Right in the middle of Davis Square, this little café serves both savoury and sweet crêpes, both of which are of very reasonable standard. The food is served quickly, and can be taken out if you wish, as can the drinks.

All in all, if you need a quick, easy meal, you won't go far wrong with the iYo café.

I was excited to try this place since you can make your own waffle and top it with a choice of many different yogurts and toppings. However, the waffle mix tastes worse than Bisquick and has a real chemical taste. The vanilla yogurt I tried was incredibly sweet with no real taste except sugar. I topped it all with fresh fruit which was, of course, delicious since it was the real thing! So, a great idea, but in need of higher quality ingredients.

i was hopeful, as i am whenever a new coffeehouse opens, but the coffee here was nothing special, meaning it was as bitter and poor as the stuff over at Diesel. Like drinking catchers mitt runoff. i've come in a few times, and the pastries were old and not very good, when they had them at all. i won't be returning..

In addition to delicious self serv fro-yo with lots of toppings, very nice atmosphere... exposed brick and a gas fireplace in the front area. Romantic, actually, which is not what one expects in a fro-yo shop. Front room is typically filled with college-twenty-somethings on their laptops. If you have a group of kids that want to make a ruckus, there is a back room, with a floor to ceiling chalkboard and colorful chalk to entertain them.

Soft-serve yogurt with buffet of toppings all self-serve and weigh it at the end. This place got me through the summer. I'd walk here almost every night for dessert. Now it's winter, and I haven't been as often, but I hear their waffles are amazing.
