Aroma Coffee & Tea: A Stylish Cafe That Feels Like Home

October 22, 2014 4:04 pm

Aroma Coffee & Tea is located in renovated house in Studio City, complete with a tranquil backyard that makes the perfect spot to relax with a steaming cup of tea or java. Although the cafe began as a simple coffee shop, it’s since expanded into a full service restaurant that uses fresh ingredients in all of its dishes.

Eggs Benedict and vegan veggie platters make nutritious breakfasts, while super-food salads, eats from the create-your-own taco bar, and specialty sandwiches are available for lunch and dinner. Of course, Aroma Coffee & Tea still serves the delicious pastries delivered from bakeries all over Los Angeles, and its fresh espresso and coffee beans arrive each week from the independent Micro Coffee Roaster. Have a meal or a simple beverage in the cafe’s elegantly decorated dining room or take it outside and enjoy under the shade of Aroma’s bright red patio coverings.
