Frappe Bliss

Really wanted to try Frappe Bliss before I left Canada, and I was finally able to on my last night! They close about 15 minutes earlier than the food court closes, so be sure to place your order ... read more
early! The price is pretty decent, but I feel that the prices for the toppings are way too expensive. They have your flavors of shaved snow for $3/$4. You can add on different toppings for an extra $1 each, I believe. They also have set shaved ice desserts, but I was more interested in the shaved snow! I ordered a milk and a mango shaved snow. The girl gave us a lot, and we were also able to add our own amount of condensed milk to it. A couple before me ordered three shaved snows, and they used up more than half of the bottle of condensed milk in their snows! The girl helped add the milk, but it wasn't enough so we had to come back for more. The snows were very finely shaved and very light in my mouth the minute I ate it. It completely melted away. However, the milk didn't have much flavor, and because I didn't have any additional toppings, it was quite plain. The mango was a little better, but honestly, I have had better in California. I prefer them to have a set menu of shaved snow with ingredients that go well together. Other than that, the snow was good, but nothing special.

Childrens Museum at La Habra

I took my 2 1/2 yr old son here and he loved it.Admission is $8 each (under 2 yrs is free)If you're a La Habra resident you get a discount. Walking to the entrance you see some dinosaur sculptures and ... read more
topiary. Very colorful and really nice photo op. They had six or seven rooms with different themes.He loved the room with an OCTD bus, grocery & carousel. He got to sit in the drivers seat of the bus and pretend to drive it. He also liked the mini grocery cart and shopping. He also enjoyed the model train room. He got to press some button that made things move or light up all around the exhibit. The model trains went around for about a minute, but you have to wait 10 minutes for it to go around again. Boo. Waiting is no fun. They had some real trains outside & we were able to go into one of the caboose. Only one though. They have a schedule for this one, so look for the posted time this is available. They had a theater room. Costumes were available, but not for a 2 yr old. The fire fighter suits were for my size, not kids. Didn't get that at all. They have a control room with lots of buttons w/ cool sounds. He enjoyed that. The first room you go to has a car w/ fueling options, a archeological exhibit, a water exhibit (shower, toilet & sink), a kitchen appliance area and a couple of dinosaur. A lot going on in this room. LolPlay room was a fun place for him. Plenty of things to do here. Some rooms were questionable to me. An Egypt room? w/ a life size crocodile? and a mini mummy? It was more scary to my son than entertaining. Another questionable room is the Nature Walk room. It's a room with real life stuffed animals. Scared him too. Tip: carousel operates every half hour. They make an announcement for it. Except for 2 exhibits, my son enjoyed his stay here (2 hrs). He did not want to leave. But he was tired from running all over. I would give this place 3 stars because some exhibits were not thought out properly in my opinion. And they crammed 3 or 4 exhibits in a few of the rooms. But, my son really had a great time. And isn't that why we came here for. (plus 1 Star)I'll definitely be back.

I had one of the best ice cream flavors here the last time I visited. It was one of their seasonal specials - Tillamook cheddar cheese and apple, something like that. It was a super combination of ... read more
savory (cheese) and sweet (apple) and it rocked my world. Lines are usually long at Salt & Straw, but SO worth the wait because it moves fast also. It's pretty much the equivalent to Seattle's Molly Moon's ice creamery.

I love Asha Tea House! Unlike the Quicklys and TapExes in the world, Asha uses real tea and real milk in their drinks, none of that powdered dairy substitute stuff. They go beyond boba drinks and sell ... read more
loose leaf tea, offering tea tastings to their customers and tea accouterments to purchase. I especially love that they keep a little area with frequent buyer cards for all customers so I don't have to carry yet another loyalty card in my wallet. How thoughtful.

almost every day. He is now too old to engage in conversation, but he refuses to stay at home. _____ was one of the original to start this museum. It is very small, but effective. They promote tolerance and give many tours to school children. The video in the conference room shows priceless interviews of various Holocaust survivors that relocated to Texas. The museum has a great map in the front entry to show where each concentration camp was located. The museum’s main mission seems to be to reach Dallas children with the message of tolerance.
