    Nothing like an iced Aroma! Go upstairs and sit outside in their adorable garden!

    A chill place to sit and study. Wifi is fast and reliable. Don't forget to pick up a punch card!

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

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

    Free wifi and many outlets upstairs, perfect for a long study sesh. Eggplant goat cheese sandwich is a win.

    Very unassuming from the outside. Decent chai latte.

    There 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?

    Bill O'Leary · October 28, 2014
  • Chirag P.

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

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

    This Aroma location has expanded their dessert menu, and we are not complaining.

    The 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).

    kale 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 :)

    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!

    Good place to get a coffee and work.

    a reliable chain for good coffee and inexpensive breakfast/lunch

  • ERIN Z.

    Attitude way outta line at the order counter...they will blame you if they get your order wrong. Barista and baristo, however, were happy to fix it even though they were busy. Much appreciated.

    Stop at one cup or you may never sleep again! :)

    Come here if you want to wait 15 mins for your coffee. Staff needs some serious training!

    I was gonna get coffee and then I saw they had wine

    Amazing almond croissants!

    Craig Smith · November 15, 2013
  • 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.

    Eugene Kopman · November 8, 2013
  • Rene H.

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

  • Chetta

    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.

    I loved it. The chai latte is made of pure awesome. There is upbeat music but it's not loud so you can talk normally.

    Amazing sandwiches - great for breakfast!

    Apparently phone orders are more important than the people standing right there waiting for service.

    Super friendly. I came at a very busy time. Very efficient and always comunicate to the customers to make them feel special.

    Everyone is so nice here! Totally feels like a chill home away from home. :) now to mention the food and coffee is delicious! Try an orange carrot juice, it's the best pick me up...
