“The BEST frozen yogurt”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

If you haven't tried this place, make sure you do. The yogurt is tart, not overly sweetened like most places. The toppings are fresh (fruit) and diverse (brownie bites, granola). Adults and kids alike will love this place.

“fabulous frozen yogurt, fun stop on date night”
Reviewed 1 October 2010

This small quirky storefront is easy to miss. It's on the north side of Davis Street about 1/3 block west of Sherman Ave. The giveaway, though, is the long line that frequently forms to place an order. Often it's 10-15 people deep during the peak evening hours. You won't have to wait very long as the line moves pretty quickly with the simple menu. It's usually easier to get in at lunch time.

I highly recommend the pomegranate frozen yogurt. There are always several other flavors available, but this one is the best. It's quite unusual and absolutely delicious. You can't go wrong with it.

One thing that i really like about the frozen yogurts here is that they are NOT very sweet, if at all. It's not like ice cream or frozen custard, which are almost always really sweet. These have more complex flavors. Definitely more interesting than ice cream.

They will add fruit toppings such as blackberries, raspberries, etc. on request for a small additional charge. They also have sweet stuff for toppings, also as an extra charge, if you want it.

There are two or three very small tables in here that could seat four, possibly six, people, but this is primarily a take-out place. There's just not enough room to really sit and relax comfortably in there, particularly during busy times when the space is already maxed out, and even if there were, the tables are usually already taken. There are public places to sit outside, just east of the storefront, though.

This place isn't cheap. A small frozen yogurt with no toppings will still set you back about $3 or so. Large ones with toppings will be about $6. Worth it, either way.

You may note that I listed this place as good for "romance." I have to explain that a bit, though. This is not a "romantic restaurant experience" by any means. This is a carry out dessert place. It's "romantic" in the sense that it's a good place to take a date or sweetheart for a treat. It's a good stop on a casual date while strolling through Evanston, particularly if your date has never been there. It's casual, fun and usual, and therefore, a good date place. It thereby qualifies as good for "romance," as I see it.

“The slightly tart taste...”
Reviewed 6 September 2008

The slightly tart taste of the yogurt is a nice counterbalance to the variety of sweet toppings like strawberries, blueberries, and Fruity Pebbles cereal. A not-overly-sweet treat that's pretty good for you to!
