A tea shop with all the perks of your favorite coffee shop (but without the coffee), Remedy’s awesome variety of premium hot and cold teas make it a little easier to cut back on the java.
Owned and run by two friendly sisters, recent college grads and tea lovers Kristen and Courtney, the atmosphere is laid-back and comfortable and they never pressure you to order or leave.
Remedy also serves tea lattes and blended tea drinks they call mar-tea-nis. A detailed descriptive menu explains the health benefits and caffeine levels of each tea; it’s so convincing you might just become a tea convert.
A small but tasty selection of lunch fare from other vendors is available, along with delicious muffins, bagels, and other tempting sweet treats. Free WiFi is available.
