Don’t Skip the Cafe Lavender at Phinista
Beautiful boba teas, cone-shaped crepes, and Vietnamese-style coffees are all on the menu at the new cafe Phinista. It’s named for the type of coffee filter used to craft the signature java drinks, which could be best described as a hybrid pour-over/French press. The phin results in a rich, robust cup of espresso or coffee—just take a sip to taste the proof for yourself.
Savor a classic cup of cold-brew coffee. Even if you order it black, patrons say it tastes almost like it’s been sweetened—no bitterness, and subtle hints of caramel. You can also order a specialty iced beverage, like the cafe lavender, which emanates a rich scent and flavor. If you prefer tea, try the dragonfruit or lemonade boba teas. And for an added boost of sweetness, grab a cone-shaped crepe stuffed with fresh fruit.
