Arabic is my favorite coffee shop in the Portland area. They have good coffee, the friendliest baristas, and great toast. Plus, it's delightfully cozy in their small shop, if you should choose to stay.
While I am not a coffee connoisseur, I know what I like, and Arabica is it! Their espresso is delicious (I usually get an Americano), but a few days ago I sprung for a cappuccino and was delighted to see this fancy little foam art.
Bagels with lots of cream cheese, ladies with lots of tattoos, and boys who are easy on the eyes... Arabica has all that too.
