Jenjon’s Café, conveniently located near the Logan campus, has become a hit among teens that wants a good meal for a cheaper price offered at the popular and overcrowded Tapioca Express.
Jenjon’s Cafe, though small for a restaurant, seem to provide more room than Tapioca because barely anyone goes there. The service by these workers is speedy and given with a friendly smile.
When entering the café, they greet you and give you a menu where you can order from a variety of foods such as sandwiches, burgers, salads, and other favorites like hot wings. With that order, you can buy smoothies, coffee, milk tea and other drinks.
A personal favorite of mine when I go there is their cheeseburger and passion fruit smoothie. Their cheeseburger can be bought for the price of $3.99 and the smoothie for $3.25, totaling my meal to $7.24.
The same meal, substituting their spicy chicken for the cheeseburger, would have cost somewhere closer to $10. Sure, the difference is only a few dollars more for Tap. But with regular visitors, those few dollars could amount to quite a sum over time.
Though a real comparison between Jenjon’s Café and Tapioca Express cannot be done with their food, their drinks could be compared.
The price range of Tapioca’s drinks range from $3.75 to $4.25. These same drinks are available at Jenjon’s Café for a much cheaper price. Jenjon’s Café sells slushy for the mere price of $2.25, plus tax.
Though Jenjon’s Café might not have all the same flavors Tapioca has, it does make up for it by having flavors that Tap does not have, like star fruit slushy and honeydew juice.
Jenjon’s Café should be praised for its low prices and high-quality food. If you’re around the area, Jenjon’s Café is worth a visit.
