“Consistency”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Frequent customer for breakfasts. Once of the better in the area. Great menu selection and food quality is very consistent. Only negative is that we did not like them packing up furniture around us 30 min before closing time. Otherwise well recommended.

“Frequently Returning Customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I love everything about arabica & pride myself on calling it my regular breakfast nook. From the mini dutch pancakes, to their eggs Benedict & their asparagus foccaccia sandwiches, there is never a bad meal. The foccaccia sandwiches are fairly large & the wait staff regularly give me a polystyrene container to take the remaining home with me as they have a licensed takeaway store too. I'm not a massive "sweet" fan myself but their cake cabinet is always full of fresh inviting treats. I would thoroughly recommend trying their mango smoothie / frappe! You won't be disappointed!

“Pleasant enough brunch venue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Have been here for brunch on a few Sundays. Parking is easy and the restaurant is quite pleasantly set up with a large covered outdoor eating area hugged by trees and bushes and some booth tables inside. It can get quite noisy and squishy when its busy and service sometimes suffers from this, but we are all human. The menu is reasonably extensive with choices to suit most tastes, but I feel the food is a little on the expensive and ordinary side for the quality of product delivered.

“Great ambience, very friendly, courteous staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went for a girls only lunch. The light menu was interesting and varied. The, mainly, al fresco cafe is on a busy road, but the setup and trees make them unobtrusive. We were most impressed with the staff, so helpful, accommodating and courteous, though probably not enough staff. The meals we chose were freshly prepared, appetising and well presented. However, the downside was that our meals took over 45 mins and we were not the only ones asking about late meals. Would have given more stars, apart from this.
