A popular stop for delicious milk tea and house-made toppings, Boba Guys is easily accessible from Main Quad with a 25-minute walk, 15-minute Marguerite trip, or 7-minute bike ride. Located at Town & Country Village on El Camino Real, on the same journey you can pick up Trader Joe’s groceries for those late nights, purchase pints at Tin Pot Creamery, (window) shop at high-end boutiques, and even visit the UPS store.
