I was craving a grilled cheese sandwich when someone told me the best ones are here at Miro Tea. They are in the cold case but grilled fresh while you wait. Have them add some slices of tomato and you'll be in sandwich heaven ~ !!! Love the iced green tea, too ~ !!!

We came for tea and a snack (fabulous Harvest loaf and cinnamon carrot loaf) with elegant teapots on tealight warmers - and stayed for lunch of grilled cheese and crepes. Soothing music, fun table set ups with a mix of comfy chairs and window corner benches and stools. Come for conversation, catch up on email, do some homework or reading,... More

A local gem in the heart of historic Ballard where you can have your own pot of tea and enjoy a great book or study! With a great patio and a beautiful inside, this is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy time alone or with friends. Tip: Sample the teas of the day at the front to figure out... More

I used to frequent Miro back when I lived in Seattle and was consistently impressed with the service, the tea, and the crepes. The staff was always friendly and helpful. I still have a big bag of miro lapsang souchong that I pull out when the mood strikes for a little something smokey.

They have an excellent selection of teas. They also offer a good variety of food items. The space is quiet and very good for conservation. All-in-all a good refuge to catch your breath and enjoy some quiet time.

Huge selection of various teas. They also offer several kinds of sandwiches and crepes. I was initially disappointed when I ordered a sandwich to see the the waitress reaching into a refrigerated bin for a premade sandwich only to find they were out of the sandwich I wanted. I switched my order to a crepe...Made with gluten free batter...it was... More

This was my first time here and it is definitely unique. Lots of different tea to choose from and even though I am a Black Tea enthusiast I decided to try their Black Tea Latte with Hemp Milk. Very different flavor then what I expected, earthy, creamy and really good. There were lots of people having lunch as well as... More

While at the Ballard Farmers Market we stopped in for a snack and iced tea. This little restaurant makes the most amazing iced tea. The Mojito Green Iced Tea is to die for. Lime juice, green tea and mint leaves. Could drink it all day long. VERY busy on Farmers Market day ... be prepared for lots of foot traffic.... More

If someone says they don't like tea--take them to Miro. They have an entire book of teas and the staff is very knowledgeable. They make tea drinks that don't taste anything like tea i.e. lemonade with ice tea, green tea lattes, mojito ice teas (yum!) and chai tea. They have a small menu of food such as crepes, grilled sandwiches... More

Stopped by for some tea with my family and really enjoyed Miro. They have tasty snacks too. My son got a gluten free cookie which was delish! Plenty of room inside and out to sit and chat. I would highly recommend Miro if you are in Ballard.
