I found it difficult to choose one entree, as the menu was so extensive and appealing. I finally settled on the Moroccan red lentil soup and the Mediterranean shrimp couscous, all delicious!

Amazing food and service at this small, cozy restaurant. We had the special, Shrimp and Cheese Grits! Delicious! Our dessert was awesome and our server let us get the cake before our food so we made sure had it! The portions of dessert are HUGE. My husband and I shared and it was more than enough! Highly recommend!

Cafe Arazu is nestled in one of the little old buildings in downtown Newburgh. We sat outside and were not disappointed. The food is always fresh and spectacular. I always get the chicken salad and it never misses. I also got the dessert and it was spot on. If you are ever in Newburgh, you must make this a stop... More

Since it opened several years ago I've enjoyed coming here, especially in warmer months when we can sit outside and enjoy the views. I'm a big fan of the chicken shwarma and Penny's slaw is fabulous. This trip I was with a friend who is gluten free, so she asked for the shwarma to not be in a wrap but... More

I enjoyed this restaurant due to the outdoor seating and the view of the river. At sunset it's really nice when the heat and humidity are low. Food is good. I generally like Mediterranean food which is what I order and it's very good.

Outdoor seating provides a great atmosphere. Helpful to make a reservation. They have limited seating. My favorite is the chicken shwarma with seasoned potato wedges. All of the sandwiches are good.

For a tiny little town, Newburgh packs a punch with the Café Arazu! I'm off to a good start with local cuisine - because this place is an easy five star rating. You MUST order dessert. Any cheese cake or cake-like dessert - just order it - you won't be disappointed. I can recommend the spinach/chicken lavosh w/fries (AMAZING fries,... More
