Poor Service - Edit

Went in on Sunday night at around 8:45pm. We were not served stating last call has already been made. Hours on the website show store closes at 10pm. We were making a long journey from Canada and still had another 4 hours to drive. This was one of the only places I can eat at and despite telling the waiter we were turned down. Really rude staff. Will not visit again.

Pros: Not a good experience

Cons: Poor service

Desserts and teas are stellar...dumplings...not so much! - Edit

I absolutely LOVED the vegan cheesecake, along with the amazing teas I got to try. But the Chinese Dumplings were pretty gross. The shell was made of a super thick and gritty dough that was like semi-raw pie crust except with sand-like chickpea flour as the base. You get two of them but I couldn't even finish the second one. I had to drink so much liquid to get the thick dough to go down! My friend had the red lentil daal and said it was the best she has ever had and couldn't stop talking about it. Overall, this place is so great!!! I just wish I had ordered a different meal for the lunch part! The cheesecake, which is $6.50 for a 3 inch cake was worth every buttery and smooth. It's exactly how I remember dairy cheesecake!

Pros: amazing vegan dessert options, awesome staff and overall vibe, so many teas to choose from!

Cons: the dumplings, small portions

Such a relaxing place - Edit

As a vegan who also cannot eat gluten this is my favorite place ever. The pitas are vegan and gluten free and only like 2 of their dishes are not vegan. Plus! They contribute to causes to keep war out of tea producing regions. They also work to keep work conditions for all of their sources humain.

More than tea - Edit

Dobra Tea is primarily a tea house, but their lunches are fine as well. They offer pita with various spreads and other items. We had pita with ezme (Turkish roasted red pepper) and hummus, and edamane. For dessert we had halvah, daifuku mochi, and a chocolate truffle. The food was good. You can get a filling lunch here. Local suppliers are used. The varieties of teas carried are amazing. A demonstration of tea preparation is helpful.

Pros: good for lunch too, serene dining

A good place to catch up with friends - Edit

Dobra has a wide selection of hot teas (they hand you what looks like a tea textbook, you ring a bell when you're ready to order), and some iced teas as well. You can also purchase dry tea here They have several light food options - many are vegan, some are gluten-free. I love the Mezze plate with ezme, dolmas and olives. It is a little pricy for food. Try to sit in one of the beaded off floor rooms - they are more comfy than the little tables. Always pretty dark, interesting music. The tea makes this place smell great. This is a good place to go to catch up with a friend.

Pros: extensive tea menu, fresh and tasty light fare

Cons: pricey, I'm not a fan of the bell, dim, cramped
