Located near our hotel and went in search of some good tea for my husband who was feeling ill.... asked the cashier about some of the teas and she had no idea about ingredients or if they were decaf or not!

I have had CBTL coffee in India and loved it, and when I saw it in the US, I just knew I had to go here. The best part about them is that they have no-sugar added vanilla and chocolate powders.

My daughter and i enjoyed a cafe and tea with a quich and bagel. Everything was very hot and very delicious. We will be back today! Completely beats Starbucks in our hotel for both food and service.
