Visiting my daughter we stood in the long line to order a arugula salad and poached eggs. The portion was huge and ended leaving half. The coffee was a disappointment but the service was swift and friendly. Be prepared to wait and enjoy the outside seating.

This place is hilarious. I've been going here on and off for many years, the food is pretty good honest fare, reasonably priced and served by pleasant friendly staff. It doubles as a coffee shop that opens early and brews good coffee. The seating area is mostly outside under cover in a charming garden like space. All in all it's... More

We stayed near Universal Studios and found this place and did not regret it! (not one bit). Short wait time, courteous service, fast attention, clean and you can notice how clean the place is kept. My wife, kids and I will definitely come back if we are in the area. I hope you find my experience useful to decide and... More

This is our favorite in the area. Dinners are generally light. Great salads, burgers, wraps. Had a steak special tonight. A very cheery atmosphere, friendly staff. Order and pay up front, with table service inside or the surrounding court.

This is a neighborhood cafe with wonderful food and atmosphere. However, it always looks like it is packed and will take forever to be seated and eat. Don't be deceived. The line to order frequently (usually) spills over to the sidewalk outside, because the counter at which to order is right inside the front door. Seating is usually plentiful and... More

Spent hours here hanging out with friends. We had a delicious snack, pulled out some board games and played for a while, and then got a delicious dinner and dessert. The staff is outstanding, laid back, and friendly. The atmosphere is welcoming to all people and all ages. It's a great space to catch up with friends, have dinner, do... More

I always try to hit Aroma when in LA for business. Always a great place to have a business meeting and an amazing breakfast. Had the huevos rancheros and the flavors are amazing. It looked like they changed the dish just a bit since last time but still good. Coffee is very good but no refills.

Great choice of breakfasts, always popular and beautiful courtyard tables. When I'm in the area this is always a great choice for breakfast. Big portions too!
