Cha-An Bonbon is a charming Japanese cafe located on East 9th Street that’s owned and operated by mother and daughter duo Tomoko and Sakura Yagi, who are Japanese and Japanese-American respectively. Cha-An Teahouse is the original teahouse, which is closed at the moment, however, sister cafe Cha-An Bonbon continues to keep the Japanese wagashi tradition alive, pairing matcha and hojicha lattes with a variety of mochi and desserts like the anmitsu. They also have soft serve versions of both lattes, which, I mean, c’mon. Currently, it’s pick-up and delivery only on Thursday from 1-6pm and Friday to Sunday from 1-7pm.
