  • Anya KolbaskoI liked their breakfast choices, coffee was pretty good and outdoor seating area on the second floor is really cute and makes this place so distinctive.

  • Stephanie DeDeckerGet the nitro cold brew. It won't disappoint

    55555 by Stephanie DeDecker

  • Valerie DCoffee is good and there's ample seats and tables, but it's a little pricey and the service is very slow and incompetent.

    33333 by Valerie D

  • GothamistThe best thing here is the rooftop patio, but if it’s raining or you hate sunshine, fast and reliable wifi and power outlets await you downstairs.

    55555 by Gothamist

  • Rowan JThe blended mint tea lemonade is amazing! I'm vegan, and I went in looking for coffee, but this drink did. It disappoint.

    55555 by Rowan J

  • Rowan JThe upstairs couch seating is cozy and on a nice day there's even a rooftop patio!

    55555 by Rowan J

  • Paul RichterCoffee is good

    55555 by Paul Richter

  • Paul RichterCoffee, salads

    55555 by Paul Richter

  • Jason H.Sandwich was ok - avoid the ice blended drinks. Taste overly sweet and not like real espresso

    33333 by Jason H.

  • Gaston MThe alfajores here are amazing!

    55555 by Gaston M

  • James B.Try the iced cappuccino with coconut milk

    55555 by James B.

    55555 by Nettie M

  • Charles G.Nice upstairs outdoor patio. Perfect during nice weather.

    55555 by Charles G.

  • Túlio TCafé delicia. Ótimo pro nível dos americanos, Q são sempre meio aguados.

    55555 by Túlio T

  • NicoleIce Limonana (frozen lemonade with mint) is perfect for hot summer days. They also got rid of the peanuts in the warm chicken salad for all the nut allergies out there.

    55555 by Nicole

  • Paige C.Nothing like an iced Aroma! Go upstairs and sit outside in their adorable garden!

    55555 by Paige C.

  • Scott BCheck out the rooftop patio on the second floor.

    55555 by Scott B

    55555 by bernie R

  • Omer Z.What you call an "ice cafe" in Israel is an "ice Aroma" here.

    55555 by Omer Z.

  • Omer Z.This place is enormous but so popular it's still hard to find somewhere to sit.

    55555 by Omer Z.

    55555 by Danica Y.

  • Trae F.Very unassuming from the outside. Decent chai latte.

    55555 by Trae F.

  • Bill O'LearyThere is more space and is less crowded than other coffee places on the UWS. Maybe because of the wifi limitations, but who can blame them for that?

    55555 by Bill O'Leary

  • Chirag P.Spacious for UWS and no wifi password. Lots of veg sandwiches, salads, etc. Big tables

    55555 by Chirag P.

  • Tohm S.Love the salads and sandwiches, especially the warm garbanzo bean salad! Pricy but large portions and high quality! Check out the upstairs patio!

    55555 by Tohm S.

  • MyCheck USThis Aroma location has expanded their dessert menu, and we are not complaining.

    55555 by MyCheck US

  • NicoleThe chocolate croissants have creamy Nutella-like texture inside, sans nuts. I usually get a cappuccino/croissant combo, a BLT, or a salad (sweet potato/goat cheese).

    55555 by Nicole

  • Mansour A.Just a fine coffee, can not be listed in my favs. The staff are nice.

    55555 by Mansour A.

  • Rose Tabladakale salad w/ portobello mushrooms, cherry tomatoes & Shave Parmesan Cheese w/ lemon dressing, a side of skim latte & 1/2 grilled chicken sandwich w/ roasted peppers, mozzarella & arugula. So good :)

    55555 by Rose Tablada

  • Menzer P.They have free wifi and open until 11 pm. Good to study but not for coffee. Staff is not friendly either and the service is very slow. Starbucks espresso is better!

    55555 by Menzer P.

    55555 by Mark Lombardi

    55555 by Craig

  • Eugene K.I love the food but the service is awful! The counter cannot multitask and with one guy in the kitchen it takes forever for food to come out. A little bit of employee training could go a long way.

    33333 by Eugene K.

  • Rene H.Keep it elegant and simple: you can't o wrong with the fresh mint tea.

    55555 by Rene H.

  • Concetta M.Mediocre coffee. Came for the wifi it barely worked... Cheese Danish tasted like canned fruit and sugar and I was competing with 3 flies to eat it. Really pricy for the low quality food.

    55555 by Juho N.

    22222 by Mitch G.
