"But first boba."

Mount Pleasant—It was bound to happen. One of Vancouver's newer (and definitely hipper) cafes has a decidedly Taiwanese sweet drink twist. Buns + Boba Café, located centrally on East Broadway, takes the simple pleasures of bubble tea drinks and brings a more artisanal style approach.

Unlike most "boba" joints, B+B has a simple, slimmed-down menu of various milk (and non-milk) tea drinks with its own special options for individual personalization from traditional toppings to different milk options.

Full of bright colours and a crisp interior design, the cafe keeps to the all-natural, organic theme with clean lines to complement the dairy-free and vegan-friendly options in addition to gluten-free baked goods made daily spearheaded by owner Katrina Louie.

There's a more upscale, but still very approachable, attitude and atmosphere with loose-leaf organic tea choices, all the usual espresso offerings, and drinks made without the aids of powders, concentrates, or extra additives.

Basically, it's bubble tea for the slightly more health (and possibly image) conscious or typical coffee crowd aiming for natural ingredients and trendy appeal.

With its friendly, central location on the Kingsway and Broadway corridor, Buns + Boba is a perfectly pleasant sweet drink option with a welcoming Asian minimalist decor and pleasing menu. It certainly stands out.
