If all you want is a pastry or baked goods, then by all means visit the Aroma in LaJolla. We recently had breakfast at the Aroma on a Saturday morning. There were very few people at the restaurant and we got a seat outside to enjoy the day. The service was terrible, it took forever for someone to take our order, then when we got our coffee, my coffee was spilled and sitting in a wet puddle of a saucer, causing lots of dripping and a mess. The server did not care and left us. The food we ordered was basic stuff, but it took a long time and when we got it, it was cold, clearly the waiter was late in picking it up.
We spend so much extra time here that we just wanted to eat and get out of there, never to return again. We did not send our food back or really complain since they were clearly not interested in our business.
We did see a bunch of groups starting to come in that meet there regularily, perhaps they treat their regulars with respect. But it is clearly obvious they have no intention of creating any new regulars.
We really should have gone to Cody's, when we walked by Cody's it was emptry when we returned it was packed, we cleary are just early risers and LaJolla does not wake up on the weekend until after 9..... Next time we go to LaJolla we will visit Cody's and never waste our time, apetite or money on the Aroma
