilliant.

Had a really nice meal in clean and welcoming surroundings. The service was first class without being over bearing. The coffee was top notch and the breakfast was as good as I have had anywhere, with the bacon actually cooked as requested. So well done for doing it well done!!!
