Excellent food and coffee

Wonderfully fresh sandwiches and breakfast foods (chopped veggie salads and eggs). There are now 20 (or soon will be) Aroma franchise restaurants in Toronto and vicinity. Originally an Israeli chain, they have spread slowly abroad, but Toronto is really lucky to have so many. Maybe the best... read more

We tried Aroma's salads and sandwiches, and found the food decent, but not outstanding. Both were rather bland - and that's from people who generally prefer food that is not spiced or strong tasting. The salad was mostly chopped up tomatoes and cucumbers that lacked any flavour, with equally tasteless quinoa. The mint was the only flavour that stood out.... More

I went to 2300 Yonge location in Toronto today and was hugely disappointed. I ordered a medium coffee and an almond crossoint. Firstly, no one asked me if I wanted my crossoint heated and did so without asking. So I got a somewhat burnt warmed up crossoint with a lukewarm coffee from a thermos that was almost empty for a...

Coffee that is made with real knowledge, no sugar needed! Salads and breads are made on the premise- Very Fresh..and delicious... if you feel like having a little sweet with your coffee... they are all excellent.. and hot!, Definitely puts to shame the "big" Coffee chains.

Somehow I can't find the location for Shops at Don Mills - I love going to this place, all the time and specially in summer! This time I tried their affogato - super good and I really liked that they have small serving! I always love their coffee and of course the chocolate comes with it makes the experience awesome...

Great coffee and atmosphere. Dark, dirty washrooms. Only one toilet stall lighted and the other two too dark to use comfortably, same complaints from other customers. Clean up the joint.

After reading rave reviews about its hot chocolate, I decided to try some and headed towards this place. The hot chocolate was visually appealing and came in a nice glass cup. It was basically chocolate bars and milk and you mix the two. They also gave an extra wrapped piece for you to enjoy. But compared to hot chocolate at... More

This is the best drink in the city in the summertime, imo, Potato bureka + ice lemon-mint = heaven. Wish Aroma was open later, as it would be the perfect lead in to a concert at Lee's Palace.
