“Yummy flavors, lots of fun for kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We loved that they were open after dinner time in the middle of winter. They have lots of new and classic flavors, very yummy!

“First time here - really impressed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Our teenage daughter asked us to stop in for ice cream when we were in the area. I haven't ever been to a place like this and I can only say that we wish it were closer to home! It's a serve yourself place and you can get whatever yogurt and toppings you want in your dish and they charge by weight. I had the frozen custard and it was amazing. Toppings include different candies and cereals, all different fruits and high end syrups and of course many chocolate options. You can put a little divider in your dish and make 3 completely different dishes if you want to have some variety. I was super excited that they had heath bars and Capn Crunch cereal. Everyone was happy with their ice cream and had fun making it. The owner was very friendly as was the staff and the atmosphere was something that reminded me of Key West. We agreed that going here in the winter would make us feel better when it's icky out and we are sick of Michigan. We will definitely go again! Don't miss out on this little treasure. It is right in downtown Rochester and we parked on the street and paid the meter fee. There is other parking close by as well.

“Your typical fro-yo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Good place right downtown to get some self serve frozen yogurt. Great that you can pile on as many toppings as you'd like, but be careful! It's priced by weight. One time we ended up spending wayyyy too much.

“Lots of Choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

There are so many choices of both frozen yogurt and toppings in this shop - any topping you could want! If you are a topping lover, it could get a bit pricey since price is determined by weight. It seems each time I go in there is a new flavor of yogurt as well. You can eat there or you can take the treat to go! The store is very clean and every time I have been in, there has been a staff member cleaning tables or making sure that the topping area was clean and organized! A nice treat on a night downtown!

“Not just yogurt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The name suggests it only sells yogurt, but there are two flavors of custard offered. Several kinds of add ons from fruit, sauces, etc. Walls are painted in mural. Eat in or take out.
