Most people know this place as Donald Glover’s boba shop, but this Silver Lake spot has more going on than a celebrity owner. It looks like a spaceship lobby, with mirrored walls, neon spotlights, and groups of Gen Z-ers taking photos with a 10-foot statue. The futuristic decor could be appealing if you’re a Disney adult who misses Star Wars land, but the bubble tea doesn’t quite live up to the over-the-top interior. Design aside, Jellyman is another flashy cafe made for likes and clicks. From pricey fruit drinks to a lineup of watered-down lattes, the menu is pretty meh. We’d skip the TikTok-friendly peanut butter and jelly milk tea (a surprisingly gross combination in liquid form) and overly sweet strawberry milk latte, and stick to a simple jasmine tea.
