What we ordered: Hot Japanese Cherry Tea, Iced Lychee Peach Tea, Iced Earl Grey Creme Tea, Larb Sandwich on Sourdough, Satay Satay Sandwich on Sourdough, Bird And Apple Sandwich on Sourdough, Queen Bee Brick Toast.
When you enter the shop, the wait staff immediately greets you before seating you. After being seated, we were given our menus by the waitress. I ordered the iced lychee peach tea, which was described as peach infused organic black tea with hints of apricot, osmanthus, and ripe pear. Upon receiving the tea, I was pleasantly surprised about the flavor. It was the perfect mixture of lychee and peach, neither overpowering one another. It did however remind me a tad bit of Teavana, but less watered down. I do regret getting the tea iced because as soon as I took a sip I knew it would’ve been ten times better hot. *The teas listed on the first page of the menu are not served with any sweetener.*
I couldn’t leave without trying their sandwiches and dessert. I ordered the satay satay sandwich and the queen bee brick toast. The sandwich was made of grilled chicken, red onion, pickled cucumber, carrot, provolone cheese, and a curry peanut sauce. There was a little too much carrot in there for my liking, but overall the sandwich was fantastic. The curry peanut sauce reminded me of authentic Thai peanut sauce. The sandwich came with an amazing side salad and this is coming from someone who hates salad. The dressing for the salad is to die for; it completely covers the taste of the vegetables with just a tiny bit of dressing.
And last but certainly not least, the dessert. To be honest, I was quite apprehensive about ordering the queen bee brick toast. It was described as buttery toast with cookies and cream ice cream and organic honey. The thought of honey and cookies and cream did not sound pleasant, but I decided to try it anyway. It was amazing. The honey perfectly complimented the ice cream.
While eating I did happen to notice the plate and silverware were from IKEA. It wasn’t bad quality or anything just surprising. Maybe the owner was trying to cut costs towards the end. Overall though, my experience there was pretty great. The prices were surprisingly cheap and I thoroughly enjoyed all the food. I will definitely be back.
“The description said the sandwich would be ‘spicy’ yet I was surprised to find that it was actually spicy. Beware.” – Tia Smith
“The majority of the teas offered are unsweetened with very subtle flavoring, so if you’re not a fan of unsweet tea, you might want to take a chance on some of the traditional cream base teas the restaurant has to offer!” – Tia Little
“The dressing makes the salad, and the salad was my favorite part.” – Tia Smith
