Everything is great about this location except for parking (metered) & the weirdo address. It gives an addy on 2nd Street and yet it's on the southeast corner on Main Street of 2nd & Main. Cool girl with tats on her arms helped me out the other day to pick out some beans for my mom. I asked her a bunch of idiotic questions. I mean I drink coffee. I know what I like. Espresso hot or on ice. But I don't grind - I just do drive thru @ Starbucks. Anyway, I ended up with Organic Venice blend. Filled baggy of 1 lb @ $11.25/lb. She let me taste the Black Gold for free AND gave me a double espresso of the house blend on the house as well for buying a pound of beans. I wish they'd open one in Glendale within walking distance 'cos then I might be tempted to give up on Starbucks. It's all in the beans, baby.

Swung by after an AYCE KBBQ fest at Tahoe Galbi next door on a Saturday evening. It was 2/3 full of people in their 30's - 50's. My girlfriend wanted to check out the area where you take off your shoes & sit on an elevated wood platform on cushions. Yeah, I was so over that after 5 minutes (I was wearing tight jeans & trying not to show crack out back). She ordered the shaved ice with red bean & fruit & mochi (pat bing soo). I got the citrus tea (yu jah cha). Boytoy got the Lover's Tea (sarang cha) - we teased him that this tea came with a pink rose floating on top of it! To our pleasant surprise, all three items were pretty good & not that pricey! I definitely will be coming back here again!
Oh my gosh, as a tea lover, this place is my new Mecca. Really cool urban vibe, with so many amazing flavors of loose leaf tea to purchase, and the cold tea drink I ordered from the tea bar (Marakesh Mojito, I think it was called) was like an incredible craft cocktail. I'd definitely consider hitting this place up in lieu of a bar prior to dinner at Factory Kitchen or Oficina Brera. (They also do have tea-infused cocktails if you want something boozy.) Only downside is that I wish they served more in the way of eats beyond scones and pastries.
