Founded in Jerusalem in 1994, Aroma Espresso Bar has expanded worldwide including Israel, Canada, and the U.S. In Toronto, they opened their first location in the Annex in 2007 and since expanded across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
The downtown Markham location was bright with a condo-like feel with mix seating including high tables, booths, and round tables with comfy red chairs. Aside from having high chairs and family washrooms, we loved the comfy seats and the open space, with many spots to park the stroller.
Check out the short video (about 20 seconds) of the downtown Markham Aroma Espresso Bar:
I have been a fan of Aroma’s for a long time (read my review of the Markville Mall, and College St. location) with filling and healthy options for the whole family. Our kids normally eat off of the regular menu, but I just discovered they have a kids menu. Although there is a small selection, I loved their options.
My daughter got a large bowl of pasta in a sweet and tangy tomato sauce, a cookie and a chocolate milk for only $6.50. There was even leftovers!
We also ordered the Aroma Hash, Philly Steak sandwich, Smoked Salmon sandwich, and Mediterranean Pasta salad. The sandwiches are still my favourite menu items with the bread baked fresh daily. Of course, a visit wouldn’t be complete without coffee and an Aroma chocolate.
To celebrate the launch of their kids menu, Aroma has launched a really cool contest that started on October 20th, 2016!
The prize is an 8 x 10 framed illustration of your child by artist Chelsea Lundy valued at $100. Chelsea has a large portfolio of impressive drawings (check out her Instagram @chelsdrawsyou).
All you have to do is enter your name, upload a photo and click on “Enter Contest” button on the entry site. Aroma is awarding 10 prizes with one winner every week. Winners are announced every Tuesday. Full rules and regulations on the entry page.
* Disclosure: I collaborated with Aroma Espresso Bar for the #AromaKidz campaign and received some perks, including the Chelsea Lundy drawing of my kids. All opinions expressed in the post are my own.
