Leaf & Berry
It's easy to lose your mind for a second upon walking into Leaf & Berry. That's because shortly after you notice the gleaming tile wall outfitted with more than a dozen frozen yogurt dispensers, you'll realize there's nothing keeping you from walking right up to it. These are self-serve stations, where you can draw as much yogurt as you want into your cup. Though enjoyable, the process is a difficult one, as you first have to choose from flavors such as salted caramel, pistachio, and greek tart. The selection of toppings is dizzying as well: a buffet-style bar boasts a colorful spread of gummy bears, Ghirardelli white chocolate, mango boba, and fresh pineapple. In addition to crafting their own fro-yo masterpieces, guests often opt to grab frozen custard, blend their preferred fro-yo flavor into a smoothie, or sip on a freshly brewed cup of one of 40 international gourmet teas.
Of course, the sweet treats draw a crowd of all ages to Leaf & Berry most days. But on various Saturday nights, performer Bentley James hosts Drag Queen Bingo, now featured on WDIV Channel 4's "Live in the D" show. The offbeat event has become quite popular with locals, who nibble on their custom desserts while teaching gummy bears how to mark numbers on their cards.
