Great hang-out for those long summer evenings! Their "concrete" frozen yogurt is to (almost) die for!

Seems a local favourite and very reasonable, queues of cars and people alike, we tried a few flavours including a concrete block with raspberry and strawberries and that was delicious, if you try a concrete block, 1 is enough for 2 even 3 people
