Outdoor Anniversary Brunch at Aroma
This cute cafe gave us exactly what we were looking for; a quiet Anniversary brunch (outdoors) on a Saturday!
The staff did happen to be quite rushed & should have kept their pithy arguments more private, but otherwise Aroma's outdoor ambiance is an enjoyable piece of the La Jolla neighborhood.
~ Omelets ~ hardy, well-portioned and require a bit of salsa for flavor
~ Fruit crêpes ~ soooo sinful & delicious! These babies are beautifully stuffed and have decadent cream for dipping
~ Mexican hot chocolate ~ was unfortunately much too weak.... needed more chocolate, cinnamon and spice
We'd recommend this for: brunch, outdoor seating, uncrowded weekends, & couples ... but would caution *foodies* due to minimal/semi-bland flavors.

I've been to Aroma Bakery several times. I love the variety of the menu. One can order something small and simple, or filling and satisfying. I had this time the mozzarella caprese panini, definitely one of the best I have ever had.
On the menu, I also love the vegetarian quiche, the salty crepes, and for sweets, love the raspberry pie!

Patio Dining In La Jolla
My longtime good and fun friend met me at Aroma for lunch on a Monday afternoon. I arrived a bit early, and my friend , a bit late, so I ordered a delicious Chardonnay and Bruschetta to pass the time, and the hostess and server were very helpful and attentive. We sat on the patio and got to experience people watching in La Jolla on a beautiful day. The menu has many items to choose from, and we both loved our lunches.
I would recommend this restaurant. It ranks high in all aspects, and is close enough to walk to all the shopping, but a little out of the congestion of the center of town. So, it is relaxing. There are numerous 2 hour parking places on Fay Street (it is on the corner of Prospect and Fay), and also a parking garage.

Great food and lovely service! The owner came by and checked up on us, and it seems like he's always around. The ambiance is alright. It is a bakery and a cafe, but there is no divide. The service was good and the food was delicious. There was, however, a noisy child directly behind my table.

Excellent choice for Mediterranean food and American Dessert fare.
