dado’s Business Philosophy
dado’s foremost business philosophy is to improve the quality of life of others.  We seek to offer only high quality food and beverages—high qrade loose teas, organic fair trade coffee, organic and fresh ingredients—that will contribute to the well being of our valued customers and staff.  We choose to do business with responsible vendors.  We reinvest into the community in which we operate by donating to local charities.  We seek to donate to charities that improve the lives of small children.

 dado believes that being mindful of our actions and non-actions and its effect on the environment is an integral part of improving the lives of others.  We strongly encourage our customers to bring in their own travel mug—there is a 20¢ discount.  We recycle, we try to minimize waste, and seek to compost whenever possible. 

dado believes in creating a warm comfortable space where friends and family members can gather to enjoy one another’s company. 


What does dado mean?
dado means the way of tea or tea ceremony.  This is a literal translation of the Chinese characters 茶道.  dado is the Korean pronunciation of these two Chinese characters.  In Chinese it is pronounced as chādào and chado in Japanese.
