“Nada Tea & Coffee House” was named after the Nada district of City of Kobe, Japan, famous for sake-brewing using pure spring water from Mt. Rokko (called Miyamizu, water of shrine).

We were inspired by a popular local café in the city where coffee is brewed with the water of Nada.


Our hope is to offer a harmonious blend of exceptional beverages, foods, and service in a sleek and comfortable setting. We look forward to having you as our customers.


Inside our Teahouse


The interior design is meant to enhance the peaceful time at the teahouse. With an imaginative combination of materials, such as bamboo and aluminum, an internationally renowned architect, Douglas Garofalo, created an inviting and spiritual atmosphere.  We were deeply saddened by the news that Mr. Garofalo passed away on July 31, 2011 (obituary here).  His solo exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006 showcased the vast range of his innovative works, and we are proud of his spirit living with us at Nada.  Our teahouse enforces the Zen principle of simplicity – Fusion of Japanese traditional teahouse and Italian contemporary living room.


Nada Tea & Coffee House has been introduced by Chicago Sun Times, and magazines such as Bon Appétit and Conscious Choice.

Enjoy a soothing experience with a variety of green tea, black tea, and coffee of highest quality.  Our baked items, including muffins, scones and sandwiches, will create the taste of harmony.
