Wish we had more of this type of tea house in big cities, a very 'zen' place where you could sit quietly to meditate on the stuff of life, or enjoy tea and other light fare with friends (in quiet conversations). Different kinds of seating arrangements, the idea is to take you away from the bustling city and provide you... More

A lovely little place: dozens of different teas, the menu describes each. Sit at a table, ring the brass bell when you're ready to order. The wait staff knows the teas as much as a sommelier knows wine. It's food, mostly middle eastern, is beautifully prepared and presented.

Dobra is an inexpensive place to relax in comfort while exploring some familiar and unusual teas and tisanes. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. You order from an 82pp menu with full descriptions of the teas and photos of them, and then the staff prepare it expertly for you so it always comes out right. At the front of... More

I had no idea what to expect, but I am glad I took the time to go here. My self and 2 teenage gals 15 & 17 got a seat in one of the 'tea temples'. We took our shoes off and sat on pillows and read the tea book. Ordered up some nibbly bites, Hummus, Dahab (goat cheese and... More

Dobra Tea feels more like a coffee house than either a mid-eastern style teahouse or english style tearoom. Boasting an extensive list of teas, the folks at Dobra will make you feel right at home. Unpretentious in both attitude and serving style, you will feel welcome to stay as long as you would like sipping and relaxing or reading your... More

This place was recommended by a shopkeeper up the street, and we are so glad it was! What a nice place to just go and relax. It has a very chill atmosphere and calmness about it, that is only outdone by the most amazing tea selection I have ever seen. The tea menu reads like a book and there are... More

What a great place to just stop in and enjoy some wonderful tea and great food. This was a recommendation from a nearby store owner and it really was nice of her to point us to Dobra's. I had the iced Tulsi Basil tea and it was delicious. My husband and I also shared a mezze plate which was excellent... More

Dobra Tea is a treasure. I am hoping to find a place like it when I return to Vancouver but I doubt I will. This is a full experience. The main tea "bar" is an area just full of all the different herbs and devices for gourmet tea experiences. The attendants are friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is the size... More
