Self serve frozen yogurt. They had many flavors and countless toppings. My kids mixed and matched many different combinations. You pay per ounce, so be careful. The place was clean and the server was very nice. He let us try all of the flavors. Graham cracker was my favorite.

We ordered 2 crepes and waited 25 minutes for the first one to come out. The other came out 10 minutes later. They weren't busy with maybe a total of 8 customers coming in to get yogurt during that time. The crepes were thick like pita bread and had a cardboard consistency to them--you definitely needed a knife to cut... More

Honestly, it's difficult to mess up frozen yogurt. What I like about this place is the variety of fruits and other toppings. And!!! They had European Tart, which many frozen yogurt places in the U.S. do not. And the owner is awesome! He's European (had difficulty placing his accent) and very friendly.

It looks like any old hole in the wall but what they offer will surprise you. They offer any number of flavors of frozen yogurt, from Chocolate/Hazelnut, to Mango, to Cookie and Cream. These are self dispensed and paid for by the weight. They also offer crepes. The beautiful MsKim had a Turkey Crepe which came with almonds and cheese... More

I like the way you can make your own dessert here. You pay by the ounce, and everything costs the same amount ($0.49/oz) so you can put as many different kinds in your bowl as you want, and as many different kinds of toppings, and then they just weigh it at the end. They also give you good taste tests... More

On a recent trip to old city to satisfy my cheese steak craving at sonneys(3rd and market); I found a frozen yogurt and crepe oasis directly across the street! The wait for an overpriced cheese steak is a definitely now a philly tradition! I parked at 229 market street and noticed long lines at two of my favorite places in... More

The best yogurt place I've ever been to. The people who works there are friendly. There're many flavors for yogurt and it taste like real fruit yogurt, not powdery, and the fruits and toppings are fresh. Also, they make coffee, smoothie, and CREPES!! Their crepes is the best and the price is reasonable. I'll definitely go back. Highly recommended!!

A cute self-serve frozen yogurt shop, 5 minutes walk from the Liberty Bell Centre. Lots of different flavours of yogurt (I recommend original & banana) & a great selection of toppings, including coconut, pineapple, kiwi, watermelon, strawberries, peanut butter cups, caramel sauce & butterscotch sauce. Tasty & refreshing after a busy day sightseeing.

For a self-serve yogurt bar, it had the fewest selection of add-ons I've ever seen. Other than that, the experience was positive. Yogurt tasted good and the few toppings they had were good as well.
