The Scene Newly opened in a quaint row house sits Old Town’s first bubble tea room. The sign is small and parking is a bear, but trust me when I say the owner, Jessica, is warm and friendly, and has transformed the space to an inviting yet simple space with a great view while enjoying your tea and a sweet treat. The Food I’m new to bubble tea and was a little apprehensive eating tapioca pearls known as bobas. The Tawainese drink consist of fruit flavored tea, shaken, and served over bobas. Popular choices includes Peach, Passionfruit, and Taro. I chose the Peach and while the drink wasn’t cold, I liked the flavor and the bobas tasted like candy gummies. In addition to the tea which is brewed daily, the owner makes sandwiches and baked goods from scratch. That’s right, no boxed cake mixes or premade frosting here. The sweets rotate regularly and there were a lot of choices like dream bars and whoopie pies. I opted for the lemon cupcake with raspberry cream cheese icing. The flavors weren’t overfly sweet and I could tell they were homemade. Jessica told me to come back for the popular banana cupcake with peanut butter frosting and chocolate drizzle. She even will make customers’ requests for desserts. You can’t help but want to support this small business. Bubble tea is $4 for 16 oz. or $4.50 for a 20 oz drink. Treats range in price from $1-$3.50. Get a sandwich (sriracha chicken salad anyone), bag of chips, and bubble tea for a reasonable $8.50. The Kid Appeal Everything about Bubble Dip makes for a fun visit for kids. If you’re looking for a less caffeinated option for your child, the cooler stocks Horizon organic vanilla and chocolate milk boxes and bottled water. My daughter liked that the fresh squeezed lemonade wasn’t sweet. She tried the Snickerdoodle cookie which was soft, but she was hoping I’d get her the brownie. There is a quaint room with a bubble theme on the wall with a big window to people watch. There’s talk from moms expressing interest in the space to have birthday parties. While the space isn’t huge, there is an adequate amount of tables and large chairs. Noise Level Quiet and relaxing. High Chairs/Boosters None. Changing Tables None.
