Aroma Buena Catering & Cafe

Founded in 2006 by Ivan Valencia, Aroma Buena Catering quickly became a leader in the culinary scene of the San Francisco Bay Area. Through dedication and perseverance, Ivan built a stellar reputation for providing exceptional service and delectable cuisine.

In 2019, Patricia Herrera took the helm, ushering in a new era while maintaining the company’s core values. We remain dedicated to delivering an unparalleled culinary experience and continuously stay abreast of the latest food trends to meet the evolving needs of our clientele.

Expanding our horizons beyond renowned catering services, we have introduced a vibrant café experience, evolving into Aroma Buena Catering & Café. We continue to craft enticing dishes that are fresh, authentic, and health-conscious, ensuring a delightful experience for every palate. Our café offers a welcoming atmosphere where guests can enjoy the same high-quality food and service that has made our catering famous.
