Revue is a pretty cool spot. They have a huge selection of various drinks (coffees, teas, smoothies, et cetera), cookies, cinnamon rolls, soups, and sandwiches. There’s always plenty of seating to choose from on the patio, in the main part of the cafe, or in the back room, which can also be rented for events. It’s a cute space. Most of the teas they serve are just Stash bags, so it’s not exactly the place to go for tea, but if you need a place to hang out and enjoy some jazz or listen to stimulating conversation, it’s a great place to check out. I have to say that some of the staff could be friendlier to non-regulars, but for the most part, they’re pretty cool. They’re often short-handed, it seems, with one person manning the whole space sometimes. They accept cards with a fifty cent fee and have free wifi with purchases.
Close to Fresno State, right off the 168, fantastic drinks. The atmosphere is a little lacking, but I get my drinks to-go anyway. It would be wonderful if they took debit or credit, but they’re cash-only, so I don’t go in very often. Nothing is ever too sweet and they generally give me a nice amount of boba.
Teazer (the Tower location) used to be one of my favorite places. They have a huge assortment of really fantastic tea drinks, and they’ve expanded their selection of food items (mostly desserts), as well. They’ve truly got something for every taste and the staff has (in my experience) always been cheerful and more than willing to suggest drinks based on customers’ tastes. The atmosphere is generally pleasant and their hours are great. There’s plenty of comfy seating and even a selection of tea pots, infusers, and more for sale in the corner of the shop. You can also buy loose teas for pretty reasonable prices. The only real downfall for me is the price. The drinks are worth it, of course, but I can’t afford $4 drinks very often. Another small problem I have with the place is that they only take cash, unless you spend over $5, which, again, is understandable, but it can be a little inconvenient. Overall, I quite enjoy Teazer, despite the negative reputation it gets as a “hipster” spot.
