Very popular. I expect lines in the middle of the summer, but they even have lines in the middle of winter. The frozen yogurt is very good and if you order a topping, you get plenty of that topping. (They add yogurt, followed by toppings, followed by more yogurt, followed by more toppings.) They also serve ice-cream and frozen custard.

Every time I walk by this place after dinner, there is a line waiting to be served. It is a great place to try different flavors before selecting on a cup or a cone to take away. There are different kinds of frozen treats, ice cream, shakes, frozen yoghurt, frozen custard, and even a couple of flavors of skinny/healthier iced... More

In addition to a very good ice cream flavor selection, there are many options for customizing your ice cream creation. Lots of choices!

There are long lines for this place. But it is worth the wait. Many many different flavors ensure that there is something for everyone. Even a low lactose product. There is plenty of seating outside. A nice treat.

Great ice cream whether in a cup or a cone in the heart of Willow Glen. The young men behind the counter give you a stuffed cup of terrific ice cream. no skimping. A Willow Glen tradition for years and years all wrapped up in a clean crisp new shop 5 steps from the location of the original shop. Good... More

A Willow Glen tradition in the summer time. Be prepared to stand in line and then try to find a place to sit. It is fun seeing all the families hang out here on a hot night.

The midwestern treat of frozen custard - vanilla and chocolate. First introduced to this delicious frozen treat on a hot night in St. Louis, Mo. My mouth exploded in delight. Creamy, dense, and just everything you want in a yummy dessert. The frozen yogurt comes in many flavors that are changed daily. Love this place because of the young staff... More

This is such a cute little shop. We stop in here often. I love that they have frozen custard- SO good. Even when it's freezing outside, they're busy.

Sure, the yogurt and ice cream are great. But the best is the REAL frozen yogurt they have--the "tart" kind. Wonderful. They will be closed for several months now as they are being torn down and incorporated into the neighboring new shopping center. It will be worth the wait.
