Every week, I treat myself to a tuna fish sandwich with a bubble tea. A little pricey for a student's wallet but it really helps to eat the protein with lots of vegetables. The little place is just right for anyone who wants to enjoy tea, lunch, a light breakfast or a bowl of soup. Parking can be found on... More

The food is so healthy, minimal and delicious. The atmosphere also feels like taking a break and slowing down a bit. The food is also very fresh. I love the front tables more than the tables in the back.

This very affordable café has several vegan options on the menu. I tried the dado wrap. It was quite tasty but could benefit from a nice vegan sauce on the side. Overall there's a nice atmosphere and I was impressed by the incredibly quick service.

The store in Harvard SQ is right across from Starbucks. Support it. It's good food. Even healthy. Low key. Nice people. I think it is a local company. Can get a great lunch there. I live nearby and I am there frequently.

I spent a lot of time at Dado over the last few years and most recently was there 5 days in a row when I needed to leave my house for showings. Freshest bagels around, their multigrain rice bowls/meals are healthy and delicious (though I skim the oil off the dressing bc there is so much) their lintzer tart cookies... More

I was on business and this restaurant adjoined the building I was in. I ordered lunch, the Japanese curry, for about $8.00. What came to me was a tiny plastic container of rice with a few tiny pieces of carrot, potato, and onion, in what I think was just water. Needless to say, I braved the cold to leave the... More

I ordered the spicy ramen noodle. I implicitly told both counter attendants "no mushroom and no scallions. Save both your scallions and mushrooms. When I received my ramen noodle soup I saw both mushroom and scallions so I told the attendants why there were both mushroom and scallions in my soup when I specifically said "no mushroom and no scallions"....

We stopped there for a quick snack and some bubble tea. This place is located right in the square. Lots of choices in the menu for food and beverages. I took the the chai bubble tea which was good. Tasted very average but not bad.

I went to Dado for the first time and enjoyed it. It's not necessarily anything to write home about but it definitely was filling. They have two tables for outdoor seating which is nice when you need a break to go outside. I didn't try them but they have an incredibly extensive tea list if you're lookingf for a quick... More

Dadu tea has an ecpansive menu. A great selection of tea, coffee, salsds, small plates and desserts. I prefer to give my business to independent cafes, and thid wss a very good choice. We enjoyef richly brewed coffee, lovely teas, and tasty baked goods. Great location in the heart of the square.
