The sun is shining and spring has officially sprung at Aroma Espresso Bar!
The other day, I had the opportunity to head out to (what will be my new local after our big move!) Aroma Espresso Bar, and check out a sneak peek of their new spring menu options.

Aroma Espresso Bar values nutritional integrity. Every day in each of our locations across Ontario, we chop tomatoes, grill eggplant, mash avocado, cook quinoa, bake bread, and more. Meals are always prepared fresh and made-to-order.
That’s one of the things I love about Aroma Espresso Bar. While yes, the food is quick and convienient – it’s also fresh and nutritious.
This spring, Aroma Espresso Bar is introducing a few new items to their menu…and reinventing a classic staple.
First up, the Harissa Tuna Sandwich
Here’s the thing…tuna and I don’t really get along. I’m sorry, I’m just not a fan. But thankfully – Aroma Espresso Bar is more than happy to customise your order to your liking. So, I swapped out the tuna for chicken and what followed was a delicious combination of flavours in my mouth.
The sandwich is piled high with tuna (or chicken, or even eggplant if you want), tomato, red onion, hard boiled eggs, and pickle – all with a heft spread of harissa (a traditional hot chilli spread), served on a soft sesame and semolina bun. Bonus – you also get some Kalamata olives on the side.
Next – the Warm Grilled Chicken Salad
The Aroma Espresso Bar Warm Grilled Chicken Salad is a staple. It’s a classic go-to, and the team at aroma know this…but they still felt like something was missing. After taking a step back and thinking about it – it hit them. Add their infamous grilled eggplant and red peppers. This upped the ante on not only the taste of the salad – but the presentation too.
This ridiculously healthy salad is full of fresh greens, carrots, tomato, red onion, grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers, and warm grilled chicken. Drizzle as much or as little salad dressing on top as you’d like and you’re all set. Bonus – the salad is BIG, so be prepared for leftovers.
*insert Seinfeld quote – “You just had to order the Big Salad!”
It seems like every so often, a new superfood pops into the sceen. From acai to maca powder. There’s always something new that is chalk full of nutrients and health benefits. Aroma Espresso Bar is ahead of the curve by offering Healthy Spirulina shots in a variety of their chilled drinks.
Aroma Espresso Bar freezes fresh spirulina, adding each shot as ordered – ensuring you get all the nutritional benefits possible, which include vitamins, minerals, and what I find most important – a whole heap of iron. I’m iron deficient – so I need to start adding as much as I can to my diet, and this is a great way to sneak more in without having to gorge on red meat all day, every day…but I mean, I do love me a good steak. LOL
The final new spring menu item at Aroma Espresso Bar is guaranteed to be a hit this spring/summer. The Ice Lemon Mint is a signature slush drink served with fresh mint and ice, blended with lemonade. This would be a perfect drink to add your spirulina shot to!
It should be noted that when you add a spirulina shot to your drink, your beverage will turn green, but – it doesn’t change the taste!
You guys know how much I love sharing my adventures with you…but you also know that I always want YOU to have the chance to experience them for yourself!
Thanks to my friends at Aroma Espresso Bar – I want to give you a chance to win a $50 gift card so that you can devour the new spring menu for yourself!
