Aruma Jelly Aruma Pasta Aruma Coffee Aruma clubhouse Blueberry cheese cake And the Bannoffee pie Don't forget that list. Those are undeniably delicious. The white walls makes it very condusive for business meetings and meet ups. They now have a conference room for meeting with bigger groups.

The place is very good. Their menu was great too. Excellent choices of foods. But there's one thing i'm disapppointed. Why would they clean off or get rid of our used plates or glasses when we haven't leave yet? I plan on coming back because I love their desserts but because of that atittude, I decided not to come back.

Aruma offers Delectable sweets partnered with coffee. Good to hang out on a lazy afternoon with friends or with family. Located at the heart of the city.

I have been to this place for countless times and their services are good...however..as far as I can remember, the place is always loud. People chat in full volume and have no respect for other people around. Wifi is slow and sometimes the staff forgets proper customer service. They tend to just put food or coffee and leave right away.... More

Aruma draws coffee lovers-its coffee variety delights connoisseurs and art enthusiasts as well. The photo galleries help art novice train their eyes on what is an excellent piece or what is trash. I heard it is one watering hole for Iligan's prominent photographers/artists. So, while sipping and enjoying a delightful cup you can also be awed by the conversations of... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening which would be a quiet day of the week fir such a cafe. Inside its entrance the floor covering was already worn. The cheeseburger did nit taste good but the roast chicken was much nicer, albeit served with half a spoonful of vegetables. The juices seemed powdered. We might have been better to... More

The Aroma is a hidden gem in iligan, a quiet cafe that you would expect to see in any western city. The decor is very nice, the place is very clean and the coffe and food is great. It is hidden in a quieter part of downtown Iligan, which is a good thing. If you are looking for a great... More
