Have you been to a place where the motto is “where every day is a good day?” How lovely is that by the way? Good Day Cafe represents the idea of “fun, friendly and affordable” exactly what we’d like in any restaurant or boba cafe. Located in Myrtle Beach (anyone visiting here soon?), Good Day Cafe serves up many delicious flavors of boba for its residents and visitors.
Favorites here are usually black milk tea or taro milk tea. They don’t have much unique flavors as you’d expect from bigger franchises like Sharetea or Vivi Bubble Tea but if you need that boba fix, this is a great place to start.
They even have amazing food here too! Grab some boba and pair it with delicious lobster rolls, salads or even grilled cheese sandwiches.
Are you residing or visiting Greenville, SC anytime soon? Be sure to take a detour and try out Ocha Tea Bar if you have a chance! The biggest thing you’ll notice here is their amazingly vibrant green decor, but don’t shy away from their bubble tea obviously. With a fair amount of great reviews from many people around the area, Ocha Tea Bar remains one of the best.
Some flavors we been recommended to try were jasmine milk tea and Thai milk tea (you know we had to pick Thai milk tea with boba pearls). And we were happy we made that choice! The Thai milk tea is of course very milky, smoothe and full of flavor! It’s not highly sweetened like many other boba cafes make their Thai milk tea, here you’ll be able to taste the depth of the black tea.
Oh and we didn’t forget, the tapioca pearls are cooked correctly here too! It has the right amount of bounce and chew with every bite, exactly what we look for in a great boba pearl texture.
You’ll like this one! If you’re a big fan of bubble tea (which we’re sure you are as you are here reading this article right now) and also a big fan of some acai bowls or fruits, you’re in luck! Here at The Corner Blend (can we take a moment to appreciate how cool this name is), you’ll find a really big variety of delicious boba flavors and smoothie bowls to choose from.
Here’s some of the best bubble tea flavors here:
- Almond milk tea
- Lychee milk tea
- Taro milk tea
- Thai milk tea
And if you’re curious, we’ll let you know about their smoothie bowls too, just in case you wanted to see what they have on their menu. We’re here to help you as much as possible anyways right? Some popular acai bowls or smoothie bowls are brazilian crush, blue de ba dee and pretty in pitaya! See their full menu on their site if you want the full descriptions of the flavor profile.
You can’t pass up rolled ice cream and bubble tea right? Great, then you’ll have to visit this place called Sweet Ice in Myrtle Beach, SC. They’re known for serving up really delicious rolled ice cream such as s’mores flavors, key lime pie, cookies and cream and more! As for their boba or bubble tea you can find some deliciousness in their honeydew bubble tea, Thai bubble tea or strawberry bubble tea… with boba pearls of course!
So, if you’ve had a long day on the beach in the hot summer day (we know you definitely did) come by here to cool down with ice cream. And then leave with a bubble tea to keep you cool as you walk back outside in the scorching heat.
This is off topic but, for those that are from South Carolina, this place tends to get really hot in the summer doesn’t it? Let us know in the comments below, let’s start a conversation!

Anyone here a fan of sushi? Anyone a fan of rice? That’s a yes from our whole team (in case you’re wondering). If you’re in the same boat then this place is just right for you. Order up some of your favorite poke dishes or entrees like salmon poke bowls or tuna poke bowls (our favorite) with your favorite boba drink.

A fusion of tea sounds pretty good right? Like many of our best boba places articles (see more here) we save the best for last. And of course, Tea Fusion is the next one up! Serving up delicious boba, milk tea or bubble tea… you’ll leave this place very satisfied. Why? Because they also serve up some really delicious snacks and food that go perfectly with your boba tea.
We’re talking foods that pair with boba like banh mi sandwiches, popcorn chicken, popcorn shrimp, fried calamari, fried tofu, fries, edamames you name it! We think the best pairing would have to be a banh mi with a side of popcorn chicken and one of these flavors of boba.
- Taro bubble tea
- Oreo cookie bubble tea
- Mango bubble tea
- Avocado bubble tea
Anyone of those flavors and a banh mi sandwich sounds like a great afternoon. If you’re not convinced yet, let us add that they have over 600 really positive reviews. Seriously, the more you read them the more you want to just go and grab some food and boba. #guilty
