Yogiberry



Last date I was here: 06/11/2011

Restaurant: Yogiberry (http://www.yogiberry.com/home.html/)

Location: Cleveland Park

Total Rating: 3.95
Food: 4, Price: 4, Service: 4, Ambience: 3, Accessibility: 5

Summary: Yogiberry is a new trendy fro-yo spot popping up in the DC area. Serving the tangy and sweet refreshing alternative to the traditional ice cream, Yogiberry is fun and affordable. Yogiberry is also customizable by offering original, berry, chocolate and a specialty flavor (green tea when we went) and about 20 different toppings ranging from fruit to chocolate chips to cereals to mochi. Smoothies and shave ice desserts also available. Closest Metro is Cleveland Park.


September 2009: I was so excited to try this place. The set up was a little awkward – but the staff was friendly and allowed us to sample each flavor of the delicious and smooth treat. I only wish more locations existed in the area – yet being directly off the metro station was wonderful! I am glad I picked the original flavor, which allowed me to accessorize as I wish with all the other toppings. The berry that I tasted was too sweet and the green tea was very green tea. I did not sample the chocolate, but imagine I would like it.

October 2009 : We went back again and this time I tried the chocolate. I felt the serving of the yogurt and the toppings were a little more skimpy than the last time I was there, but it was still delicious.

UPDATE: On a hot summer day, we returned to this Yogiberry location for a cool treat and were surprised to find a total makeover with a new self-serve setup. Now offering over 12 different flavors that you can mix and match to your liking, as well as the plethora of toppings, be careful not to get carried away as they now charge $.49 per ounce. Nevertheless, this deal seemed a little better and much more preferable than the original concept. Again, I only wish there were more locations in DC.
