Healthy fresh choices at Aroma Espresso Bar Toronto #review #giveaway

Aroma Espresso Bar logo

As a mom to two young kids, eating out a restaurant can be a daunting and stressful event. What happens if your kid screams? Will there be healthy options on the menu? Will my child(ren) eat anything from the menu? Will they have high chairs? How long will I have to wait to get my food? Really, my list could continue but instead let me tell you about a little gem of a restaurant chain in the GTA. Aroma Espresso Bar. I have frequented Aroma Espresso Bar for many, many years.

For me, Aroma is one of my go-to places to eat with my family. I love the food. It is loaded with healthy options and the portions are generous. I love that breakfast is available all day as I’m a person who loves BFD (breakfast for dinner). As every order is made-to-order, Aroma is able to accommodate many food allergies and food preferences. I come from a lineage of people who like to “hold this, add that, substitute this for that” and Aroma is always happy to oblige. Also if you prefer tofu they are able to make the swap with any other protein in a meal.

So, what are my favourite foods there? I absolutely LOVE the power breakfast. It’s usually my go-to item anytime of the day. It’s perfect as I’m able to share it with one of my little kids too. It consists of eggs, mixed greens with cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, feta cheese, cream cheese, olives, avocado spread and freshly baked bread. The Shakshuka is two sunny-side up eggs, over a tomato and pepper sauce and served with Tahini and bread. A yummy choice at anytime during the day!

Princess Peach loves their Mango smoothies. It’s very refreshing on a hot day too!

 For me, it’s also the little things at Aroma that make each experience enjoyable there. I love that when you order a coffee you get a little chocolate with it. Who doesn’t love a bit of chocolate along with their drink. It’s the perfect pairing. Aroma also has a water station where you can help yourself at any time! No waiting for anyone to bring water to your table. I also love that Aroma is stroller accessible and very kid friendly. All of the locations that I have been at (which is many) I am able to maneuver my stroller around and a many high chairs. I also love that their food is healthy and fresh. I’m not one for choosing a sandwich wrapped in plastic and there is none of that at Aroma! Aroma bakes their own bread in-house which means you are always getting the freshest homemade products.

I also love that you can get your food to go at Aroma. As the gorgeous weather has finally arrived, we will be spending lots more time at parks. What better way to get a healthy meal to go from Aroma, sit with your family in the park, play, eat and make wonderful memories!

Celebrating a birthday, a family event or having a meeting? Did you know that Aroma now caters? They have a fabulous menu and you can choose a variety of freshly made salads, sandwiches and pastries for your party! Add in  a fruit platter, coffee, and iced drinks and you are all set to entertain!
