Aroma Café, 39 Light Square

Your reviewer ventured to the Higher Ground Art Café in Light Square. It is the week before the 2010 Adelaide Fringe Festival and this is going to be one of the venues. He wanted somewhere for a bite to eat and hot chocolate but the kitchen was not open until 4pm. The next port of call was the Aroma Café just a little further around the square. This is also a fringe venue for theatre productions "LiveFish", "My Name is Rachel Corrie" and "True West". It is also the venue for "Invisible Red Threads" which is an exhibition of porcelain work and jewellery which was open on the day your reviewer attended. The exhibition was well presented and showed many dainty and well-crafted pieces.

Aroma Café is a franchise of coffee shops specialising in serving tertiary education institutions. The light square venue is good example of Café Foyerism. The foyer of the TAFE Adelaide College of the Arts is an impressive spectacle with big windows and walls clad in a shiny metal covering. The hot chocolate was only three dollars but come in a basic paper cup. It was fairly frothy with a sprinkle of chocolate on top. The drink was weak and sweet and not particularly satisfying.
