With 70+ toppings available each day at Strawberry Fields Self-Serve Frozen Yogurt, the potential treat combinations seem almost endless. Items such as crumbled Heath bars, cookie dough, and strawberries make it hard to only choose a few, though limiting yourself is not required: the self-serve nature of Strawberry Fields makes it easy to customize each treat exactly how you like it. Beyond candy, popular toppings also include Ghirardelli sauces and healthier add-ins such as wheat germ and fresh fruit. Though the frozen yogurt flavors change daily, the menu often includes yogurt options such as cake batter or honey lavender tart. And though all these toppings were designed to crown the shop's frozen treats, they also serve another purpose: bakers here stuff them into custom frozen yogurt cakes. Strawberry Fields also offers their candies a la carte, along with smoothies, and other non-yogurt treats.
Realizing the neighborhood was already buzzing with great restaurants and a nearby community theater, owner Jun Yoon knew the only way to improve on it was to add a memorable dessert destination to the equation. With his desire to be part of an enlivened community, he opened his café’s doors to serve frozen yogurt, cakes, truffles, and organic, fair-trade Counter Culture coffee. Within the 26-seat sweets shop, Jun doles out dollops of the Italian ice-cream treat called tartufo, as well as belgian waffles, crepes, salads, and sandwiches. He specifically designed the menu to make it an ideal spot for stopping in before the theater, after dinner, during lunch, or on the way to a castle storming. Jun also welcomes the community to his friendly confines for parties and private events.

When customers pull one of the silver levers protruding from Yummy Yogurt’s citrus-hued walls, frozen yogurt in these and other flavors pours down, filling their cups. With a flavor for seemingly everyone, the self-serve frozen-yogurt shop carries a rotating array of 24 yogurts every week, including dairy-free, sugar-free, low-fat, and fat-free varieties. Visitors can crown their yogurt with their choice of 50 toppings, then eat their concoction in the eatery’s spherical, egg-like chairs.
