Metal-topped tables, transparent cobalt blue chairs, and a monochromatic gray wall lined with artwork. It has the look of a dapperly decorated modern cafe, but Dante's Frozen Yogurt, instead of merely serving coffee, presents frozen yogurt made with natural ingredients and fresh milk. The staff welcomes customers to create their own chilly concoctions with fro-yo made from fresh milk and real fruit purees. The result is a smooth and creamy treat, bolstered by live yogurt cultures and probiotics. Healthier than many other desserts, it comes in delectable flavors such as red velvet cupcake, blueberry tart, and triple chocolate. Despite the emphasis on smart eating, indulgence is never shunned at the toppings bar. There, guests select just about any color from the rainbow, perhaps sprinkling white chocolate chips, fresh mochi, and M&Ms over swirls of frozen yogurt. Of course, keeping it healthy is easy with nutrient-packed garnishes such as kiwi, strawberry, and granola.
While not a cafe, Dante's Frozen Yogurt actually does serve grin-inducing Arabica coffee and espresso drinks, as well as hot chocolate. The team also loads cookie jars with buttercrunch-stuffed chocolate bark, cookies, and cannolos. Whimsically, the shop is named after a cat with its own heartwarming story—though being the kingpin of a dessert empire hasn't gone to his head.
