There is a good choice at this Aroma but it is expensive especially for a Uni café. Also it's a pain literally (knee problems) getting down there from the Uni Plaza. It's big and it gets a bit noisy too.

All the sandwiches and baguettes are far too heavy and and taste like the mayonnaise/creamy sauce that appears to be on EVERYTHING. Salads are also contaminated in that stuff and I always feel sick after eating from Aroma, and I am by no means a fussy eater!
