Stumbled upon this breakfast/lunch spot on the way back from the Metro station to my hotel. Had the turkey club with cheese, cranberry relish, banana peppers, and a tasty sauce on sourdough. It was excellent and decently priced.

I asked for a sandwich and had requested more information on dressing since I have allergic reaction to some ingredients. The owner got angry and wouldn’t help no matter what solution I suggested. Unpleasant experience.

We went to the Aroma Cafe for a late breakfast. The owners are friendly and work to please their customers. It's not fancy food but it was fine for a quick breakfast, reasonably priced and produced quickly.

My wife and I used the cafe for breakfast when we were visiting DC recently. Friendly staff, good food, reasonable prices. What's not to like?

Cafe Aroma has been a 22-year member of its neighborhood. The cafe offers basic sandwiches, coffee, snacks, and drinks. Seating is available, but limited. The food is prepared quickly. The owner is quite friendly.

Small expensive coffee place, it had very limited snack options an service was poor. It is well located, but you might just miss it as there are not big signs. it only serves inside. No space for outdoor sitting.

You can get a great breakfast and variety of coffee here quickly. Take it to go or sit at one of the small tables in the cafe. The owners are friendly and accommodating.
