Aroma is quirky, brilliant for those with food allergies, individual, good value and staffed by friendly efficient staff who know their stuff! You don't feel rushed and the food is carefully prepared. I love the fact that they use local ingredients and turn them into attractive food that appeals to all your senses rather than the pious feeling of it... More

My partner and i popped in to Aroma whilst we were in Lyme Regis for the day and heard they did gluten free food. Was not disapointed! I had their breakfast and it was fab! Best gluten free brekki i've ever had! The bacon etc was perfectly cooked and all the ingredients are locally sourced. They have a huge range... More

I am a complete gourmet coffee freak, so was amazed to find a real independent coffee shop in Lyme Regis. The coffee was of a real high standard and the cakes were amazing. We went back the following day for breakfast, and we weren't disappointed. Great food, lovely people.

Just popped in after picking up a discount voucher from the Lyme Regis museum opposite, and we all enjoyed a really tasty fresh milkshake. Hope to come back again one day!

I'm so used to going out for a coffee, lunch, snack and having either just an ordinary black coffee whilst my companions sit and much their way through delicious cakes and biscuits. I've sort of got used to it so now, when I do eat out (I'm coeliac and dairy intolerant), I pick what I can have rather than what... More

I have visited Aroma twice now, ( three times actually, as we were there twice today! ) last year and this and have found the service and the food to be fantastic. The staff are very friendly and on a slow day you can get some amusing banter going. Thanks Dewi, you made us feel like regulars, even tho it... More

Couldn't believe it - instead of the dried-out or plastic-wrapped gluten free offering that I am usually presented with in a café, at Aroma, the whole selection of cakes and biscuits were gluten-free. I was in heaven! It was a shame that we didn't find this wonderful little gem earlier on in our holiday but once we found it, we... More

A wonderful, beautiful bohemian cafe in Lyme Regis. Very different to the usual cafes in Dorset, it feels like a small East Village boutique coffee house. Lovely atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and wonderful cakes and lunchtime treats. Best of all, the coffee, tea and hit chocolate selection is second to none in Lyme. I can't recommend this place highly... More

Had the best lunch here today. Masses of choice completely catering for vegetarian, vegan, gluten and diary free diets. Just amazingly refreshing when I usually have a choice if one or two items from a menu. Just scrummy scrambled egg on toast on gluten free bread. My daughters had lively jacket potatoes and a cream cheese and cucumber wrap. Lovely... More

Aroma is a small and unassuming little cafe bar just a stone throw from the beach. Blink and you could miss it but if you go in you'll appreciate the relaxed and very friendly atmosphere. We have always been served with truly great food and at a very reasonable price. The guys that run this place have got it just... More
