Why so many in Mountain View but none in Palo Alto? Our kids would much rather have ice tea than ice cream or soda. [Portion removed.]

Never been to Living Hut. Do they mind if you order ice tea alone and take a table to drink it?

If you go to Ocha, don't miss their snacks, like the green beans or the sweet potato fries. Delicious! It's the only time my kid likes green beans.
