    Aroma is a blessing !!
    Two weeks before the marriage, our wedding cake designers backed out on us. By the grace of God we were able to find Aroma Bakery!!!! It was only God that could lead us to such wonderdul people. Despite such circumstances Aroma bakery, took on our project and went above and beyond to ensure that the bride got everything that she needed. The cake was beyond gorgeous and absolutely delicious. If you're looking for a cake team with the spirit of excellence you don't need to look any further. Aroma will take care of you, make themselves available to all of your questions and needs, design, and deliver a cake beyond your hearts desire. I have no words to say except God bless you Aroma. We are internally grateful!!!

    We are moved by your kind words and we were honored to be a part of this very special celebration. May you too be blessed and we look forward to celebrating with you again. Jo-Ann and Chef Eileen.

    Jo-Ann was fantastic! The food arrived on time and looked amazing. She even added a personal touch of a corporate logo to the food cards. I was traveling in for the meeting and Aroma made it so easy to plan. I would definitely recommend them and will be using them for future events!

    The cake was delicious and made/decorated as requested and discussed! The bakery even accommodated a last minute change allowing us to purchase a larger cake! Everyone raved over the lemon coconut flavor and we couldn't have asked for more! We will defiantly use Aroma's again!

    Katerina, Congratulations and thank you! It was a pleasure working with you and were honored to be chosen to create your wedding cake. We look forward to working with you again. J&E

    Sorry this review is so late. The only think I can say now is that we rehired Aromas for our board meeting in December. Aromas staff was professional, engaging, service was top notch. I look forward to working with them in the future.

    Great experience! Eileen was beyond professional and such a joy to work with. The food was delicious and Eileen's help with the presentation (even some food she did not prepare) led to very happy guests! Would certainly recommend!

    Aromas catered a family dinner at our apartment in honor of my son's 6th birthday. They prepared a delicious sit down meal for the grown ups and perfect buffet for the children (ages 3-10). They also backed the most extraordinary "Dusty" (from the Disney Planes movie) birthday cake. I highly recommend them.

    Jo-Ann and her team were fantastic!!!! We came by her shop and had a tasting and went over the cake details with her. She wrote down everything and listened to us regarding exactly what we wanted. The strawberry cake with strawberry french buttercream we got was delicious! And the wedding cake itself was absolutely beautiful. I also reached out to her privately to add a little topper in the form of a rabbit and a monkey on the cake as a surprise for my husband. She got every single detail we discussed correct! The cake was also delivered promptly on time. I'm so happy with our decision to use Aromas Boutique Bakery! Thank you guys!

    The easiest people I have ever worked with. I am not an easy to please with almost 40 years in customer service. The food was spectacular, service impeccable and our guests were beyond pleased. I had several guests ask for their business card.

    Aromas was absolutely great. My guests loved the food especially the lavender Szechuan brownies. Also, the amount of food was beyond what I expected and Jo-Ann was always on top of communication and just a pleasure to work with. I'll def be using them again.

    Eileen has hands gifted by the gods and JoAnn's smile can sell the Brooklyn Bridge! Aromas needs a brick and mortar store ASAP!!

    From the moment we went for our tasting, we were sold! Joanne and her sister are awesome culinary artists. Our wedding cake (vanilla cake, with Passionfruit buttercream filling) was to die for) and assorted mini-cupcakes were all gobbled up before the end of the evening. People raved, everyone had a favorite. Chocolate

    Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this very special celebration. It was a pleasure designing a cake especially for you and Curtis. Congratulations, and I will be certain to forward invites to our future tastings. All the best!!

    Amazing customer service, great quality food, always on time. Seriously what a lifesaver! Joann was always so kind and understanding plus she worked within our production budget for the TLC show we are producing. Thank you so much!

    Great experience. Jo-anne from Aromas was extremely friendly and made the catering/delivery process a breeze. The waffles were a success at our event and the toppings were extremely tasty. The cards provided denoting what type of toppings there were was a great touch. Thank you for the complementary pumpkin bread!

    We loved it that Eileen and her sister came to us for the initial cake tastings - everything was delicious and we had a hard time choosing! Then she tweaked a couple of recipes and frosting choices and we came to her place of business and everything was even more delicious! Our Wedding-Cake-Cupcake-Tower was a huge hit! Now married a year, we ate the slices of cake we had frozen on our anniversary - so delicious! I can't recommend them too highly.

    Every time I go to Aromas it like visiting family, Everyone is smiling and very eager to help you. That sounds cliche but it is true. The food is delicious, you can tell that Chef Eileen has put her heart into the food. The whole team are a beautiful bunch of people

    I love this place! The staff is great and the only thing better then them are the treats. If you are in the area, and even if your not, make your way to see the ladies at Aromas.. It's a trip you won't forget.
