The “sublime” siphon coffee at this “family-owned” Taiwanese tearoom in Chinatown is “fresh, strong and delicious” , the teas are “excellent” , and they’re complemented by treats such as the “delectable dumpling sampler” and “heaven-sent” cookies (plus full lunch and dinner); “Grace, the owner, lives up to her name” , so “don’t be fooled” by the “hole-in-the-wall” digs.

I love this little tea and coffee shop. Their food is also amazing. The sauce for their orange beef is delicious. Took my sister here years ago. I always love coming back for some tea. Get the jasmine tea it is so good.

Great food. Good, convenient coffee to go. Nice small resturant with great service. I've been going to Ray's for years to get a coffee to go. Just started ordering food to go and their lunch boxes are great. Soups are good too. This is a nice spot to sit in or grab something to go in the heart of china town. The prices are reasonable too. Grab some lunch and enjoy the city!

A cute little cafe that has a pretty robust selection of Chinese food. Their siphon coffee is excellent and there is a wide selection of beans. Plus, it is fun to watch them brew coffee using the vac pots. There aren't too many cafe's with vac pots.
