It actually has not even had its grand opening yet, it's still in the soft opening phase, but we had to go try it out.
The owner is a good friend of ours, and she is an amazing artist, so we weren't surprised with the attention to detail inside. The shop has a very cool design-- nice old photos, beautiful tea pots, attractive decor and even some original artwork done by the very talented owner herself.
First of all, Brooke and I have had a LOT of bubble tea in our life--- I lived in Taiwan for two years, and Brooke lived there for one year, so bubble tea, or boba tea, or Jen Ju nai cha as we called it in Taiwan, was on our menu on a very regular basis.

I'll probably stick with regular pearls in the future, but they were fun for a change and my kids loved them.
There are the popping pearls, regular pearls, and also nata de coco (coco jelly) available.
Along with the assortment of teas, there is also a variety of meryenda (snack) items to choose from. For our meryenda with our tea, we had the bruschetta, and it was delicious-- high quality olives and olive oil, and great overall flavor. There's also sandwiches, lasagna, baked macaroni, cake, etc. We'll have to try some of that next time.
Our whole family had a great time, and we'll be going back soon!
Asia already commented that it would be a great place to go on dates.
