Uncommon Grounds is a great cafe that sells wonderful and reasonably priced tea and coffee. They’ve always got the day’s paper lying around, and don’t get antsy if you want to sit down for a bit and read it! The staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is excellent- it’s not a tea room per se (really more like a nice, local cafe) but their tea is great and you can have it there or take it to go, which is great when you’re in a hurry!
I couldn’t be prouder to call Dobra my hometown tea room! The staff are friendly and extraordinarily knowledgeable, the atmosphere is perfect, the food is delicious [albeit overpriced] but the tea… the tea is where Dobra really shines!
Some of my favorite teas from Dobra include their Russian Caravan, Memories of Prague, and Rooibos… but really, I love all of it! Their green teas are truly amazing- you can really tell that the people who work there love what they do and know a lot about it. Dobra is one of those places that you can never quite go to often enough- some of my fondest memories involve sitting in Dobra watching the snow fall outside while I’ve got a steaming pot of green tea and a friend across the table! It’s a great place to try expensive and/or otherwise cost-prohibitive teas- I tried really amazing pu-erh there and loved it! Five stars because I love this place- can you tell?
