It’s late and suffering from mental fatigue after a massive amount of studying, one question arises in the typical college student’s mind; “what is open for me to get some food right now?”
Usually, they are forced to result to fast food but a new door has opened in Downtown Fullerton that is providing high quality food and drinks, until the early-morning hours.
After a highly successful run at their first location in Artesia, Cha2o has decided to expand their hours and come to Fullerton.
There is a nice dine-in area inside but there is also the to-go area for customers just looking to get one of Cha2o’s countless drink choices.
The drinks range anywhere from normal milk tea to the bikini peach smoothie, which is a peach smoothie with strawberry swirls and strawberry bits topped with seasonal fruit.
The Laughing Buddha is pineapple green tea with orange juice and bits of pineapple.
All drinks also have available add ons. The add ons can be as simple as boba or as wild as aloe vera. The menu seems to never end.
Even though they are gourmet, the drinks remain very affordable. Most drinks stay within the $3-$4 range, although they can be close to $6 when you get up into the 32 ounce range.
On the food side, the restaurant caters to people looking for a full on meal, or a couple just coming in looking for a late-night dessert after a date night.
The rice dish is pineapple fried rice served in a hollowed out pineapple. They leave a little bit of the pineapple at the bottom so that the customer gets a little bit of pineapple after everything.
The food is also very affordable. There is a wide range of appetizers, from Asian tacos to tornado potatoes that are mainly in the $4 range but some are as much as $6 and some are only $2. The main courses are all under $10.
The location is perfect for a new business. It is right on the corner of Harbor and Commonwealth so they will not need to do much advertising.
Anybody walking through Downtown Fullerton is bound to see it and if they stop in once, chances are they will continue to come back.
The restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 1 a.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m.
