“Fun original place worth a stop!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

My boyfriend and I stopped here for frozen yogurt. This is the type of place that people need to visit. Not a chain. Thoughtful and well decorated interior. A fun place to sit and chill while eating your frozen yogurt. Helpful staff. Yummy yogurt. Fresh toppings. Not cheap and not homemade but I would definitely go back. A welcome break from the norm in terms of frozen yogurt places.

“Frozen in Time - Fresh Face, Fantastic Flavor!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

First, and foremost, phenomenal product! I, unfortunately, am lactose intolerant and am always thrilled when I can find nondairy options. Totally enjoyed the "radsberry" sorbet (also had an option for orange)! Topped it with very fresh raspberries and sliced almonds - the perfect dessert! My husband opted for the coconut frozen yogurt and topped it with fresh strawberries. He gave it a big thumbs up (great for someone who will not eat regular yogurt). What an awesome new vacation find for us! We had read rave reviews and can validate that they weren't written by family and friends of the Surfin' Spoon staff. This place is REALLY "the one" to beat. The interior is decorated beautifully, so inviting. The staff could not be more outgoing and helpful. I inquired as to why there are coins stuck in the ceiling and found that this had been done in the original establishment so they carried on this tradition. What makes it so lovely is that in the winter, the wood in the ceiling contracts, dropping the coins, which are then donated to the Surfing for Autism program. http://www.surfingforautism.org/ This place is a win/win and I truly hope that everyone supports this local shop as they support a great cause. Don't miss a visit!

“Yewww”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Surfin Spoon is my favorite frozen yogurt joint in the world... so far :) I love the chill atmosphere of the place and the employees are always so nice. The little house is always packed in the summer and they keep the restaurant clean even though people are always coming in in their wetsuits and bathing suits. The frozen yogurt is really good and the toppings are fresh. My favorite would have to be Cray Cray Coconut. The establishment is owned by the professional surfer Jesse Hines and his wife Whitney so there is lots of surfing memorabilia within the four little walls.

This is a self serve frozen yogurt place with a large variety of flavors and toppings. It is very clean and the staff is super friendly. I will definitely be back for seconds.
