Go there for breakfast

They serve quite big portions of breakfast and have great coffee! Self service counter and good seating inside and outside.

If I had a choice, I'd buy this place, put a hotel above it and live happily ever after. The food, the people, the service all rock. The most incredible coffee, sandwiches, croissants, pastries, etc. Really terrific dining experience for breakfast, lunch, dinner.

When I have guests from out of town we always walk to Aroma Cafe. It's a great way to get the cool LA vibe in the Valley while walking through the neighborhood that is home to The Brady Bunch House. The food is generally delicious, servings are large and calorie laden - it never disappoints. The only reason I gave... More

I'm not sure I've ever had their savory food here. I always come for coffee and/or pastries. But their cakes are literally the best cake I can remember having. They always have a wide variety and every one I've tried has been phenomenal. They have other desserts too, and I've always wanted to try their brownies, or cookies, but the... More

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

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. The Aroma Cafe is about a 15 min walk from the Garland Hotel - a very pleasant walk through a residential neighbourhood. The restaurant is a... More

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
