Great lunch in Sherman Oaks

We probably had our best lunch in LA at Aroma Cafe. It's a great cafe in a lovely location. Plenty of outdoor and indoor seating. There was a bit of a queue but the line moves quickly and you won't be waiting long for your food. They have a big menu and the portion sizes are generous. Great... read more

Aroma has hands down the best coffee! The cakes are amazing and the French fries are delicious! A fun place to relax and chat with a loved one or friend.

I love this place. I have gone back three times this month and keep looking for more reasons to dive 20 minutes over to Studio City. I love breakfast here. I have had the Eggs Benedict, French Toast and Huevos Rancheros and love them all. The garden area is just a lovely place to have a great Latte and wonderful... More

We have breakfast every time I visit my daughter, now two daughters that live right down the street from Aroma. Fun relaxed atmosphere. You stand in line, some days the line is longer than other days, it all depends what day it is and what time of day! Give them your order, and go find a table either inside or... More

This restaurant needs a different sign. From the outside, it looks like a strip-mall cafe where you'd expect to get gluey pizza and tasteless lasagna. Get past that image and open the door. Inside are white tablecloths and an exceedingly professional operation. Our waiter told us what was special with enthusiasm (I expected him to drool). We ordered three different... More

This restaurant has a small store-front but it is really pretty big. We went here on Sunday for a lunch and it was a great treat. You order your food and then look for a place to sit so the line will go out the door but it moves pretty quick. The Avocado dip was great and so were the... More

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

Another fantastic place in the valley ! You order the food the counter and pay and go and choose your table in the amazing garden . Sunday late morning was pretty busy but the line was quite quick . Great cappuccino and for once no a scolding one ! Vive it a try !
