“Awesome!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

The first time i tried bubble island it took some getting used to. But it is addicting and so much fun! The staff is always nice and welcoming. They have games to play, which makes for a fun quiet night out, and the free wifi is awesome during finals week!

Even the tea, hot, without bubbles is amazing! Definately a different venue then starbucks/bigb if you go the hot route!

“Not Bad”
Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

The pearls in the drinks take some getting used to. The tea is refreshing.

“Love.”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

The area is a little obnoxious, unless you are a big fan of large amounts of college kids.But trust me, it's worth it. Bubble tea is the best. At first it's a little wierd. Big tapioca pearls in your drink, but after your first tea, you will be HOOKED. You will crave them constantly. The people who work there are nice and are very patient when you are just gawking at the menu cause you are clueless your first time. T

“Weird Place, Weird Drinks, but go and try something”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Alot of weird possibilities on the menu, but go give it a try.

Also, essentially, the "bubbles" are just gummy balls. Just an FYI when you are ordering.

“Delcious!”
Reviewed May 7, 2009

Calling this a restaurant is misleading, as it is more of a beverage place with only a few snack food options (like popcorn chicken). But the Bubble Tea is amazing! It is definitely worth the extra couple cents to get the colored bubbles or mango bubbles over the plain tapioca ones. I've had pretty much all of the hot and cold drinks on the menu and they've always been delciious. My favorites are the hot turtle tea and cold tiki tea both with oreo and colored bubbles. It's a great place to go to study or hang out with friends.
