vegan-friendly cafe

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

Aroma Espresso Bar is a super-modern cafe featuring two vegan sandwiches (avocado and Mediterranean) and a number of vegan salads (quinoa, mixed greens, Mediterranean, among others). Sandwiches are about $8 or $5.50 for half a sandwich and the salads are around $6-11, depending on which one you get and what size it is (not all salads come in every size). As an espresso bar, they have tons of drinks (both coffee and non-coffee).

Aroma Espresso Bar used to sell vegan bakery from Sweet Cheeks bakery but discontinued it because it wasn't selling well, perhaps because it wasn't well advertised.

There is also free wifi available.

I gotta say that I was pretty disappointed with this place. I stopped in for a quick vegan sandwich and cupcake, only to find out that they no longer have vegan baked goods.

I ordered the avocado sandwich (avocado, red onions, jalapenos, tomato, lettuce, sprouts) on whole grain bread because I LOVE avocado. I was quite disappointed to get my sandwich and not see the avocado slices I was expecting, but rather find a guacamole-like paste that obviously contained preservatives and was likely frozen. I'm guessing it's the same crap guacamole made in Mexico, frozen, then shipped to American Taco Bells. They might be using the same guacamole dip Trader Joe's uses, but that's still not very good, especially considering it was supposed to be an avocado sandwich, not a guacamole dip sandwich.

I also was disappointed to see that I only got two jalapeno slices on my sandwich and they were the canned variety so they weren't very spicy. I will say, however, the multi-grain bread was very good and the employees were friendly.
