Aroma Entrance

Aroma is unique. Have you ever heard of a modern comfortable cafe that supplies fast internet and cheery service. No? I didn’t think so. I’m sitting there now in a modern retro styled chair and watching others converse in soft leather couches. Every 10 minutes a polite worker comes around to pick up all trash. Aroma doesn’t nag you to buy anything in trade for internet. They welcome one and all without hesitation. As I am not a coffee drinker I sadly cannot supply you with a review of the coffee, but the hot chocolate I can. It’s not regular hot chocolate. It’s not powder and it’s not diet ‘friendly’, but it may be the best damn hot chocolate I’ve ever had. Aroma makes their own special cocoa out of what I guess is a mix between whole chunks of softened chocolate and crushed chocolate. First they steam whole milk (yes whole milk, you can choose to make it with skim, but it’s not the same), after the milk reaches 140 F degrees they add it to a mug which contains the special cocoa. That’s it. Simple, but greatly delectable. When they hand you the mug they insist that you mix the milk and cocoa well to ensure extreme satisfaction. The creamy milk and nutella tasting cocoa is on the whole irresistible.

Not only does Aroma serve beverages, but great sandwiches and pastries. If you’re looking for a way to get out of the house this is it. Bring your computer and relax to the sound of soft conversation around you.

  1. I live in Israel and I read with the rest of the country the article they made about you today in the paper. I enjoyed reading it and agreed with you point of view about how kids are treated at restaurants! Aroma is one of the coolest places to chill out, I agree. Did you visit more restaurants here in Israel?

    • Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog! Yes I visited many restaurants including Rokach 73, and other more, affordable restaurants. I’m currently working on a piece of writing that will include my opinion of Israeli cuisine as well as many of the reviews of restaurants I visited. So stay tuned and visit my blog again within the next week or so.

  2. It’s not that I wish to copy your website, but I really like the design. Could you tell me what template are you using? Or was it custom made?

  3. Great site! Continue the good posts.
