Dulce Tapioca is a tremendous little spot near First Colony Mall if you're looking for a refreshing pick-me-up or a between-meal snack. Stop in before your shopping spree and get your nutritious and delicious energy in a cup. Their various tapioca and milk tea drinks are common breakfasts or desserts in Southeast Asia, and are quickly becoming a hit in the US.

Otherwise, their regular old iced coffee is marvelous. -Adam Rosen
