This is my favorite breakfast place in Old San Juan, so I took my friends there on a recent visit. They are super picky. One requested that her omelette be cooked well, but not crispy. The other said she didn't care. Both raved about their omelettes. I had one of the breakfast specials before I took my friends, and it... More

I was introduced to Aromas through the Flavors of San Juan Food Tour. During the tour, my family and I had mallorca bread for the first time. We all loved it! We loved it so much that on our final full day on the island, we went back for an early lunch. I had a simple cheese sandwich with the... More

Aromas grows and roasts its own coffee. It was great even for the occasional coffee drinker. It offers the same choices of add-ins as that certain national chain that has stars in its eye. To sum up - Yum! The establishment is intimate in the retail portion. There is also a back section where the product is packaged for shipping.... More

Came here as part of the Flavors of San Juan walking tour. Had a ham and cheese on Mallorca bread and mango ice tea. Food was absolutely delicious.

We have been cruising to San Juan for years, we are crew members, we have seen and done everything but we continue to come back to this wonderful quaint restaurant. My husband and I are always greeted by the Manager and have the best meals here. Thank you for years of great service and food. Jojo

We have been dinning in Old San Juan for 21 years for all 3 meals and never seen Aromas. By far it is better and finer than some of the better known breakfast places there. The prices are reasonable for the level of flavor, service, and presentation of the dishes. Although it is a little bit apart from the main... More

Me and my little princes had lunch here and it was good but the lack of good service and the food took almost 45 minutes!!! I asked what was taking so long and they keep saying it will just one more minute. The food was good but the service was disappointing.

A group of us were here on a Saturday morning about 10 am, and when we walked in it was empty. The service was okay but the food took a HUGE amount of time to come out especially for being the only ones in the restaurant. I had the french toast which was good but certainly nothing to write home... More
