This place is pretty nice, lots of selection on their menu. Good, quick pearl tea and super friendly staff. I also like their card program, you get a free bubble tea for every $25 you put on the card. Only thing, I wouldn't really stay in to drink it, it's a little noisy. Overall nice place, though! :)

I've been to Vera's twice now, once on the Commercial Drive location, and one at the UBC location. My first experience was fine, but the UBC one was absolutely terrible. I ordered a burger with pickle, and by the time it got to me (about a 15 minute wait, which I suppose is normal) the burger itself had a horrible odour, like something had gone bad.
Keep in mind, I'd taken 2 bites out of the burger. I take it up to the till to let them know, and the cashier had the audacity to give me a dirty look and say it smelled fine. If it hadn't been for another employee being kind enough to offer to remake it, I probably would have demanded a refund.
Definitely not returning to that location, it's not worth the hassle or money you pay for a sub-par burger, might as well go to McDonalds.
