The best coffee in the west of Ireland!
Try the Lucy Wrap...you will do yourself a favour!
If you need a more spacious and proper bathroom, go round the corner to the Savoy hotel.

Have been here a few times for breakfast, and it is always very good, but Arabica is really my go-to café for the perfect take-away latte.

This cafe on Shannon St. is my regular haunt for a breakaway retreat from a busy work environment. The staff here are exceptionally friendly, and the good-humoured banter between the staff and customers is an atmosphere that few eateries attain. Service is very prompt, which is another reason why this place is a popular venue for business people with tight lunchtime schedules. The fare consists of wraps, bagels, sandwiches, paninis, soups and salads. My personal favourites are the Empire Bagel and Pesto Salad. The level of cleanliness is always immaculate, and the premises has benefitted from a recent refurbishment.

But don't take my word for it, the high proportion of regulars in here is a testament to how good this place is.

Passing through limerick for the day we came across arabica coffee co and from the outside it seemed to be worth a visit came in and sat down read the menu and after 5 mins realised nobody was going to take our order so got up and ordered off the server behind the counter, went to the bathroom ! It was so dirty layers of dirt everywhere sat back down and waited for food and coffee it arrived eventually when pouring milk into the cups realised the jug was covered with congealed yellow milk stains inside jug,food came with grated carrot only it was very poor quality,tasteless if I closed my eyes I wouldn't know what I was eating my companion was of the same option nobody asked if our meal was ok the server was busy talking to friends who came in, left with a sour taste in my mouth, no point refurbishing the inside if the basics are ignored but this seems to be trend in a lot of coffee shops will definitely avoid in the future, worked out overpriced for what was delivered

this is being reviewed under the same guise as restaurants in limerick. it is not a restaurant - it is a coffee shop that serves decent coffee but very average food - i.e. plastic ham and rubber chicken in toasted sandwiches, wraps or god help us those awful paninis that are still so popular in this country. And be warned everthing is very expensive, if you want a decent lunch go elsewhere. if you want a coffee and to relax reading a magazine or newspaper this is fine, but i would hate to think of tourists visiting this place because of its rating on trip advisor as some sort of fine dining place, it is not - to reitierate, it is a coffee shop that sells average food at exorbetant prices. if you want good value and good quality for lunch then go to Zest in Pery Square.
