Aroma is a newer restaurant since we were last in Cahuita. It is locally owned by a mid-30s fellow whose son is the waiter. We got the full story from the owner’s father, Walter who was sitting at the table next to ours on our...first visit. He was visiting from San Jose and wanted to speak in English so we chatted throughout the meal.
The restaurant is on the smaller size and the seating is outdoors, but well worth going … at least for breakfast which is what we did twice. The food is freshly prepared … including the bread which arrives warm and served with a shy smile by the staff. The staff is friendly, warm, attentive and happy to see you. We stuck with the north American breakfast of fresh fruit, omelette, bacon and bread … all of which were delicious … especially the fruit which was in season.
The place has a younger vibe to it both among the staff and most patrons, although at 66 and 61, we seemed to fit right in. Not only is the food great, it’s a fun experience so long as you take the time to engage the folks around you.
We enjoyed and highly recommend this restaurantMore
