My first time here, I had the pumpkin Teanychino which was smooth, nicely spiced, and topped with frothy deliciousness. When I was here for dinner recently, I got the vegan Cubano, which was really good, but not at all like a Cubano. You can't go wrong w/ soy meat, avocado, and vegan cheese, but it would have been better if the cheese was sliced thinly and possibly melted, versus just coming in huge, room-temperature chunks.

Teany has a nice, but not overly ambitious menu and huge tea selection, but I'm disappointed that they offer the usual Vegan Treats cake and brownie selection that every other veg restaurant also offers instead of making their own desserts.

I must also say that Teany to be fairly pretentious. Patrons tend to be young, white, and stylish, and it really just isn't my vibe. Nobody has been rude, they just feel much more self-absorbed than my usual crowd.

Teany offers an extensive tea and juice menu with light snacks and desserts. I wasn't that impressed with their chocolate vegan cheesecake ($5) (it was served as room temperature, instead of cold), but I liked their smooth ice tea ($3) and the absolutely delectable "teanychino," which I had with almond milk ($3.50). It was light years ahead of every day chai lattes in terms of taste and refinement. Their chai latte ($3.50) was extremely understated and good, but paled in comparison to the teanychino. This is, in the end, a good place to get a late afternoon snack or drink, but be warned that it is cash-only and gets packed quite easily during peak hours, and especially during the weekends. It's a small place and not good for groups larger than 2 or 3. Your best best is to go on a weekday after 2 p.m. (you might combine it to a trip to the nearby Tenement Museum).
