Bubbles and more in the South End

The independent café movement in the South End is truly incredible.  There are so many different places and yet each one is special in its own way. The Buttery has amazing espresso, I love Francesca's wraps and Flour is an all round hit.  You would think that with such a great array, there would be no room for another.  Well, you can think again, because Jaho, the new- ish café which opened about two months ago on Washington street has managed to find its own style and quirk amidst a very competitive neighborhood.
So what makes this place special? The sheer size and range of their coffee and tea list.  It goes from your regular cup of coffee to some very interesting sounding blended drinks like their maple soy chai latte.  They also boast 100 plus varieties of tea and...wait for it...bubble tea!!!!!!!

Three guesses as to what I chose....:) I went for the mango green tea, semi-sweetened with boba.  It was very tasty, however I would have preferred much more boba...apparently they were just in the process of making a new batch.
Jaho also has a great sandwich and salad menu as well as some pretty tasty looking treats. I will be going back in the not too distant future to try some of these guys out. In the meantime, I can't tell you how excited I am to have found a bubble tea fix in the area!


  1. I passed this post on to Ted, and he took his staff there for lunch yesterday!

  2. That's so great Lydia:) And yes, the mango bubble tea was great - what is even greater is that you can choose any kind of tea (from their 100+ variety) and just get them to add boba:)
