The service was good at the cafe, but they seemed to be understaffed. The breakfast bagel had bacon and cheese and a very spicy sauce that wasn't to my liking.

Our Bacon Bagel is known for its sweet Chili mustard which we make in house. We apologize if you felt it's too sweet but our taste palette is guidelined by our local community who is very fund of spices and influenced by Asia and the pacific. Thanks for patronage More

I have found it difficult to find a good coffee that suits my taste like back home. Aroma Cafe ticks the box for me. One of the concierge at our hotel (Hilton Hawaiian Village), told me to try here and I'm glad I did. A great flat white. I haven't had any food here but would highly recommend the coffee.

Visited this place a couple of times, the coffee is wonderful (try the Coco Choco Mocha!). The Italian sodas are great too. The sandwiches looked fabulous, though we didn't get a chance to try them. Friendly staff too.

I only had a latte here, so I can't judge the food really. :) It was fine - good really. Convenient. But expensive.

This is one of the best soy vanilla lattes I've had. This is a very cute relaxed coffee place with lovely staff and great coffee. There are pastries available too and although I didn't try one they looked delicious. The only downside to this place is there isn't really anywhere to sit in the store to drink the coffee, but...

I am a repeat customer and the LATTES are ALWAYS EXCELLENT - regardless of who makes it, time of day, or anything. I LOVE Mt Kaala. All those people going to Starbucks should try Mt Kaala for some locally gorwn coffee made with aloha.
