A charming old home converted into a restaurant. It is a local hang out offering rather standard and uninspiring food selection in a very inspiring setup and location. Standing in (long) line(s) to order your food and and waiting long time to get it is not exactly what I desire. But if you have time to hang out and don't... More

This was the first meal I had during my first visit to LA, and it was perfect. Not only is the atmosphere excellent for all size groups, but the menu selection is diverse, the food delicious, and the service is prompt and courteous. Aroma is wonderful for a casual lunch or a charming date. You will likely want to order... More

I will admit I am a tourist but was taken to this cafe by a local friend of mine after he gave me a tour of LA. This cafe was exactly what I pictured when I thought of an outdoor California cafe. You order your food at a counter and then can sit anywhere inside, out front along the street,... More

We love the Aroma Cafe and go there fairly often. The food is always good the desserts are some of the best in the city. What makes it so special is the atmosphere. We always sit outside, which is most of the seating because we can bring our dog. Very dog friendly, good food. Everything we are looking for in... More

You know this place rocks when it is completely crowded at 3:00pm on a Sunday. Lots and lots of seating. You order & pay at the counter and then you're given a number. A server will later find you by this number in order to deliver your food. Come here for coffee and over the top desserts or come for... More

Nothing fancy but simple (and sometimes healthy) dishes in a great outdoor environment. Salads and breakfast items are fantastic.

I love Armoa's cozy atmosphere. It's like hanging out in a very cute & stylish patio. The food is always delicious, during this visit I ordered their soup of the day, ginger carrot -mmm!

If you want a good cappuccino, yummy sweets, exotic teas, and quality cafe food...this is the spot. I can't even begin to describe how good the salads and sandwiches are. However, because this spot is so busy you cannot expect the greatest of service. That won't stop me from coming back though, I love coming here when I need a... More
