Aromas World


Aromas - Specialty Coffees & Gourmet Bakery is a unique fast-casual coffeehouse cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a strong emphasis on fresh, healthy items, fine teas and fresh roasted coffees. We provide a warm and cozy environment, fresh, nutritional food, and affordable prices. Whether you want to eat, grab a drink, meet with friends or do some work in a casual and friendly atmosphere, you should visit Aromas. We are pet-friendly too, so bring your four-legged friends. AromasWorld currently has two locations: Williamsburg, VA and Newport News, VA.

Aromas was first created  in Williamsburg on Father's Day in 2000. When we created our family's company "Silver Linings" our intent was to offer an inviting retreat for meeting with good friends and discussing events of the day with diverse visitors from literally around the world.

We wanted to complement their experience with the best available fresh roasted Arabica bean coffees, fine teas and tasty casual foods that we could find, &… for the fairest of prices.

We enjoyed it so much that in June 2006 we opened our second Aromas World on the fountain in City Center at Oyster Point, Newport News.

And so, we invite our friends, new and old, those we've yet to meet, neighbors, and visitors from afar, to stop in either spot, enjoy our comfortable atmosphere, savor the flavors of our delightful faire, and  make Aromas your home away from home.

Aromas has received a number of recognitions as the best coffee shop in the area, but we are more than a coffee house. We are a full cafe, as well as a tea house offering a wide selection of the world's best teas.

Aromas is a place where you can start your day with a delicious full breakfast, have lunch (great sandwiches, salads & homemade soups), and even complete the day with dinner and a glass of wine or beer. We roast our own coffee, and bake our cakes, pies, quiche, cookies, scones and muffins including our yummy chewy chocolate chip cookie. We offer gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan specialties. Stop by and check out yourself why we have some of the best salads, sandwiches and desserts in town.

When you leave, we hope that you are refreshed, and that our Silver Lining has made a difference in your life too. We look forward to your return visits either in person or on the Aromas  

We hope that you'll always remember (to coin a phrase) "to look for the Silver Lining, and try to find the Sunny Side of Life"!
