Great pearls of tapioca! Would you trade your Starbucks coffee for some milk tea? Chatime Atlantic is hoping so. The smoothie and juice bar is opening this Saturday, April 9, at 1480 Brenton Street, the spacious ground-floor digs that once upon a time housed Dio Mio ice cream shop, another purveyor of cold treats. Owned by La Kaffa International, a Taiwanese food company that operates more than 1,000 locations in about 26 different countries around the world, this Chatime outlet joins the growing ranks of Halifax’s bubble tea merchants. Halifax was chosen for the newest location because it’s “a great city lifestyle with all the universities and young professionals,” says Chatime accountant John Yuan. “A big coffee and tea culture.”
