Wife and I love this place! The owner truly cares about his drinks and dessert. Great quality! I recommend the Thai, coffee Thai, and Taro iced boba tea. Try it out!

Just tried this place for the first time last night. It was great! Cool decor, and you can see the kitchen while they make your drink/ice cream. The man working, Tony, was pleasant and made me a delicious Taro smoothie. It was basically a milkshake. The boba itself also seemed fresh. Best boba place I've been to in the Triangle so far, but there are still more for me to check out.

I have been looking for a great bubble tea place since I moved from Canada and finally found it here! Loved the addition of coconut flakes in the coconut bubble tea!

So clean, and such a cute little spot. Their boba tea is the best I have found in this area. And friendly customer service!

Huge number of flavors and good sized Boba tea drinks. But it's a bit pricey and they don't have those fun sealed plastic tops on the cups. They also serve ice cream and other sweet treats. When I was last her several months ago the place seemed so empty as to worry me that it would go out of business soon. Its less than ideal location out of view from the street probably doesn't help matters. That said, they exceeded my expectations and provided tasty boba, so I hope they get more patrons.

Boba tea, ice cream and smoothies. Generous amount of tapioca balls in my boba tea. They have the sealed tops on the boba tea now.
