A busy day for Te Amo, Campus North’s new boba café, since hosting a soft opening on Tuesday.

Te Amo Boba Bar Café, a new restaurant in Campus North serving Taiwanese-style bubble tea, iced tea, and fruit freezes, had a soft opening on Tuesday.

The café was so busy on its first day of business that it ran out of boba.

According to owner Mia, who declined to give her last name, Tuesday’s boba shortage was due to the fact that Te Amo makes its boba on the premises and had only prepared six pots of boba. In the two days since opening, Te Amo has had eight pots of boba on standby.

Te Amo purchased the deed to its location in North in May, and the owner attributed the delay in opening to construction work.

Records show that Te Amo failed its initial health inspection on December 18, 2017, but passed shortly afterwards, on December 21.

Te Amo is the final retail establishment to open in North, joining Insomnia Cookies, Timbuk2, Dollop Coffee, and Nella Pizza e Pasta.
