This is the perfect place to sit and hang out with friends. They offer board games and wonderful drinks.

Bubble Island is my go-to for late night hangouts with friends. Their space is open and welcoming, with plenty of seating and good music. Bubble tea is a fun, relaxing drink, and Bubble Island reflects that. Also, they are open until 2 am. (Although, if it is a slow night, they will understandably close around 1 or 1:30ish.) As a...

I went in the Bubble to get change for a $5 since the bus stop is right outside and I needed some 1's for the fare, knowing that it might not be possible for them to make change. Clerk 1 said she'd check. She came back from Clerk 2, who said 'No, only if you buy something.' Looking around for... More

We were visiting Michigan State campus and grabbed a couple bubble drinks last weekend. They were good (I got the coconut milk and oreos combo, my son got the strawberry/banana smoothie) but the menu choice is not as big as in most bubble tea places. The place needs to a coat of paint on the walls and could use some... More

Bubble tea may be one of my favorite things in the world. Bubble Island both in E.L. and Ann Arbor are the best places to get bubble tea. I've tried it at other establishments and it is just NOT the same. If you're a newbie, try the fusion (with which ever flavor) with mango stars...it's not as "scary" as the... More

Lots of variety for bubble drinks plus some Japanese snacks and my favorite mochi ice cream! The pink bubble option was a hit with our girls. There are many interesting flavors that they offer for bubble drinks. Oreo anyone?

The drinks taste really good here, and I've racked up a lot of free ones through their frequent buyer program. The only two things are that there isn't as much variety as other places that sell similar drinks and their mochi ice cream seems overpriced to me. But their drinks are good.
