LA has a thing for NYC foodie transplants (we’re looking at you Bluestone Lane, Van Leeuwen, and by CHLOE.). But there’s one West Coast shop that’s we’re totally obsessed with.
Say hello to Cha Cha Matcha, a charming, pink-hued cafe in WeHo and Venice that’s entirely dedicated to—you guessed it—matcha.
Cha Cha’s backstory is even more millennial than the menu. Two NYU business grads fell in love with matcha on a trip to Japan and brought back some tea powder to NYC. With a little recipe testing and a lot of ambition, they created the matcha wonderland we now know as Cha Cha Matcha.
A tea shop dotted with puns and palm trees on a pink and green palette, it’s no surprise the tropical-themed paradise was lured to the streets of LA. Not to mention its vintage retro feel and ’90s rap music blasting in the background. Nothing like a caffeine boost with a little Dr. Dre to get you in a good mood, right?
Cha Cha Matcha isn’t just fun to say; it also has the matcha tea game on lock. Their high-quality matcha is sourced straight from Japan, and the not-too-sweet flavor tastes just as good as it looks.
The menu is simple but features everything from classic drinks like a matcha latte to more unique concoctions like their seasonal Blue Drink made with collagen, blue algae, lavender honey, and milk.
Non-dairy? No problem. Cha Cha Matcha also offers a list of dairy-free options that’s so extensive (think almond, hemp, soy, macadamia, cashew, coconut, and more) you may need to pause before committing to an order. But no matter what you go for, you can expect a colorful creation made with good-for-you ingredients that you won’t be able to stop sipping.
Though, Cha Cha Matcha isn’t just about delicious matcha drinks. They also whip up a mean selection of healthy bites like avocado or almond butter toast, along with sweet treats like fresh-baked matcha donuts (both gluten-free and vegan!). And like any good tea shop nowadays, there’s also soft serve.
