Think of L’Aroma Cafe & Bakery as your new home away from home. It’s located on 15 Spencer Street in West Newton, about a mile from campus, and tucked directly behind West Newton Cinema. Cozy seating, faint
café music, and mouth-watering food prepared in-house will make you fall in love with this secluded cafe.
