Alright let's face it.. Coffee is not that great in the US. Actually, it's not very good to be honest. Well, L'Aroma Cafe gives me hope. I had a latte (perhaps someday they might even have a flat white?) and it was not bad.. not...More

Had a really nice, simple breakfast here - iced coffee and a tasty bran muffin. Took advantage of their patio area out front to enjoy the sun.

This is a very popular place. There's some window seating, but mostly small tables placed around the perimeter. I think it's busy because it's one of the first cafes you'll come to when walking down Newbury St from Arlington. The pastries are okay, the coffees...More
