Great coffee, very good sandwiches. Good for lunch or after show coffee.

Aroma's has become a staple in town center. I believe they started in Williamsburg's merchant square. They have always offered a variety of good coffee and Desserts. Their sandwiches and soups are tasty and well prepared and presented.

This place will always have a special place in my heart...my wife and I met here. Nice place to get good coffee and a light meal. They will have live music on occasion. The food is good, too. Parking isn't bad usually, either.

Quiet place to grab a cup-o-joe. I've only been here for afternoon pick-me-ups, and not the morning rush hour, so it might be more crowded/louder at other times. Seems like a good place to do some work or read quietly. When the weather is nice, they have tables outside which I enjoy. They do offer snacks and other food but... More

It's a classic coffee shop with a few things to eat. I didnt get the coffee, just food. It's at a great location in Oyster Point so we ate outside and enjoyed the sun... More

We were here for a wedding at a neighboring hotel and this little gem had great coffee, a warm and inviting atmosphere and suprisingly good food.

If your goal is to get away from Starbucks and experience a non-chain coffee shop in Newport News, this is the place. Serves a solid breakfast as well. Enjoy!

Hi, Sorry that the kitchen was closed. Because of the slow business at dinner time we had to start closing the kitchen earlier. I will have to talk to the staff there because they still have other items that could have been purchased for snacking on. We are hoping that business in the evenings will pick up so we can... More

We headed to Aromas to pick up some fresh coffee and breakfast and were extremely disappointed. The girl working the register treated me with disdain because I had brought my toddler in with me (apparently this coffee house doesn't cater to anyone who has children?) I ordered the granola and fruit and instead she gave a parfait that was in... More

When on the road, we love to find cafes and restaurants with character, great food, and great people. Aromas in Newport News is certainly a lovely place for great food, fresh ingredients, good prices, and a coffee shop/cafe environment.
