This is a cute little frozen yoghurt bar just off Lygon St that we stumbled upon one Friday evening, after having pizza at D.O.C. We were super-full already, but were attracted to the cute bright layout of the shop – plus, it doesn’t hurt that there was a staff member handing out free tastings at the front.
Here they serve frozen yoghurt, cupcakes and macarons. I didn’t try the cupcakes or macarons, but they were very pleasing to the eyes. The frozen yoghurt comes in 2 cup sizes – regular ($5.5) or large ($6.5), with an additional 95c per topping or 3 toppings for $2.5.
The frozen yoghurt flavours available that night included: original, pomegranate, Dolce latte and ginger lemon. Toppings included fresh berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries), mango boba, other fresh fruit, berry compote, lollies, brownies and other chocolate bits, crumbles, wafers, Pocky, coconut and peanut mix, various crushed nuts, etc. Also available are deluxe parfaits and smoothies, as well as coffees and other drinks.

Ginger lemon Frozen Yoghurt with fresh strawberries, blackberries and crumble
The frozen yoghurt was good (tasted a bit like a lighter, healthier soft-serve) and I liked the variety of toppings available, but I thought it was too pricey for such a simple item. A standard cup with 3 toppings came to $8, which is more than what you normally pay even for a large cup of ice cream elsewhere. I wouldn't mind stopping by one day to try the macarons and cupcakes.
