Nada Tea & Coffee House (1 review)
The contemporary interior of Japanese-inspired Nada is meant to offer a peaceful teahouse experience. And it does. The sleek space employs an imaginative combination of materials, such as bamboo and aluminum with an illuminated wall of straw mesh. Opposite is a long banquette with pillows and pendant lighting. Service is friendly and informative. Tea is presented on small wood trays with an hourglass set to suggest when your tea is ready. Green teas are imported from Yanoen, Kyoto, Japan and black teas from the UK’s Ahmad. I enjoyed a sampler of greens: Sencha, Genmaicha, Hojicha. The honey-colored Hojicha was my favorite. Lunch fare includes panini, soup and quiche. The food is special; my chicken pesto panini was a cut-above as well as the mission fig scone. I look forward to my next visit to Nada for Japanese teas and thoughtful presentation and service.
