Stopped off to grab a coffee on a lengthy road trip. Always keen to go to a locally owned place and this looked nice. Very well presented. The woman working immediately greeted me and asked me how my weekend was, she appeared very happy and had a really friendly attitude. The coffee she then made me was beautiful, just as... More

Stopped off on our way to Northumberland on the motorcycle, used this cafe before and the lady is always welcoming. As the name suggests you get an excellent coffee. The breakfast (full of course) was exceptional in every way and set me up for the day. Great little cafe, very clean, very welcoming and wouldn't go anywhere else when in... More

Our 3rd visit for breakfast/brunch and once again wonderful. Very friendly service, attentive without being overbearing. The breakfast itself is great and we can heartily recommend it.......don't order the big one unless thats your meal for the day!! You won't fit anything else in. Lovely atmosphere and a very warm welcome awaits you - wouldn't hesitate to recommend :)

Superb service. Lovely coffee served with hot milk. A lot of bacon in the bagel and the bacon roll was large. Excellent.

I had a nice coffee here and the welcome was friendly. The place could be lit a bit brighter. I also spent an interesting few minutes working out what the numbered blocks on the wall were all about - a good way to pass the time perhaps!

We had no recommendations for restaurants but came across Arabica.. What a gem! The four in the party each had a different meal and each enjoyed. The lady choosing salad was impressed by the variety of items it contained. Service was first-class. The restaurant was very clean, so much so that the toilet had a "toilet seat sanitiser". How novel.... More

Ended up here following a disappointing day out. We were looking for somewhere to eat and found this gem in the centre of Thirsk. Both staff were very attentive and friendly - polite from start to finish. Food was very reasonably priced - food and drinks for 3 just over £20. Nice choice of milkshakes made a change from the...

As soon as we walked in we felt welcome with a pleasant hello. They gave us time to peruse the menu, whilst ordering the waitress noticed that I was getting some tablets and she offered to get me some water. The order came through really quickly, the teacake that we got with our drinks was perfect. Overall a very pleasant... More

We needed somewhere to stop off for breakfast so popped in here and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Nice breakfast choices, lots to choose from and the rest of the menu looked good too. Comfortable setting and newspapers to read. Staff were very good, friendly and quick with service. If I was local, I'd be a regular!

Thank LYPud
