“healthy but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We tried Aroma's salads and sandwiches, and found the food decent, but not outstanding. Both were rather bland - and that's from people who generally prefer food that is not spiced or strong tasting. The salad was mostly chopped up tomatoes and cucumbers that lacked any flavour, with equally tasteless quinoa. The mint was the only flavour that stood out. Their bread was tasty, the service was efficient, and the food moderately priced. I would try it again for convenience, but would not go out of my way to return.

“Too expensive for mediocre quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I went to 2300 Yonge location in Toronto today and was hugely disappointed. I ordered a medium coffee and an almond crossoint. Firstly, no one asked me if I wanted my crossoint heated and did so without asking. So I got a somewhat burnt warmed up crossoint with a lukewarm coffee from a thermos that was almost empty for a total of $6.65. Too expensive to begin with for such mediocre quality. Won't bother again.

“Excellent Capucinos and light menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Coffee that is made with real knowledge, no sugar needed! Salads and breads are made on the premise- Very Fresh..and delicious... if you feel like having a little sweet with your coffee... they are all excellent.. and hot!, Definitely puts to shame the "big" Coffee chains.

“Best Cafe Bar in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Somehow I can't find the location for Shops at Don Mills - I love going to this place, all the time and specially in summer! This time I tried their affogato - super good and I really liked that they have small serving!

I always love their coffee and of course the chocolate comes with it makes the experience awesome :)

About cafe ambiance - it has more of a cafeteria feel to the place.. i love the red color theme and they have a patio out side for this location. Super good experience overall!

“Dark washrooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great coffee and atmosphere. Dark, dirty washrooms. Only one toilet stall lighted and the other two too dark to use comfortably, same complaints from other customers. Clean up the joint.
