What a great bistro! Food was excellent and the service was even better. Fresh and delicious!

Review №2

Great friendly service and fantastic coffee. Had the Mole drip coffee with cinnamon, chocolate and spice notes. Absolutely gorgeous cup of joe. Will definitely be going back!

Review №3

Nice place and atmosphere, staff was not the friendliest sorta dry personality for a cafe.

Review №4

Would give this place 5 stars, but came from out of town to visit family and whenever I'm in town I love to get coffee here! Anyways, I went on a Sunday, noticed they closed earlier at 2:30. I rushed and made sure I got there before then. I pulled in at 2:15 and thought I made it on time. Their lights and all were still on, then by the time I got out of my car door, their doors were locked and turned off their lights. I was pretty disappointed since I don't know when I'll be back next. I like to purchase local, but notice a lot of these local places like to close early!

I have been stopping here once every week for probably the past few months for coffee and a breakfast pastry. This place has a cool, modern and comfortable atmosphere. There are many different selections of seating so you definitely have a variety of ways to get comfortable. They have a small stage where local musicians preform and there are poetry readings and the like. They have “leave a book-take a book” available. They sell a wide array of breakfasts, lunch and dinner options. My favorite is the Barbarian burger. What a name!Their coffee is comparable to Starbucks in quality. My favorite thing about their drip coffee is they always have a good selection and you can refill if you dine in! They also offer Kiedrowski's bakery items too. Stop here for sure for good coffee and really nice people. Going there once or twice a week and the barista always remembers my order. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Review №6

Best Coffee in the area. They have a great selection of food, friendly atmosphere, and senior deals. Shop local!

Review №7

Coffee snobs pleasant surprise. Amongst the other big name coffee places was this little coffee shop. Great coffee, ,"Torry" was chipper waiter

Review №8

Excellent service, Erin is an excellent barista and is always extremely helpful and friendly!

Review №9

Great breakfast! Forgot it was there, will be back.

Review №10

UNIQUELY REFRESHING!!!! CLEAN!! Cozily welcoming. Marie conjured me up something she makes for herself. It was iced and delicious! Quite the menu of beverage options. If there's possibly an item you don't see, they'll happily oblige!! There is a food menu as well. Staff is sociable and stayed busy refilling and cleaning!

Review №11

They have a great singer named Linda Turley that plays and performs there occasionally. I've only seen videos of her but she has a refreshing voice and sings like she loves it. Don't miss her if you see her on the entertainment schedule. She's great!

Review №12

Had the funky monkey blended, so good!

Review №13

My husband and I recently moved to Amherst and decided to try the Arabica Coffee House. Big disappointment. The coffee, which were in carafes, was luke warm. We split a tuna melt on Texas toast with sweet potato fries as a side. The tuna melt did not contain any cheese and was merely on toasted bread. It was barely edible. The fries were limp and barely warm. We will definitely skip the Arabica Coffee House.

Review №14

Best little secret in Amherst for awesome coffee and brunch. Speciality coffee is great but the in-house stuff is fantastic too. Great service and a lovely quaint atmosphere. Awesome location. One of my favorite spots! This place is open on Sundays not sure why Google says they are closed.

Review №15

I like the big open dinning room, some of the chairs are worn out tho, good food & big portions. The staff is friendly and fast.

Review №16

We got coffee at the establishment and it was excellent. We took food to go. I had an almond chicken sandwich and it was excellent! My only suggestion would be to have the staff straighten the chairs as needed.

Review №17

Arabica is a nice quiet place to enjoy a lunch or breakfast or just a cup of coffee. A nice group of people frequent the place and a nice staff of young people are there to fill your wants

Review №18

Third time here. Each time with fair tasting food and terrible service. I will not return.

Review №19

Very disappointed. I am a good customer for years. Went on a busy Sunday, expecting to wait for a takeout. Ordered, waited 20 minutes and was asked if I wanted a hot drink remade. I asked how much longer and was told 20 MORE minutes with no reason. Asked the girl refunding my meal why, she says there are 10 orders in. I said I KNOW, MINES ONE OF THEM. To add insult to insult, I wasnt refunded my full amount. NEVER will return.

Review №20

I go with a group and they take care of us well!

Review №21

Perfect place to work remotely

Review №22

They always make the coffee right. The food is good though it doesn't come out the quickest you're not waiting too long. I can always find a seat by an outlet to sit with the computer. Bathrooms are clean which is and always an indicator that the kitchen's clean

Review №23

I haven't there in a while. They have expanded their menu. Good food and good coffee in a relaxed atmosphere.

Review №24

Review №27

Excellent food--good service--def will return!

Review №28

Unbelievable service and a very nice relaxing place

Review №29

Helpful friendly staff made a rather nice cup of Earl Grey tea.

Review №30

Great alternative to Starbucks. It feels less corporate and more small town America than the big coffee chains. My photo is the Western omelette.

Review №31

First, the girl who took our order did not hardly speak at all and when she did, she was very rude. Second, upon receiving my wrap, I noticed they got my order wrong and put items on that I asked not be on it. Third, the wraps were extremely hard to eat and very messy. No structural integrity at all. I am very disappointed and will not be coming here again. Coffees good though.

Review №32

If I could do no stars I would. No adult supervision in the place. Waited 20 mins for bowl of soup. There was only 5 customers in the place 3 were already served. Coffee was cold. Not impressive at all. I don't know how they were awarded best in Lorain County!

Review №33

Outstanding staff and coffee, if you're in the area be sure to give them a visit.

Review №34

Absolutely a wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee and a snoogle. Not to mention Ms. Autumn is the sweetest. She is an amazing lady to conversate with. Very friendly! Love the atmosphere!

Review №40

Chai tea was too strong and didn't taste good. Ordered breakfast to go and it did not smell good when they handed it to me. Both kids didn't like their pancakes

Review №41

Great service, and coffee will be back often.

Review №42

Food is always good.... the singer tonight was way too loud for the venue and I could not understand what he was singing most of the time. He is very talented with the guitar but too over powering.

Review №43

Great little coffee shop and bistro. Have had both breakfast and lunch items from their menu and have yet to be disappointed. Local music talent showcased at times and a great and inviting atmosphere for anything from a quick cup of coffee to a full meal or anywhere in between.

Review №44

Pleasant atmosphere. Nice variety menu items.

Review №45

Very clean, courteous. I love the atmosphere!

Review №46

Best food you will find at this price. Expect to wait at least ten minutes as everything is cooked to order and delicious. Awesome atmosphere and staff.

Review №47

Genuinely surprised by the quality of coffee here! And for a good price. It was actually crowded when I went (lunch during the weekday).

Review №48

Has gone downhill since losing key staff who held it together and kept it above board.

Review №49

My wife came in for an espresso when her normal coffee joint was closed and normally she won't finish her coffee when she goes somewhere new or she'll say (it's ok) when I ask her how her coffee is but she got an espresso from here and not only did she drink the whole thing but she actually liked it to

Review №50

On our 2016 Excellent Adventure from Montana to Maryland, we happened upon this fabulous Bistro in Amherst, Ohio! The Arabica Bistro was made to order. Nadine and our hosts were delightful and interested in our travels, as well as willing to create a "new" menu item for me. Addictions die hard - not that I'm trying to quit! - they braved their inaugural "Breve" for me.The deco decor was charming and warm... in a very cool re-fashioned old fire house. The town is adorable too, HOMETOWN, USA.

Review №51

Too noisy. Can not hear any conversation. Party of five for lunch and I did not get my order until everyone had been served despite several inquiries as to where my order was. No apologies. Last time I will stop there.
