Just about a mile from campus on Southwest Blvd, a new tea, smoothie, boba and snack shop opened up called Quickly.
It’s more than just any average tea shop. It has every kind of smoothie, shake and tea flavor a student could ask for, and for a great price as well.
When one enters the door, there are four TV screens on the wall. Two with music videos of recent pop songs and two with photos the menu.
All the chairs and tables are orange and white, making the store look bright and welcoming. There are balloons hanging up by the register, and a constant line throughout the day.
On the wall to the left you’ll see all the different options of tea flavors, smoothies, shakes and snacks offered.
There’s also the option to get add-ins with a drink such as boba, aloe vera or jellies.
For food options, Quickly has popcorn chicken, fries, fried shrimp, tater tots and waffles.
Most items on the menu range from $2 to $5, making a great deal for students who may be on a tighter budget to get a nice sweet treat or a good tasting tea.
“Quickly opened on March 26, and we would love to get students to come in,” said Austin Le, a Quickly employee. “Something students may not know is that if you show your student ID at the register, you can check out a board game.”
Behind the register there are piles of board games that can be checked out by any Sonoma State University student. All students have to do is give them their ID to keep while they play the game.
While looking at the menu, it can seem a little confusing or intimidating, since there are so many options. It can be hard to decide what to get, but the workers are very willing to help you decide.
I ordered the taro iced tea with boba, and personally loved it. Their was a littletoo much boba, that I thought overtook the drink, but it was a perfect mix of sweet and tart that went perfectly with the Boba.
Boba, aloe vera and tea can be an acquired taste that not everybody likes, but Quickly gives so many options that even if you dislike your drink, there are hundreds more you could try.
Along with their teas, they have M&M, Oreo, Reese’s and Snickers shakes to appeal to all different kinds of taste buds and chocolate addicts.
This place is great for Sonoma State students because it’s accessible to walk or drive to, and the store is a great place to hang out in.
There are so many options to appeal to all different people, and also the opportunity to try a lot of new things.
Quickly has stores all over the world, and is known for it’s Taiwanese bubble tea andAsian dessert and snacks.
They are open weekdays from 11:30 a.m to 10:30 p.m and weekends from 12:00 p.m to 10:30 p.m.
