Aroma . Buenos Aires
Avenida Santa Fe is a lengthy one way boulevard that runs through the Recoleta and the Barrio Norte neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. The street is lined with clothing stores, cafes, restaurants, travel agencies, and a blend of many other businesses. Walking down the street is a treat to the eyes with glassy storefronts catering to those of any budget – even if the traffic can be noisy and chaotic at times.
One place I found myself visiting almost daily during my stay in Buenos Aires was “Aroma,” a large coffee shop on the corner of Avenida Santa Fe and Parana.
Aroma is a chain, so don’t confuse it with the older and smaller relaxed coffee shops that dot the city. At Aroma you order at the counter, grab your food, pay, and sit. For a traveler who needs a quick breakfast before jetting to “do” the city its a convenient option.
This bright cheery place offers coffee of all types, plus a very large breakfast menu for a coffee shop. Down a large open staircase is a lower level offering a quiet place to sit with friends, or if you’re me attempt to improve your Spanish.
I’m not sure why exactly I took a picture of my empty cup and trash – but there you go.
