Aromas Coffee

Aromas Coffee

Hello Food KigaliThis has to be one of my favorite coffee places in Kigali. Situated straight across from the Teacher’s College in Remera (bordering on Kimironko), you’ll always see trendy Rwandans coming for lunch between classes. The coffee is amazing, and their selection of iced drinks and milkshakes is both cheap and good.

For a hearty lunch, I highly recommend the omelet wrap, an insanely huge dish consisting of a 5-egg omelet wrapped around beef strips and fried vegetables. And in case you’re still hungry, it comes with bread and butter – greatness!

Most of the times I have been here, the service has been fairly quick, but on one occasion I had to wait for about an hour, and when the food finally came it was cold! Everything was kind of off that day though, from the bitter espresso to the dry chocolate cake. Well, no place is perfect every time – at least not in Kigali.

Steak OmletteIn addition to isolated events of disappointing service, Aromas Coffee also needs to work on the interior design. It’s kind of like sitting inside a glass gazebo, which arguably can be interesting at times, but which on hot sunny days feels more like being fried like an ant under a magnifying glass (ah, glorious childhood memories…)

All in all, though, Aromas Coffee is a charming place, not yet pestered by hordes of loud tourists (and the price-jump accompanying them). The atmosphere is laid-back and the area around is perfect for an afternoon stroll (which you might need after devouring one of their huge plates).
