“Smells good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We love the Aroma Cafe and go there fairly often. The food is always good the desserts are some of the best in the city. What makes it so special is the atmosphere. We always sit outside, which is most of the seating because we can bring our dog. Very dog friendly, good food. Everything we are looking for in a restaurant.

“Neighbourhood Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Delicious, fresh, simple, casual, charming, pretty, relaxing, reasonable, friendly, etc... Tons of good adjective can apply to this cafe. At least once a week, I sit there and enjoy varieties of menu. And best part of this cafe is selction of cakes! Not only they taste soooo good, the size of each piece is HUGE which satisfies sweetholic like me. I always buy at least a couple of pieces and finish them at once! Then forcing myself on diet and exercise in next several days- typical routine for me. FYI there is also a sister cafe, "Alcove," in Los Feliz. Cafe setting, menu and taste of foods are pretty much identical, and if you want to feel more "Hollywood" type, this should be the place to go, But if you care the level of the service and simply want to enjoy good foods and relax yourself, you definitely want to choose Aroma - honestly!

“Fabulous Neighborhood Hangout. Dog Friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

You know this place rocks when it is completely crowded at 3:00pm on a Sunday. Lots and lots of seating. You order & pay at the counter and then you're given a number. A server will later find you by this number in order to deliver your food. Come here for coffee and over the top desserts or come for breakfast or lunch faire. The (very) blue velvet cupcake was only "ok." After seeing all the pics of this item on yelp, I thought I better try one. My coffee was good. I love that this place is so dog friendly. There were lots of canines there and big bowls of drinking water outside. I brought mine with me...and that was a lot of fun to have him on the outing.

“Gem in Stydio City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Nothing fancy but simple (and sometimes healthy) dishes in a great outdoor environment. Salads and breakfast items are fantastic.

“Cozy & Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I love Armoa's cozy atmosphere. It's like hanging out in a very cute & stylish patio. The food is always delicious, during this visit I ordered their soup of the day, ginger carrot -mmm!
