Nothing from the outside...real pros inside

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... read 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 !

...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.

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.
