This week’s restaurant is Bubblebee, which is found at 1005 Princess Anne St on the 2nd floor. Bubblebee specializes in drinks and desserts. Even with its limited selection, it is still a big hit among students here at SHS. Senior Samuel Fuller says, “It’s very clean, the workers are friendly, and the drinks are good.”

 

Bubblebee is a perfect place to study. It is a very quiet and relaxing place to catch up on work. Instrumental music often plays in the background. There is plenty of seating, not to mention great photo spots, which are placed around the 2nd floor. There is a cutesy seating area with 2 armchairs in front of a white neon sign that says, “Love to bee yours.” There are similar photo areas by the ordering counter. One of which has a sign that says “Hey Honey!” and another features a metal outline of two people at a coffee shop, which is behind a yellow shopping cart of decorative ball pit balls.

 

The employees also add to the calm atmosphere. They are very nice and are happy to help with any questions. As an indecisive customer, I took a while to order, but the workers were sure to answer all of my questions with a smile.

 

Their main items are of course their bubble teas. They also have Bee “Snow,” which is sort of like a slushie and has a cheese cap on top. The cheese cap is sweet and is cream cheese based, but drinks can be ordered without it upon request. They also have a wide spread of milk tea, fresh fruit green tea (Bee Fresh on the menu), brewed tea, yogurt drinks, coffee, and smoothies (Bee Loved on the menu). They even have hot chocolate and sparkling beverages.

 

These drinks range from $5 to $7.25, which is a very moderate price. However, there are additional charges for certain alterations of the drink. Senior Ise Mason says, “Literally adding anything is a dollar. I should not be supercharged for my lactose intolerance.” 

 

They also sell desserts, which cost around $5, but are not featured on the online menu. The cakes are rather small, so it is hard to say if they are worth the price.

 

I ordered the Orange Strawberry Fruit Tea with less ice and the Hazelnut Mocha Cake. Together they cost $11.91, including tax. The tea hits your tongue with an explosion of fruit and is extremely refreshing. However, after a few sips the drink begins to leave a bitter after taste. The cake was rather average, and considering its size I would not say this particular dessert was worth the price. I have also previously tried the Brown Sugar Milk Tea, which was great. The flavor was just right and the boba at the bottom, although rather chewy, added a nice touch to balance out the sweetness.

 

If you ever want to go downtown for a study session or to take some Instagram pictures, head to Bubblebee and try a new drink while you’re at it!
