I stopped here several times for lunch. The food was good. The prices were competitive. There is street parking.

My husband and I had time to kill prior to an event in Charles City, so we stopped in at Aromas for coffee, based on TripAdvisors glowing reviews. This place lives up to the hype. The owners, Bryan and Cara, warmly greeted us, asked where we were from, and walked us through their extensive coffee selection, roasted on-site. We sampled... More

Visited this town for the first time in several years, and glad to see Aroma's is still there and apparently thriving. The new space is very nice. Love the variety of coffees they roast.

Aroma's is a coffee shop in a very large bright space on Charles City's Main Street. It offers the usual coffee drinks and a few pastries in a comfortable environment. A good stop.

i love both the inside and outside of this old building. They have many different coffees and drinks to choose from. Personally, I love the hot chocolate. This is so much nicer than going to your run of the mill Starbucks. I like to meet my friends here for a visit where we sit at a window table and watch... More

I went in with a friend to try something new. The barista helped us both decide what kind of drink would be best for us. It all depends on whether you want something sweet, strong, hot, cold, decaf, etc. They were very friendly. Scones are delicious. The only downside is that they don't accept credit or debit cards.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love coffee houses (I'll just take my tea, thank you very much...). I love the environment of Aroma's - great place to work or have conversations. Everyone is incredibly friendly. Other coffee shops should really take notes from Aroma's.

I definitely am NOT a Starbucks fan and am quite picky about my coffees. I enjoy seeking out those special little places that have the best quality and so far Aromas has my vote as the best coffee house in Iowa. I don't know what the difference is, but I've tried a variety of coffees and they are just always... More

This is a fairly new, small business coffee shop on Main St. in Charles City. The phone number is 641-228-4773. It has no website (that I could find) but I'm sure the owners would be very willing to chat.
