We visited on our first day in California with our teenage daughters and a family friend who is a part time local and recommended the venue. The cafe was very crowded but we got a seat quite quickly. There is an excellent and vibrant atmosphere and we enjoyed sitting outside. We requested and were given table service as we agreed... More

Absolutely love Aroma cafe. Every time I visit LA I always ensure to have at least one trip to Aroma. The menu is large and everything is extremely fresh - check out the website for the menu to give you a flavour of what's on offer. Unless you get here before 10 on a weekend you will be queuing out... More

This place is a gem of Studio City. Located on Tujunga and great place to walk around if you like small, independent boutiques. There is always a line out the door, but don't worry, it moves pretty quickly. The food is delicious and their omelettes and scrambled eggs for breakfast never disappoint. The coffee is top notch ( alert, coffee... More

...this one was really very special. I know, I know, I can hear you all saying, you only ever review the decent ones, but, honestly, this really does deserve your attention. First Sunday pm, the line was right down the block. But guess what, it moved really quickly, this is an "order up fron"t place and take your number with... More

This place has really grown and often has a line out the door. It is more than just a cafe for coffee. They have great food, desserts and beverages. They have both indoor and out door seating but more out door. It is in a really quaint area. The place is like a converted house and there is garden type... More

Ordering at the counter when you enter does not seem the normal formula for a good cafe but the it works really well at Aroma. Excellent coffee and well chosen menu selections. Service is relaxed with no servers to hassle you. Lovely environment in the outdoor terrace area.

I love Aroma cafe! It is a bustling and friendly place. The deserts are deliciously displayed -the bread pudding made with croissant ,is to die for! Great selection of teas. Very cozy and never disappoints.

Popular spot for locals with lots of food options. Outdoor seating on sidewalk and each side and around the building, plus indoors. Lots of take out going on too. Serves a dynamite breakfast so there is usually a long line; be advised that you can go inside to the shorter line if you just want pastries and coffee. Prices are... More

In LA for work, we came across Aroma cafe and it was perfect! Food was delicious with dairy free, gluten free, vegan/vegetarian options as well as all the goodness of meat and melted brie! Charming service and excellent coffee too! Seating for every purpose; outdoor people watching, stylish and comfortable indoor as well as back patio suitable for brunch/lunch meetings.
