Across the street from my home for about a year this place called #20 AROMA Espresso Bar has been open.
I’ve never been. The whole time I figured it was simply espresso. That was kind of naive, but either way I was very curious to go and be a cliché, grab my laptop, and have a blog lunch aka blunch. Walking in I found a full menu from breakfast croissants to an assortment of wine. Sold! Of course they sold food, but I was indeed surprised. I simply ordered a mint lemonade first being overwhelmed by the wide array of options. After flipping about the menu a few times while writing, I went for the #21 Halumi sandwich. Halumi is a cheese I’ve never heard of from a place I’ve never been. It’s apparently a native of Cyprus, Greece. Honestly, you don’t have to convince me too much when it comes to cheese, so I was in.
It was absolutely delicious.
Also AROMA had an awesome play-list. Here are some of the tunes that played in the background I could recognize:
#22. Amy Winehouse – Cupid
#23. Bebel Gilberto – Tanto Tempo
#24. Katie Melua – If You Were a Sailboat
#25. Feist – Gatekeeper
#26. Paulino Moska – Falsa Baiana
I will definitely be going back to fulfill my coffeehouse dreams.
