I love Great Bear. It's an internet cafe . I order a whole pot of tea for 3.00. They have a great variety. The coffee is great too.

The coffee here is very good! It's a great place to meet friends and just hang out. It has internet so It's also a good place to bring your laptop and study, etc. Sometimes the noise level can be a little overwhelming, depending on who's...More
