I loved Cafe Arabica. We visited for brunch on a Sunday morning. We sat outside with views of the beautiful tree-lined streets and birds singing in the trees - such a beautiful atmosphere! Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. My smashed avocado with feta and a poached egg was perfect.

Have previously had coffee and pofferjetes and things were ok. Had ordered lunch this day and dish was off ... they didn't offer a replacement or refund.

I went to cafe Arabica recently for a catch up with friends. I've been there in previous times and is been quite decent and also had clean cutlery, tables, floors and a relatively breezy location. However, recently the establishment has become less than satisfactory with cleanliness. I found a grain of rice stuck to my fork, and some orange I... More

Cafe Arabica has been a cafe I have not visited for a long time but have always enjoyed due to the gluten free options. Since my last visit however I have to report that the gluten free options are better than ever before with me pleasantly surprised and spoilt for choice with the options for morning tea. There was not... More

Lovely fresh salad sandwiches filled with fabulous fillings. Great Merlo coffee. Returned for breakfast next morning, my husband loved the French Toast and my eggs were perfect and enjoyed our coffee again. Excellent service from the young male barista, great outside dining in a lovely flourishing tree lined street. Great job, thank you.

I have revisited this cafe on several occasions but am disappointed that the coffee is still pretty bad, too watery each time. Breakfast was average. I will give it one more go but if nothing has improved then I will move on.
