Stopped here for a breakfast on our way for a break in Yorkshire Moors. Although busy service was very friendly and efficient. Full English was good value for money. Would recommend.

Stopped for a hearty breakfast on the way from a weekend away visiting and sight seeing. Ordered the Full English. Over cooked greasy egg, no tomatoes, black pudding, hash browns nor fried bread. How that can be described as full is beyond me. All were available to but as extras on top of the 7.95 already being charged, very poor!... More

This coffee shop was a hidden gem for coffee. Outside the cafe looks dark because of the black and orange paintwork instead of the current trend of vintage. But the coffee is one of the nicest I've had in a long time, beautiful flavour - definitely worth a visit

I have eaten here a few times now and there is always a smiling welcome. Service is good as is the food. Reasonably priced and there is never any rush to 'get you out' . I enjoy watching the people go by with a lovely cup of tea.

I stopped here on the way back to the north west from Teesside to break the journey and for a spot of lunch. The tuna and cheese panini was lovely and warm and the salad and home made coleslaw that accompanied it was very fresh and tasty. Service was quick and efficient too. The coffee was good though the fruit... More

Today myself and my hubby visited Thirsk to go shopping. We called into Arabica for a coffee and a breakfast. The cafe faces the market place and is close to the centre parking. My midi breakfast was average, the plate came with beans and toast but I don't eat them so my plate had a single rasher of bacon one... More

Called in for morning coffee our first time ever. Greeted by very warm and friendly staff. Even though we didn't eat we looked at the food menu and were surprised at the price of the lunches served from noon to 3pm very good value indeed. Well worth the visit all reasonably priced.

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
