They could definitely stand to improve their system, as they can't efficiently handle the crowd that it seems they're presented with on a regular basis. The coffee and sipping chocolate were great, as was the strawberry crepe. The waffle wasn't great--it had big hard chunks of sugar in it. Probably a great place that got more popular than it could...

Busy place... decent coffee good sandwich. If you want quiet, won't be found here. Lots of Tribes-people here. Seems like a spot to do homework and chat. Makes me want to go back to college!

This is an awesome place to celebrate a birthday, sit and read/study in a corner, listen to live music, or catch up over coffee. The chai lattes are a little on the sweet side and the thai wrap is a little weird but I can't recommend the mediterranean melt or the portobello sandwich enough!! great vegetarian options. If you're looking... More

The smell of coffee when you get in the place is delicious. They even have a machine that processes the coffee grains right there. Is a small, busy, but cozy place. Loved the food (the burritos were amazing) and the capuchino.

After a cold day of sledding in Colonial Williamsburg, we decided we needed a warm-up and headed to Aromas for some coffee and hot chocolate. My son and his friend LOVED the different options for hot chocolate and proclaimed it to be "the best"!

Tasty food, good price and casual comfort. It's open all day with inside and outside seating. Try their Hound's Tale just down the road, both restaurants are great.

Aromas seems to attract a lot of locals for their good selection of coffees, pastries, and snacks. The lunch sandwiches looked good too (next time?). Seems that a lot of locals favor the place, usually a good sign. Grab a table first, if you can, since there are many folks, especially grad students, camped out with laptops for hours.

Aromas is a great place for coffee, breakfast and lunch. It's noisy and usually busy. Seating is very limited both indoors and outdoors. They make specialty coffees, have wonderful muffins and offer great breakfast fare. Be prepared to wait in line.

My husband and I went for coffee (they have a great variety to choose from) and their amazing apple pie (slightly heated with vanilla ice cream). Aromas seems to be a place frequented by the college students (to converse, study or use the WiFi, similar to a Starbucks), but anyone could go and get a snack (I ended up trying... More

Very loud atmosphere. Food is ok. Coffee is strong and leaves you with a bad after taste. Probably won't go back.
