For those of you with Pinkberry envy (that über hip and colorful California-based frozen-yogurt chain) rejoicing in the fact that now we have Shnoo Yogurt (Kirkland and 4th & Pine, downtown) and Yoberry (3rd & Marion, downtown) here's some more delectable dairy data: there's yet another yogurt joint in the city. Crazyberry opened up two days ago on Broadway in Capitol Hill(corner of Olive Way, next to US Bank).
You had no idea you say? I know, me neither! But I literally bumped into it earlier today while in the area shopping for a Murakami novel at Twice Sold Tales. I had parked my car right across the street from the Pyroshki place and had at least 20 minutes left on the meter so of course I wanted to use up the time and perhaps look for some take-out or espresso in the area.
As I looked to my left, there it was. The sign made me very curious so I crossed the street and went in. After sampling their three flavors (strawberry, plain and green tea) I opted for a small cup ($2.50) of swirled green tea and strawberry yogurt topped with fresh blueberries ($1.00). It was delicious, not too sweet and a bit tangy, which is exactly how I like my yogurt. And with today's heat it was just the perfect pick me up.
The place struck me as really friendly and easier on the pocketbook than the LA version but with a much smaller array of toppings. Bear in mind, Crazyberry has not even announced a grand opening yet but if you find yourself in the area with cash in hand, do stop by and try it out. The owner is on-site, super nice and the yogurt is quite yummy. Ahh, and unlike Pinkberry, photography is not prohibited. Ha!
