Aroma Bakery and Cafe-The Hotspot of Encino By Pete Allman

On any given night except Friday, when Aroma Bakery and Cafe is closed -there’s a line of people waiting to dine on their outside patio, or inside where Aroma’s bakery can entice their taste buds.

This eatery, located at 18947 Ventura Boulevard- is the hot spot were a diverse group of people gather for lunch or dinner and have wonderful conversations. Some of the entries I’ve enjoyed are the Tostada Salads and Smoked Salmon. The Tuna and Bass skewers are also very popular.

Like any good eatery, one must dine in a good atmosphere, have friendly service and expedite the orders. It appears that everyone from the servers, who just so happen to be attractive ladies- to the salad chefs and cooks- add a little love with their expertise. Aroma also serves breakfast for the early birds. Such items as Omelet Wraps, the no. 1 breakfast which includes: two eggs any style, vegetable salad, feta cheese, olive spread cheese, served with a basket of fresh baked bread, homemade jams, fresh orange juice, coffee or tea, all for $11.95.

Ah, but for those of you who have a sweet tooth, you must try their hot chocolate cake or any of Aroma’s 50 deserts. What’ not to like about any of this?

So, if you want your event catered or want to have your cuisine delivered, simply call 818-757-0477. In Hollywood Aroma Bakery and Cafe is located at 7373 Sunset Boulevard. Their phone number is 323-850-8120.C.S.N., on a scale of 1-10 rates Aroma a 9.

See you there!
