I've lived here for 15 years and just discovered this cute little Restaurant

The food is GREAT! Best to call ahead though, so you don't have to wait. Apparently, a lot of people DO know how great the food is. Very friendly service.

My wife and I visited here for a rare afternoon out without kids. Aroma Café never disappoints. Javier and Alecia are always so warm and welcoming. The atmosphere is great and the food is good beyond belief. Unless you're very hungry or usually eat large portions a mini Cuban sandwich combo is a great size meal.

I love this restaurant. I have eaten here many times and can honestly say I have never had a bad meal. Try the Jupina to drink.

I had been told for a long time by friends just how wonderful the Aroma Cafe was but it is on the other side of town from me and we just never made it in. Finally stopped by and I'm sure glad we did! The food and service is a joy! Best Cuban sandwich I've ever had! The sides are... More

I ordered the small sandwich combo (sandwich (with dipping sauce and bowl of black beans, topped with a little dollop of cilantro)....as usual, delicious! The restaurant isn't really anything to look at, but the food, is great! I sat outside to enjoy the nice weather (and avoid the smell that sometimes lingers in your clothes when you sit on the...

I this place. I'm so glad I looked past it's "hole in the wall" appearance. Try the beans and sandwich with a bottle of Mexican Coke. Then, come back here and thank me. ;)

I am half cuban, born and raised in miami, then lived 10 years in Nashville. Still, this is hands down the best cuban food I have ever had. The meat is perfectly seasoned and the mojo sauce is to die for. Apparently, its homemade. Much better than the bottled mojo my parents always used. Sorry dad, you dont win this... More

Good Cuban food. Cuban sandwich made a bit differently than in South Florida. The pork at the Aroma Cafe is chopped instead of sliced. Did not distract from the Cuban sandwich experience. I have been several times and the food is made to order and comes to the table quickly. Nice to have a decent ethnic restaurant in Maryville.
