Service was remarkably terrible. There was only one person in front of me in line (who ordered two plain coffees that were dispensed from an urn on the counter) and it still took a full ten minutes to get my latte. (I walked in at 1:34 and out at 1:45) The three people working were gossiping, playing on their phones and completely ignoring the growing line. I've never seen anyone move so slowly in my life. The flavor of the coffee was good, but it was lukewarm at best. You'd think that ten minutes would be long enough to steam the milk, but evidently not.

My favorite coffee shop in Portland. I love the window in front for people watching. There are also private tables the back for reading and working. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. Arabica has a great selection of tea and the espresso drinks are exceptional. I would also recommend their biscuits and chewy chocolate granola bar if you're feeling peckish. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Rude barista, was paying no attention to what he was doing and poured me the end of the pot of coffee, full of grounds.Asked for a straw (as I have arm injuries & am in a cast and its hard to drink from the cup) and all I got was rude remarks about how I shouldn't use straws. I used to go here, but there are plenty of better places in town for coffee

Great lattes and amazing tea selections. They had a whole separate menu for teas. And they do this great program where if you buy their teas (which by the way come in small mason jars) you can refill them for a reduced price. You come back with the empty jar and they refill it. Less waste! Good place to sit and read as there is a lot of space. Friendly staff!

This is a great spot if you're looking to get some work done or simply just want a cup of coffee. They make a mean cup of Joe and have a cozy spot in the back. My only complaint is that it is a bit narrow, but don't let this deter you from sticking around for a hot cozy beverage!

Thank God for good coffee, almond milk AND Splenda. I am a creature of habit and finding a good americano has been nearly impossible in Portland. Also, I can’t seem to find Splenda and almond milk in the same place, but arabica has made me a happy tourist. My husband got the drip, a raspberry crumble and the kids shared a chocolate chip cookie. All were fantastic. What’s better then that? There were TOYS for the kids. Pros-Good for everyone from babies to retired people-toys! The kids played with wood blocks as my husband and I enjoyed our coffee-the employees were super friendly-good coffee. Really good. I am from seattle, home of some of the best coffee...and I was a happy girl. -super spacious interior. Lots of places to sit, and yet not crowded at all-WiFi passcode on the tableCons-we didn’t find it sooner :)

I would describe this place as fine. Coffee is fine, staff is fine, ambience is fine. It's a fine option. Are there better? Yes, not two blocks away actually but to each their own.

I realize this is primarily a coffee house, however my wife, daughter and I spent over 9 dollars on hot chocolate before the horse carriage rides on Sunday.The hot chocolate was absolutely disgusting. It was essentially steamed milk, that was warm at best. Often hot chocolate is overly sweet and sometimes unbearable. This was just the opposite. It literally tasted like only steamed milk. On top of it all, the steamed milk tasted super funky and it took about 8 minutes to steam. Love supporting local business so it bummed me out that we ended up tossing them out and going to Dunkin Donuts instead. I’m sure coffee is amazing so I’d definitely want to give it a second chance in hopes that this was just an isolated experience.

best coffee in Portland, Maine! I used to hang out here and read hipster magazines and try to hit on straight guys. boy how times changed! now I'm living in Portland, Oregon and going to coffee shops and hitting on straight guys. great location and space. 80% of the staff are sexy cool people, they might not be the nicest people in the world, but they're pretty nice, and they can make a great all foam machiatto

In there right now and very disappointed. One the seating area in the back with the couch smells of urine. Second their Wifi isn't working and this wasn't made clear. Third the yogurt parfait had nearly no taste and was like eating a cold sponge. Please don't fall to Dunkin standards!

This place is overpriced and takes way too long. I went in 15 minutes before my work shift, waited 10 and realized i wouldnt be able to get my order in. i went back on my break, it took me 25 minutes to get an iced coffee and a buttermilk biscut (which are premade).

Bring a pair of headphones. I was trying to work on something, and the staff was being quite loud talking about topics loudly between each other about personal things. It wasn't anything bad, just loud. (Mainly one staff member) I am all for a fun workplace, but it really made me regret not bringing something to drown out the sound. It also seemed like one of the staff members was being trained. The coffee is also okay, so based upon coffee and experience 3/5. I've had the coffee a few times, but have only stayed around in the shop twice.

I have to give the venue high rating for the property and it's astonishing views, beautiful setting and not bad for music selection but the staffs some to be less knowledgeable of doing what they do(they experiences probably come from StarBucks), just saying. I ordered vanilla chai tea and it tasted like hot water covered with foam at the top. That's the same sh***t Starbucks does.
