Description: Located amidst the buzzing nightlife of the Hamra district in Jeddah, and situated near the Red Sea, Caffe Aroma is one of the city's favorite and most frequented restaurants. We are one of the largest indoor restaurants in Jeddah, providing an extensive food menu, and coffee. Coffee has been an integral part of the human diet for centuries and has its origins in East Africa and the Arabian peninsula. Actually the English word 'coffee' comes from the Arabic word for coffee, pronounced 'qahwe'. Our passion for coffee was the motivation for the establishment of Caffe Aroma. The concept for Caffe Aroma was born out of the necessity for an Italian style coffee house in a city dominated by Lebanese style cafes. Thus Caffe Aroma was established in the year 1996 with a simple mission; to provide good coffee within a beautiful setting, and unrivalled service for customer satisfaction which is second-to-none. Here at Caffe Aroma, we serve only the best quality food and coffee because we believe that our clientele deserve nothing less. The ambience, along with our delectable food provide a nearly utopian experience. Initially we specialized in quality coffee, sandwiches and roasted coffee beans, but in the year 1999, we expanded our operations to include a world-class restaurant to meet our loyal customers' demands. By offering a mouthwatering array of dishes, we evolved from a humble cafe into a five-star restaurant which caters to all. Our service and decor provide a unique environment for all our customers whether dining or enjoying a cup of coffee while puffing on one of our many flavored shishas. Caffe Aroma is a perfect stop for friends to gather and enjoy themselves, as well as a great place for families to enjoy quality time together while enjoying great food. Caffe Aroma reflects the cosmopolitan nature of the city of Jeddah in that we provide culturally diverse cuisine, bringing to you the most beloved dishes from around the globe. We are proud of our evolution and continuing growth since the year 1996. Our expansion in 2001, when we launched our branch in Dubai, is a testament to our customers' satisfaction. Many people have suggested that our success is due to the right balance and winning 'formula' of our food, coffee, shisha and good music; but if truth be told we know that despite our signature 'formula', our success comes from you, our loyal customers.

Recently went here for the first - and last - time for dinner. The place was not busy at all, however, despite this, service was very slow and, even worse, nothing served to the three of us was hot; not the starters nor the main courses. I sent my starter (garlic bread) back as it was cold. Instead of making... More

Cafe Aroma is one of the places I really like in Jeddah. Food is not particularly great but the service is always at its best and the ambiance is more than wonderful to say the least. Try taking photos there. You will love the colors at every corner :)

Arrived for breakfast. We tried to order three lots of poached eggs. We just could not make the waiter understand what we wanted. Is there anything special about poached eggs for breakfast? Once we thought we had managed to make the waiter understand he left for the kitchen. About half an hour later, three lots of badly fried eggs arrived.... More

This is a restaurant that seems to specialize in family dining, with privacy partitions around the tables, the food served very efficiently, and prepared in a traditional style. Every dish was a taste treat! I look forward to another visit.
