Ray's Cafe & Tea House


When you walk up to the counter at Ray’s Cafe & Tea House, their intricate slow-drip display might remind you of high school chemistry class. But the whole setup is essential to what makes this one of the best coffee and tea spot in the neighborhood. They offer siphon coffee and a 12-hour slow-drip cold brew, blends like Jamaican blue moon and sumiyaki, along with teas for every occasion like oolong and red bush that don’t cost more than $3.35. While you shouldn’t go out of your way for any of the food, dishes like kung pao shrimp, beef noodle soup, and curry chicken and dumplings go great with whatever caffeinated beverage you choose.
