Popped in for a hot choc but it wasn't strong enough and it was a small portion size. Nice and friendly though.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Arabica. I am sorry to hear about your experience of a weak hot chocolate, especially as I use a very high quality Chocolate sauce for our Hot Chocolates, which is very popular with our customers. I can only assume that there may have been some error in the way... More

I go here quite regularly, and the staff are always so welcoming and friendly. They are always happy to prepare dishes how I like them, and I appreciate that. Things get even better when the staff remember those details without having to be told. They offer some delicious specials from time to time, too, and the portion sizes are generous.... More

It was as promised: giant! I had the beef version and it was good. definitely good price for size, the gravy could have been a bit more flavourful?

Small friendly cafe with excellent coffee. Sandwiches and salads are very good haven't as yet tried any hot food personally but well recommended by friends. Nice to find a place where real coffee is served. Bonus for bikers is that you can often park right outside.

Visited yesterday for breakfast with the other half. Looks a bit gloomy from the outside but it's a gem of a place. Both had the full English, big plentiful portions, nice sausage and bacon, not rolling around in oil and grease. Pot of tea with free refill, free refill coffees and a loyalty card for hot drinks. Staff were friendly... More

cold & hungry, I needed a treat so headed into Arabica. Superb coffee washed down an excellent bap stuffed with freshly cooked bacon & mushroom. Thank you, Rosie & team:-)

This is the best place to stop and be Taken care of. Superb Staff, excellent food and prices. The whole place was spotless too. Recommended to anyone, local or traveling through. We go to Teesside regularly from Lincolnshire and will stop off here every time.
