Cafe Brio is a pleasant spot for a light meal, a coffee beverage, or both, featuring Brio's ever delicious bakery. It is clean, light, and airy, and in my experience the staff are prompt, courteous and engaging. Seating is available outside. It can get busy,...More

Coffee was excellent and the food was delicious. I started with the chocolate pudding for breakfast (yes I did) and then had the eggs with toast and bacon. I only wish I was with others so I could share the lemon cake with meringue. Maybe...More

Hubby and I stopped for breakfast and were not disappointed. He had quiche, I had classic Brio, both very good. We left with a box of pastries for later on today. Good coffee and nice ambiance, too. Bright, cheery place to stop for casual breakfast.

It was a rainy day so we sat inside at a table with people we didn't know, which was fun. Coffee here was excellent. I got curried carrot soup and a jalpeno cheese croissant. Very delicious.

When it comes to baking, Brio has a magic oven. Top notch pastries. Croissants are incredible. They have vegetarian options, but nothing for vegans or gluten-free folks unless it's black coffee. Cozy atmosphere, great for to-go sandwiches or a sit-down meal.

We always love to visit this spot, a favorite while in Arcata. Their quiche is yummy and their decaf cappuccino memorable. Also great bacon!

Enjoyed eggs with Kale and coffee outside the cafe. Great service and an even better people watching spot! Nearby shopping made it an area you'll want to linger.

This little boulangerie style cafe is reminiscent of a European sidewalk cafe. It smells wonderful and the case of pasties and breads is shiny and enticing. We had the Benedict in a croissant - they must make each flaky croissant with a pound of butter...More
