The next time I feel a cold coming on, I’m driving to Aroma Bakery Café for a bowl of their vegetable noodle matzo ball soup. The yellow curry-colored broth is filled with carrots, zucchini, onions and celery with spices floating on top. The large matzo ball is nice and firm, not crumbly. After eating a big bowl of this soup, I feel fortified.
I’ve been to the Aroma Bakery Café in Encino twice and decided to try their second location on Sunset Blvd.
Open at 7 a.m. the café is filled with patrons sipping Turkish coffee and Café Americano while nibbling on butter and chocolate croissants. The extensive menu is filled with European and Mediterranean cuisine. On Mondays through Fridays, they serve three breakfast specials until 11 a.m. Breakfast #1 is two eggs any style served with fresh orange juice and a coffee or tea of your choice, along with a plate of colorful vegetable salad, feta cheese, olive spread and homemade jam to dab on a variety of freshly baked breads.
