I did not expect to find good Cuban sandwiches in East Tennessee, but theirs is as good as any that I enjoyed in my years in Tampa while eating at native Cuban places in Ybor City. The papa rellena is also top notch. Next time, the empanadas....

The chicken and cream cheese and guava empanada is AMAZING... black beans and rices with the cuban sandwich and a drink is such a good deal and so delicious. This place is a gem and the guy who rang us up was so friendly and helpful!

The food is authentic and wonderful!!! The Cuban sandwich is the best I have ever had. We go as often as possible. Do yourself a favor and go here and eat because you won't be disappointed. The people here are friendly and always a pleasure. Great prices!

After being bitterly disappointed that the Jamaican place we wanted to try was out of virtually everything we wanted to try at 4:30 in the afternoon, I remembered passing by this little cafe that was attached to an ice cream shop. It was only maybe a half mile of so away, so we decided to give it a try. We... More

I'm no expert regarding the Cuban sandwich, but my taste buds tell me Aroma Cafe is hitting the mark! Get the Cuban and an additional cup of the green sauce (trust me, you'll want more than one) and have at it. Want dessert? You can now get ice cream just next door (the buildings have an interior connection) for a... More

Nice to find such a good Cuban place in Maryville. Delicious food. Fast service. Cuban sandwiches are great. We also had the sample platter with empanadas, muratos, plantains, and croquettes. Everything was good.
