but I knew precisely where to both warm up and top up with excellent coffee, a delicious bacon & mushroom bap and a friendly welcome. Thanks, Mark, Rosie and team for persistent & consistent excellence in looking after your customers.

Go to Arabica and you won't waste your time going elsewhere.And it's always service with a smile,so it's a happy warm place to be. My only negative comment concerns access which needs looking...

Visited 28th september for a couple of lattes, walked in, sat down, waitress came over and took our order and made the drinks very quickly and brought them to our table. A very pleasant experience unlike some other coffee shops in Thirsk! I'll be back again. Keep up the good work!

This is the best place to eat in Thirsk. The service and food are excellent. My wife had the burrito and really wasn't expecting the excellent dish she had. The staff are friendly and efficient. Can't say much more than that.
