Cafe Aroma is pretty unique for Jeddah. The thing I like about it the most is the ever changing interior and atmosphere, the food, and service is also always changing. It is located in the Al Hamra center beside the Abu shakra restaurant.
The menu contains a mix of food including a variety of pasta, pizzas, sandwiches and seafood. International Fusion would be a good way to describe it all. There are some exotic choices on the drinks list, a great selection of hot and cold coffees, and some delicious milkshakes and sundays .
On Arrival I was met by the supervisor who upon greeting us inquired as to whether we were there for coffee or dinner as the Cafe is divided into two sections and you will be seated according to your choice.
I ordered the shrimp fettuccine and some french fries, the french fries are among the best i’ve tried in Jeddah, I’ve noticed other places are trying to serve the same but aroma’s are the best and the original. For hot drinks I recommend the latte. I went for a vanilla latte with almond, and was not disappointed. If you like nuts there is another with macadamia which also tastes nice.
The menu contains a large variety of salads which also looked tempting. For dessert I tried the date cake which was very good. The service was fast, which was to be expected as there are usually a lot of people waiting at the busy cafe, and I guess it’s in their interest to have a high turnover.
On another note its also a pleasant place to have your birthday party at. I’ve had my birthday twice there. Aroma will even provide a cake if you don’t bring your own.Read more
