    Chai latte art. One of the few places that don't deny chai latte drinkers their latte art!

    The creamy chai is the best chai that has ever passed my lips.

  • Mindy M.

    Tons of house-made flavors to add to a sweet or spicy chai base. Ask the baristas about what flavors they have, though my faves are salted caramel and chocolate.

    Caramel dream chai will keep you up until 3 a.m, got me thru college and tastes like heaven.

    By far my favorite place for dirty chais. For something sweet the mt rainier or the sea salt. Also the only place besides the green starbucks where you can get clover press drip!
