Very expensive and the food doesn't taste very good. Came here for coffee and dessert and everything was extremely pricey. We ordered two desserts and to coffee and the bill came out to be over $30 then add on taxes and tips. Desserts were a big portions but didn't taste good at all. The coffee was also pretty bad. Service was nonexistent at best. Our waitress was not very nice and never came back to check on us. Probably wouldn't come back

I like this shop better than Georgetown Cupcakes around the corner. The cupcakes are bigger than Georgetown Cupcakes and the atmosphere is really fun. Texas Sheetcake is 100% my go-to.

They serve a bowl of the best Jewish penicillin’s out there. Not clear like some, it’s the color of yellow curry with carrots, zucchini, onions and celery with spices floating on top. The matzo ball is the size of a fist and firm, not crumbly. A big bowl of this soup and I feel fortified. The extensive menu is filled with European and Mediterranean cuisine. I’ve been to the Aroma Bakery Café in Encino twice. Open at 7 a.m. the café is filled with patrons sipping Turkish coffee and Café Americano while nibbling on butter and chocolate croissants. On Mondays through Fridays, they serve three breakfast specials until 11 a.m. Breakfast #1 is two eggs any style served with fresh orange juice and a coffee or tea of your choice, along with a plate of colorful vegetable salad, feta cheese, olive spread cheese and homemade jam to dab on a variety of freshly baked breads. Also on the menu is a sunset breakfast burrito with turkey sausage, Belgian waffles topped with powdered sugar, syrup, mixed berries and whipped cream. On Saturday and Sunday, they prepare Sabich or exotic breakfast feast. A platter arrives with warm pita bread, hard-boiled eggs, eggplant with hummus, vegetables, red onions and pickles. Another brunch dish is a traditional Yemenite Jewish dish, the Jachnun, prepared with rolled dough that is baked overnight in very low heat. It’s served with a hard-boiled egg, vegetables, tomato puree and tahini sauce. Lunch offers a variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads. They serve six lunch specials from noon to 4 p.m. All come with a cup of soup or house salad. We ordered the beet salad with baked magenta beets, sweet orange sections, red onions, pecans and strings of feta cheese on top of mixed greens. It’s tossed with an citrus orange vinaigrette and served with pita bread. Another salad, the Batata Extravaganza is topped with feta cheese and lightly fried sweet potato fries. Pine nuts, walnuts, cherry tomatoes, sunflower seeds and onions blanket the mixed lettuce. The Greek plate with stuffed grape leaves, tabouleh salad, deep purple kalamata olives, bright white feta cheese cubes, labane (a Middle Eastern soft yogurt cheese with olive oil and zaatar spices) and red onions. It’s served with delightfully crunchy Jerusalem bagel toast. Sandwiches are presented on toasted ciabatta, baguette, special house bread or Jerusalem bagel toast. I selected the Jerusalem bagel toast filled with tuna, cheese, tomatoes and a garlic dressing. The sesame-coated bagel is served panini style. Fish is one of the main proteins for lunch and dinner. At Aroma Bakery Café they prepare the fish dishes such as ahi tuna-kabab style with onion rice, mini potatoes, chopped salad and tahini sauce or a salmon filled phyllo dough served with mashed potatoes and salad. Chicken dishes include orange chicken, chicken marsala, honey mustard chicken, schnitzel and chicken livers. They also serve around 20 different varieties of pizzas, pastas and specialty dishes. Who knew that a café that serves one of the tastiest matzo ball soups in town also creates wonderful chocolate, sweet halvah and white chocolate soufflés? They take about fifteen minutes to prepare and are served with whipped cream.

i miss the old 'aroma'! after a hiatus from this restaurant i returned for lunch last week. service was mediocre; the waiter was nice and well intended but didn't seem to have been trained for his job. the food was slow to be served, not up to the standards i'd come to love, and my lunch was ridiculously expensive for what was presented (the price was not on the menu and i failed to ask when i ordered - my fault). i will not return.

Included the tip in the charge and said nothing about it. I added a 20% tip on top of it, and was wondering why the total seemed a bit high. Checked it when I got home and told them about it, but they said that they can't do anything about it. They can keep their 20%, but lost me as a customer.

What an amazing place. I recently started a new job in the Studio City Area and I like to get birthday cupcakes for the staff on their birthdays. The staff is always so happy when they open up their box and see the amazing dessert that they get from AROMA. Thanks for making my job easier..
