Roast all coffee in house... tastings are on the weekends. They are only a roaster, so you cannot purchase drinks - only coffee tastings. They sell their coffee, it is amazing - and worth trying / taking a little of Idy back home with you!

Not only do they have some pretty amazing Crepes - savory AND sweet - as well as gelato, shakes, bubble waffles and some of the best cappuccino on the mountain, but their VIEW is the best on the hill for a restaurant - you can see Tahquitz from the tables outside. Their bfast crepe is yummy and they have a crepe not on the menu - ask for lemon, butter and powdered sugar with a side of vanilla gelato. You won't be sorry.

Aroma is a local staple and definitely a good option for dining. Catch local musicians on weekend evenings (and some week nights!) as well as a good selection of pasta, steaks, seafood and salads. Good ambiance with a large, heated outdoor patio.
