Modern Japanese cafe and tea bar

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

Teaism serves up modern Japanese food - mostly lighter fare - and has a large selection of tea from their sister tea shop. They also offer breakfast and brunch foods such as tofu scrambles.

You'll find a peppering of vegan dishes and sandwiches to veg sushi to a few noodle and rice dishes.

This Teaism branch was close to my conference so I had lunch here one day. It is housed in a gorgeous old two-story rowhouse and the interior feels like an old-world European bakery/restaurant. The atmosphere is definitely excellent.

As with the other Teaism branch I visited, I felt the food preparation here was a bit slow (especially considering the busy nature of the joint with people standing around in a small space) and the prices are a bit high. That said, my tempeh curry was quite tasty ($9).

This location has highly limited seating, with space for 7-8 downstairs and maybe 10-12 upstairs. At lunch hours it gets packed quickly.
