After moving to Chicago, the owners of Cassava Cafe couldn't find any bubble tea outside of Chinatown. So banking on the fact that others would share their love of this Taiwanese treat, they opened Cassava Cafe. The café, which is named after the plant that produces tapioca "bubbles," whips up a variety of fruit-flavored bubble, or boba, teas. These drinks are made without powders or artificial syrups, and the owners experimented with recipes until their bubbles achieved the perfect degree of sweetness and chewiness. In addition to bubble tea, Cassava also serves a variety of coffees sourced from Metropolis Coffee Company, plus sandwiches and salads for customers who want to chew on something besides tapioca balls.
