Great Breakfast Place

My husband and I were staying at The Garland Hotel and found the Aroma Cafe on trip advisor. We decided to try it based on the positive reviews and are very glad we did.

This was once a quiet place for coffee but now it is a super trendy place for good food and long lines.

We arrived at Aroma around 11:30 and only had to wait a few minutes. A staff member came to line and asked if we wanted to be seated at a table. He was our waiter and was outstanding. Very helpful with the menu, answered all our questions and was very patient! We all had breakfast (big selection) and each meal... More

This place is so popular, you might have to wait in line to order your food, but it will be worth it. The charm of the spot, where you will find many from the industry dining, is one of my very favorites. You may have your food and beverage delivered to you in the garden area, in the library by...

We went for breakfast and were not disappointed. The Salmon Stack (smoked salmon benedict over a potato pancake) was divine. Others had variations of benedicts as well and raved about their meals. Cute place with indoor and outdoor seating in an old house that has been converted. The service was good, food came out quickly and was terrific. Highly recommended!

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 value for... 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
