Likes: good coffee and some good pastries. Dislikes: noisy voices and constant, very loud coffee machines, long line to order, then wait for delivery. Stuffy air, very steep charge for soy milk, (am lactose intolerant.)

It was crowded on Memorial Day weekend and dinner was busy, but worth waiting for. Oysters were succulent and sweet and fresh from the nearby bay. All the vegetables were wonderful. This is a bakery with wonderful fruit tarts, pannacotte and cakes. Really flavorful strawberries...More

Café Brio seems to be THE place for coffee in Arcata. It is on the corner of the plaza. The baristas and servers are very nice; particularly Mary.
