Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great coffee! First and most important, this was a GOOD cup of coffee. I had the spiced tiffin which was delicious. The staff were so friendly and attentive, it felt like nothing was too much effort. My first trip to Arbroath and if I ever...find my back I’ll come here for coffee :-)More

Wonderful place. Bit more expensive but if the food is really good, you don't mind paying the little extra. They even have a lovely comfy seated area for breastfeeding Mums which I have not seen before, so very impressed especially as a family member had...been out one day for lunch a couple of years ago (not here) and got complaint from a gentleman there so more areas like this need to be available as obviously this natural act still causes disgust for some people. The staff at Cafe Barista were wonderful too. So friendly and smiley.More

We were made welcome by all the staff as soon as we entered, even though the cafe was very busy. Our food was very tasty and piping hot, at a very reasonable price. We will be back when we next visit Arbroath.

After a long drive and dropping off Mrs Significant other, I went for a wander. Lived in Arbroath as a boy many of your Human Moons ago. This place is welcoming, the food quickly served and very well prepared, then I had an unnecessarily large...Rhubarb pie, it was Marvellous (note capital M). Good craic too. Well done all.More

Popped in with a mate for a breakfast roll (lorne and black pudding). Place was very busy and staff rushed off their feet. It was also one of the waitresses first day and to her credit, given how busy it was, she coped admirably. Despite...it being so busy, staff still took the time to chat and make sure everything was ok. Great atmosphere about this place. Recommended.More

Had the 6 item breakfast which tasted great and was good value. The staff were friendly too. The rest of the menu and offers such as afternoon tea looked great too.

Came across during a recent visit to Arbroath. My husband had an all day breakfast and I had a coronation chicken sandwich. Good choice of dishes on the menu and well priced.

So me and my family came to this cafe yesterday for some lunch, the staff were very polite and attentive to me and my family, my mother and father ordered coffee which they both said was the best they have had and they have been...to many places, My partner has a milk allergy so was offered soya milk which he said was delicious and was very happy that they had alternative milks in to order, we all ordered hot food which came out very Fast and was piping hot. My family all thoroughly enjoyed our food and said it was very tasty we had some scones and tray bakes after which were delicious. My mother has been very anxious about going out since COVID started but the cafe is very well set up following every precaution to stop the spread! It is very clean and the staff are following procedure. The owner was very friendly and chatted away with my mother which made her feel even more at ease. The overall experience was brilliant and me and my family agreed We would definitely returnMore

My favourite place to eat as food is always beautifully prepared and reasonably priced, however the attitude of the staff and owners is second to none. I visit very frequently with my family and none of us has ever had any complaints, even when our...youngest member invades with her wee doll’s pram. No matter what time we visit there is plenty of choice whether it’s a breakfast or lunch or just a drink and a cake, the same great service is always the same. The fact that is always busy and has a lot of regulars like us speaks volumes.More

We popped in here for coffee and cake after a walk at Arbroath. Lovely cafe serving a huge range of dishes, including pensioners specials! Staff were very pleasant and adhering to social distancing/hygiene guidelines. Will definitely return here for lunch some time!
