Our new "go to" local place for breakfast

The power breakfast is enough food for my wife and I. Great variety and all tasted fresh. Eggs very hot, salad very cold, and bread warm and crusty. Coffee a little strong for me but better a little strong than a little weak. Looking forward to trying other items when we go back.

Consistently yummy. Addictive halloumi cheese and decadent hot chocolate. Would def recommend eats if you're in the area in a casual atmosphere

I had walked past this place in NYC and thought that it might be a good place to try. The atmosphere is good, it did give off an espresso bar vibe. Unfortunately, that was the only positive that I can come up with. I went here with a date, and it just seemed so so. I was not that hungry,... More

My husband loves the Aroma in Soho. He goes their every morning every time we are in NY. He saw on the menu they were opening at Montgomery Mall and yesterday we went for breakfast on our way home from Dulles AP. He had the oatmeal w fruit and he didn't think it was as good as what he has... More

Healthy, comforting food choices made to order. Anything from reasonably sized Mediterranean salads to comforting warm small plate pastas. Baked goods are a bit pricey.

I discovered Aroma for the first time in Israel and thought it was great and very different than Starbucks, primarily due to the high quality equipment and the real made to order food. When I heard that they were opening in the US I was excited but it was only in Miami and New York at first. Much to my... More

A friend took me to Aroma to introduce me to the chain she enjoys at home in Israel- everything we had was delicious (and kosher)! I am totally hooked on the Iced Lemonana and wish I could find somewhere near my home to get one everyday! I recommend the Shakshuka with yummy homemade bread and the warm garbanzo salad, too.

Great espresso, wretched service. Milk is pre steamed and just sitting there, not the best way to deliver. Will not do anything additional to help..... guy was shocked that I asked them to add sugar before the steamed milk, since I could do it myself. Lots of attitude from staff, and this morning one of them was eating baked goods... More

Have had amazing coffee there! Lattes great too. My kids love the hot chocolate. Try the Warm chicken salad. All the breads are baked fresh. Terrific for breakfast too!
