Nice place to meet friends

Driving through Studio City we met a friend here for lunch and really enjoyed ourselves. The cafe has seating both inside and out and everyone seemed to be enjoying the day. The food choices were extensive and our choices were well prepared.

Aroma cafe served a very good breakfast. I really loved potato pencake and iced coffee here. The ancient house & atmosphere was also great, friendly staff!

This was the perfect place to catch up with an old friend, when I was recently home in the San Fernando Valley. I can't wait to go back. A plate of garlicy stir fried vegetables and a huge helping of hummus were just the ticket. I only wish I could have had a glass of wine too! Lovely atmosphere, all... More

They need serious cashier organization. It is a mess. Still good foods, friendly staff, but the atmosphere is getting so commercial. No neighborhood charm felt anymore.

Went about 4 months ago with a friend and had brunch everything was superb. Not overpriced, not too flashy. Just good food and good service. Great spot.

Charming old house and patio turned into a cafe. Walk up to the counter to order, find a table and they bring the food to you. Food was excellent and my friend and I shared a heavenly dessert. Parking can be challenging and the line and wait can be long which is a testament to it's popularity.

I love this place. I've eaten many different dishes here, and I've been delighted with each one. The portions are large, so I recommend sharing so that you can save room for dessert. If you're not hungry, you can drink tea or coffee while reading or writing and simply enjoy the peaceful ambiance under the trees outside.

Have been here a few times over the past 2 years and asolutely love coming for breakfast or lunch. Had the French toast on this trip and it was fabulous. Love the setting and the food. My wife is a big fan so this is a true treat for her as well when she makes this trip with me.

A 'Hollywood' friend chose this place to meet me and 2 of my San Diego friends. We all LOVED IT! Not only was it the best coffee in the US, but the place was really comfortable- no one made us feel like we'd outstayed our welcome- even though we were there for 2 hours! Plus we met some really nice... More
