Though American coffee shops often emulate classic French cafés with bistro seating and freshly baked snacks, they distinguish themselves by refusing to mix lattes with rapiers. Enjoy a European-inspired café experience with today's Groupon: for $8, you and a companion each get a coffee or tea drink and a dessert (up to a $17.60 value) at L'Aroma Café's West Newton location.
Pair up with a pal or loved one for an escape to the quaint and sunny L'Aroma Café, where skilled baristas steep imported teas and steam espressos with the level of care seen among ex-plumbers in belt shops. Glass-top tables fog up under mugs of freshly brewed drip coffee and espresso concoctions, and teas sourced from Sri Lanka fill the air with scents of jasmine, spiced chai, and mango. Other beverages range from hot chocolate and chai lattes to zesty apple cider, and L'Aroma can serve any coffee drink on ice, decaffeinated, or in a miniature replica of the local water tower. Fresh pastries and other desserts beckon tongues from behind the café's glass counter. French macaroons wave-down taste buds with buttercream icing and tea bread spells out invites with apricots and pecans.
