Cosy Place

Ordered the duck and egg and apple strudel. My poached eggs were "poached" properly. The egg whites were literally watery and running so had to push it back. The next plate was served really quickly with proper poached eggs. The overall taste is very pleasant. Can be a little heavy so have this with an empty tummy. The apple strudel was really yummy and presentation was appealing. Definitely a must try. The portion is quite substantial so you can share it between 3 friends for a dessert.

super spot for brunch!

If you're looking for some delicious food and perfect eggs Benedict near Serangoon then Arbite is the place to go! Had a superlative experience thrice with great food and service. The staff was very accommodating and even opened half hour earlier when we reached there with our infants. Since the place is closed it can get bit noisy with loud patrons next to you!

If you're looking for a quiet cafe, skip this place.

The thing about Arbite is... it's freaking-noisy. I mean it. Felt like the room/cafe was too small and everyone's almost raising their voices talking. It's not exactly your quiet cafe like The Coffee Daily but those really busy and noisy cafe. I was pretty annoyed because I had to raise my voice a couple of times when I was talking to Mike whose just seated opposite me.   They offer quite a extensive choice of food and I thought that I should try the truffle fries (the smell was just too tempting to resist) well but, I was a little disappointed with it. The truffle fries smelt good but doesn't taste as good as I expected it to be. Maybe because I'm a little biased against it because it's steak cut and not shoestring. I rather have my skinny fries. Those steak cuts are way too much and not even with any truffle taste. I ordered Smoked Salmon Florentine. I must say that when it was served to me, I was disappointed at the portion and particularly only one poached egg. I was expecting myself to get two. But as I started feasting on it, I realize the portion was just right. (but also it could be because I was stuffed with the steak cut potatoes... so I really can't tell.) Mike had the Arbite Breakfast which I must say, it's huge. For a big eater like him, that filled his tummy to the brim (together with the steak fries I must emphasis because it's just so filling). We both were happy with our mains, just that his sauteed mushrooms was horrible. Tasteless, totally. But other then that, it was good.

Quite Nice

After successfully hunting down the cafe, we were welcomed by a clean and chic interior. Amongst the 3 of us, we had: 1) Mushroom Soup - this came as part of a set and it's quite good. Not out of a can for sure. 2) Seared Seabass in cream sauce - expected fishy taste but it was actually very delightful. Flavourful but not heavy with the cream sauce. 3) Baked Seafood Pasta - fresh ingredients with the pasta done al dente. Though I found the pasta slightly bland, easily fixed with a few dash of salt. 4) Hamburger - daughter had that she liked it enough. 5) Cheesecake - these came complimentary because my daughter was enjoying her lunch with such looks of happiness. Haha... Cheesecake was nice enough. Not the heavy type without losing the flavour. Will return if in the area.

Bad food, bad service.

Service staff at Arbite are rather cold and uninviting. The menu doesn't seem to be carefully planned out and their tea selection is lackluster, I find that this place has been terribly oversold.
