Best Cuban!

They make the best Cuban sandwich around! Friendly people and perfect food! All the dishes I have tried are wonderful! The red beans and rice are sooo good! You will definitely enjoy your visit!

My husband and I ate at the Aroma Cafe after reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor. The term I would use to describe the restaurant is "hole in the wall." I'm not sure what the building was prior to becoming a restaurant, but it was definitely not intended to be a restaurant when it was built. Upon entering the restaurant,... More

The Cuban sandwich is very good, but what really sends this little restaurant over the top is/are the authentic (kind of) red beans and black beans. They are flavorful and creamy, served with just the right amount of rice for textural contrast. I add the hot sauce at the table, for just a touch more zing, but every dish I've... More

Went here with my parents. The workers were a mother and son and they were both really sweet. My family loves to dine tapas style and their selection of smaller plates makes this really easy and affordable. Highly recommend checking them out.

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
