Those from Morgantown and even those who attend WVU may or may not know about Lavender Cafe. Known or not, this is really truly a different and authentic place. One not so easy to come by in Morgantown.
Located off of Beechurst Avenue, the cafe has gained popularity since their opening in 2008 which has offered fresh Taiwanese food along with everyday dishes since the very first day.
The extensive menu for the latest drink craze, bubble tea is another thing that brings people through the door. Whether you order online or go into the restaurant to enjoy the asian inspired ambiance, you’re almost guaranteed a great experience from the high reviews online and even chatting to locals who go there regularly.
Even those who may not like Taiwanese food or think they don’t like it, Tye Nave says, “just try it, I did!” Nave, originally from Pittsburgh, PA was in town visiting a friend when his friend “dragged” him to her favorite food spot in Morgantown. Nave who says he used to typically stick to the average american food, gave it a try and after moving to, and now living in San Francisco, California, he says he wishes there was one in there too!
And let’s be honest, he’s not the only one who seems to love it, so do the locals!
