Had lunch with friends on October 14th, 2021. The restaurant was busy so we placed our orders and waited to pick up when our order was called. Seating was a challenge because they were so busy. However our salads were fresh, well made and delicious....Just be aware it’s a busy place so if in a hurry may not be the best place to go for lunch.More

We were in Williamsburg on Parent's weekend for William&Mary so everything took a long time, but man, were these lines LONG. the food, which was amazing, came out decently fast, but the coffee/drink bar took almost 30 mins. It was great and I enjoyed everything...here but I would recommend going on non-peak times.More

Over twenty-five minutes after placing our order, having to stand in an unmanaged mob of people, we finally got what amounted to very, very mediocre “specialty” (think barely better than The Big S) coffee. Not the first time- for some reason my son likes this...place (as a student atW&M I’m guessing the free WiFi) - but it will be the last for me.More

My wife and I just happened to find this place looking for a place to eat lunch during our visits to Colonial Williamsburg. It does not take reservations, but you go to the counter and make an order then look for a table inside or...outside waiting to call the number on your ticket. It was just a short wait until our food was ready and the salads and club sandwich tasted great. We also sampled the ice cream desserts and very yummy!! If in a hurry, recommend you give this place a shot!!More

The coffee was luke-warm. Twice. The crepes were cold! The oatmeal was decent. However, it was served in a plastic tub with a plastic lid. The crepes were served in large polystyrene clam shell containers. As we were eating in-house, I had thought that the...meals could be served in reusable dishes. I was surprised at this level of plastic wastage. Please do better!More

Finding good coffee and a quick bite at a reasonable price in downtown Colonial Williamsburg is a tough task. Everything is supremely overpriced and overly fancy. Luckily Aromas exists and gives you what you need at a reasonable price. The coffee and flavorings were delicious...from snickers to almond joy. Pastries were fresh and salads were delicious. They also have a full lunch and dinner menu along with daily specials. I highly recommend the pulled chicken sandwich it was amazing. Very happy to have stopped in here twice during our visit and recommend it to anyone with kids who needs a quick bite in between historical building visits.More

Shop was crowed so I kept that in mind when I got my Cafe Mocha after waiting for 25 minutes. Went back for another 1 week later. Three people ahead of me, still took 20 minutes. Absolutely no sense of urgency seen from the staff.

(Pre-Covid Review) This is a great place to pop in for some coffee or a quick bite. They have lots of treats to snack on, and their smoothies are amazing. The line was not long at all and the staff was very nice. Since this...place is near the college, it's also a great place to hang out with friends! A good place to visit!More

Whether you pop in for amazing coffee and scones in the morning, delicious sandwiches at lunch, incredible meals for dinner, or a cold refreshing drink or a yummy pastry anytime during the day, you will be glad you stopped. This shop is in the historic...section and is the cutest little shop. They don’t have a ton of seating indoors or out but they do have delicious food, the best coffee in Williamsburg, wonderful and enticing baked good, and so much more.More

Aromas near Merchants' Square - We got coffee drinks here every day during our 3 day visit. Loved the coffee smoothie (Mocha Decaf) and multiple other cold/iced coffee drinks. The food looked good but we didn't try it. Limited seating inside. Can get real crowded...at times but the staff work fast.More
