The one word that best describes this place is "atmosphere." At the front, it feels like you're at a friend's house. Sit on a couch, play some video games, jam on a guitar or piano, grab a book. Then towards the back, it feels like a cafe in an art museum. The staff is also extremely friendly, and they make seriously good drinks. If I had the money, I'd go here every day.

The Boba House is a classic, university hangout that serves specialty smoothies and sweets. The smoothies are popularly known for the accompanying tapioca balls referred to as boba at their bottoms. The choice is yours whether you'd like to keep them in there or not. A unique variation to ice and milk is LASSI yogurt. Different, but very good. The atmosphere is artistic, laid-back, and open. Come to sit on the couches and drink one of many flavors etched across their menu boards. Local artists are elected to have their artwork hung upon the Boba House walls. A local Book-Swap Shelf lends the place to bibliophiles as much as musicians with its stage and gamers with its video game set-up. Occasionally, the establishment holds gaming tournaments: card, video, and board games. In addition, open mic nights, local comic stand-ups, poetry readings, and local bands. a troupe of improv performers is known to go every now and then throughout the week to perform for customers on their stage. It's definitely a place for those in the city of Tampa to experience if one enjoys a good smoothie and some art. Suggestion from their Menu: M.V.P. with LASSI and Extra-Boba (if you like the Boba) Pika-Pika-Chu

The Boba House is a cozy and very interesting place to hang out and enjoy a variety of Boba flavors. Their selection of flavors includes tens of originals, and everyone working there is friendly and helpful.

The blended drinks are good, but overpriced. My drink has been made wrong on multiple occasions, and employees always have an attitude when asked to remake the correct drink. I would not recommend this place. There are much better boba/tea places in the area.

I am sorry you had a bad experience. I realize that at times mistakes happen, though I cant explain why it always happens to you. For that we can only apologize. As far as our employees go, I can assure you that something very terribly wrong must have happened on multiple occasions with you for the staff we currently have excel in their customer service skills and are all seasoned professionals with years of experience in the service industry. I have never had a more positive and eager crew and if something like this is happening on a regular basis to you I need to know more details. I would encourage you to leave me your contact information the next time, if there is a next time, so i can get to the bottom of it. Your input would be invaluable in helping identify any personnel problem.

Great place to meet people and study. Usually not busy midday. Great boba drinks too. My favorite is the Captain Crunch which is not on the menu.

This place has the BEST tea I've had. The cookies and cream is my go to drink. The inside is super inviting, there's a bunch of comfy chairs and people usually are playing video games on the tvs. On certain nights they have open mic nights for poetry reading and singing. Love the atmosphere and the tea :)

A unique atmosphere with delicious boba tea is a winning combination in my book! It was very quiet, although my visit was during off hours as far as I am aware. Definitely would recommend.
