A stripe of bright green skirts each LimeBerry's ceiling, leading patrons' eyes to a bank of stainless-steel dispensers framed in petite tiles. There, patrons fill paper cups with swirled ribbons of fro-yo flavors, such as rich chocolate truffle, tart wildberry, and creamy cake batter—up to 15 varieties in all. Confectionery caravans then move on to a toppings bar where they load on up to 80 choices of edible provisions, including warm fudge, fresh fruit, nuts, and marshmallow cream. Bright-green chairs host noshers beneath framed action shots of blueberries sticking triple backflips off a Yurchenko vault.

Guests can then customize their icy treat with a stop at the shop’s mix-in bar featuring options such as gummy bears, Reese’s Pieces, and fresh strawberries and kiwis, for a treat as unique as a root-beer-flavored snowflake.

As diners gather around tabletops flanked by local artwork and vintage décor, they're free to sip organic, fair-trade teas or coffees or silence mumbling stomachs with lightweight soup and half-sandwich lunches.
