I vow to return went to 42nd St. branch just East of Third Av.

I tried the shakshuka which I may not get again. But the power breakfast looked great and the Bureck sp? a sesame roll with savory ingredients looked great. This is near the UN and Grand Central and, despite that, is open Saturdays and Sundays shich is heavenly and rare in this part of town... read more

I was looking for a no-nonsense breakfast before I headed out of town and found it here. I had the breakfast on the go. Two generous slices of multigrain brain and two varieties of jam,

This chain is a big one in Israel and one of my favorite places to get coffee and good breakfast when I'm there. I had almost forgotten they have a few Aromas in NYC so I went and enjoyed a delicious coffee and delicious croissant. Afterwards I enjoyed a nice morning of shopping in Soho, which is right around the... More

Today, a man, apparently employed by Aroma Espresso bar, followed me into the women's restroom. I was obviously terrified and will never go back there.

I love the salad, soup and the coffee (both hot and cold) but they have a mess when it comes to the way they serve and manage orders. As much as I love the salad and soup there its not worth standing and waiting for 30 minutes during my lunch hour. Good food... "meh" customer service. If you have the... More

I love the creamy chai latte and the flaky, gooey chocolate croissant at Aroma! The atmosphere is great!

For those that don't know this chain isn't nationwide. So when we're visiting a place that has one we always visit. This location didn't fail to live up to our expectations. The food tasted fresh, the coffee was amazing. If you're in the area do not hesitate checking this one out.

I love Aroma. While it may be overpriced, the food is always good and the iced Aroma reminds me of Israel. The salads are great, but this time I decided to try the French toast. It was so good! Huge portion, very filling.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
