“Losing to the Competition”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Bali's is a self serve frozen yogurt place with good frozen yogurt. It is not keeping up with nearby competition, however. Yogurt Creations is just around the corner, with its sparkling new interior, topping containers that stay open with magnets (you don't have to hold them open while serving) and a lot more healthy fresh fruit toppings. It is a little more expensive, but I think worth the difference.

“Great price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

In the heart of SLO's small downtown, Balis is an inexpensive, and easy dessert place. Kids love the variety of toppings, although some of the toppings are not always fresh. I once had crumbled heath bar that tasted stale. Otherwise it is a solid frozen yogurt destination. The hours make it a nice late night snack option and the staff is usually friendly. The best part other than the price is the selection. I would recommend it over all others in SLO.

“Special treat and great place for the kids...across the street from Apple Store”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Always a destination when we visit the grandkids in SLO. Grandson likes to eat yogurt sitting in Bali's while using the WiFi connection from the Apple store just across the street.

Good selection of flavors and toppings.

Only NEGATIVE is that it can be VERY CROWDED and hard to find a place to sit depending on the weather and the number of Cal Poly students in town. They can congregate at Bali's. Often people sitting in the entry area from the sidewalk.

Price seemed reasonable to me having been going there for many years.

“You'll Never Find Self Serve Froyo this cheap.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great selection and so cheap. You will not be disappointed. I'd imagine this place probably gets really busy busy in the summer but worth it.

“Always yummy... consistently good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We make it a point to top off our Farmer's Market evenings (Thursday nights in SLO) by getting a yogurt from Bali's. Always good and the pricing is very reasonable. Seating inside and out, and located right in the middle of shopping.
