Charming Tea House
Cha-An Tea House5
Why locals love it
It's a cozy nook known for its extensive list of teas and delicious desserts, such as the black sesame creme brullee and red bean toast with sake ice cream. The menu also also offers savory a la carte food options and prix fixe lunch sets.
Why you should visit it
Cha-An's friendly staff and warm ambiance offer a welcome escape from busy New York life, without all the rush of most restaurants and cafes.Their authentic Japanese desserts are light and not too sweet (we recommend ordering the dessert sampler to try a few).
To avoid waiting for a table, go on weekday afternoons when it tends to quieter. And be sure to bring cash!
