Espresso Rating: 6/10
At 9:45 on a Friday morning L'Aroma was packed, with a five minute line to order and a twelve minute wait to receive a double espresso. I was able to snatch up one of the sixteen small tables, but I only used it to sit and anxiously wait for my coffee, then guzzle it down in sixty seconds before running out the door to get to my dentist appointment.
|Double espresso - $2.25 - A somewhat bitter and nondescript espresso|
White chocolate and pistachio scone - It would've been a lot better fresh or heated up. It was kind of sweet, the outer layer was a bit dry and hard, and it was dense and soft inside, but with very little flavor.
|Maybe I should've gotten the Nutella Loaf.|
At least when it finally gets warm outside in Boston you can sit in one of the seats on their patio, supposing you're willing to assault someone for a table.
L'Aroma Cafe is just another of Newbury Street's stylish monuments to vapid consumption.
