Modeled on a French cafe, Aromas is where to go to people-watch while getting your caffeine fix. It's kind of like watching reality TV but with fewer punch-ups and you can get cheesecake here.
So what's life like on the boulevard? Let's take a look.
While the prices are still on the more expensive side of things (mains start at $30), you do get some real quality food and drinks for your coin.
Below we had:
- Hervey bay scallops, apple, cauliflower, preserved lemon, black pudding
- House made lemonade
I was pretty excited with the prospect of black pudding with the scallops. It was an interesting addition to these seafood morsels, and worked so well. The scallops themselves were a little over cooked, but you could still tell they were using some super fresh produce. The apple and bits of preserved lemon lifted the dish brilliantly.
The house made lemonade was a winner too, with piles of fresh lemon and lime squeezed into the glass. It was beautifully refreshing with the scallops.
