Chiya Chai Cafe


Chiya Chai Cafe is Ready to Show You What Real Chai Tastes Like

Tired of those over-sugared Starbucks lattes?  Family-owned Chiya Chai Cafe has brought a little bit of Nepal to Logan Square.  The cafe sports over 150 spicy chai combinations created with tea, spices, and milk.  Choose a base tea, flavor, and milk (options include dairy-free coconut and almond milk) to create a custom drink.  Black, green matcha, and caffeine-free Roobios teas paired with diverse spices give your drink as much kick as you like.  With summer on the way and warmer weather already coming to the city, you can enjoy your favorite personalized drink over ice.

Tea isn’t the only thing owners Swadesh and Saujanya Shrestha brought from Nepal.  Head to The Backroom for dinner after 5pm to enjoy authentic Nepalese and Indian foods like curry and dumplings.  Plenty of vegan and gluten-free options make this cafe a tasty option for everyone!  If you’re in the mood for something stronger than chai, swing by the cafe between 3pm and 6pm Tuesday-Friday for Happy Hour.  All cocktails, beers, and wines are $2 off, and so are select appetizers.

Hours: 7am-10pm Tuesday-Friday

9am-10pm Saturdays and Sundays.

Location: 2770 N. Milwaukee Ave.
