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.

Good coffee in a clean coffee shop. I had the ice coffee and it was great. Not too much room inside the cafe for seating but it wasn't crowded when I was there on a weekday afternoon.

*Hidden gem alert* It's cute, cozy, and peaceful with vine arches, garden sets, and flowers. It's like pressing the pause button on life over coffee - with free wifi in a great atmosphere. They serve drinks only from coffee/latte (hot or iced) to lemon tea for the price of $3+ (donations).

Best coffee I ever had!!! Their dumpling sampler and shrimp fried rice is amazing as well. Their coffee is so good that I buy a pound of their house blend and make it at home!
