Ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.
Except for frozen yogurt.
a-touch-of-yogurtFrozen yogurt can put a smile on your face even when the thermometer says 118 degrees and there’s a haboob howling through our Urban Core.  Really.
If anyone has seen their share of summer heat – and worked to make it better even just for a minute or two – it’s A Touch of Yogurt.
This mom and pop shop has been open since August 1987 and, for nearly 26 years, they’ve been dishing up a rotating cast of daily frozen yogurt flavors with 40 different toppings to a loyal crowd of Downtowners.
Owners John and Marcia Bruno were one of the first to open up shop in the Renaissance Square tower. It’s hard to say if it’s their positive attitude, stress on quality or diverse yogurt options that keeps the steady stream of cool-treat seekers rolling through their door.
With everything from non-dairy sorbet to no-sugar-added flavors and their amazingly creamy non-fat yogurt, it’s hard to invent an excuse not to visit. Especially when you’re reminded that you can get a sweet, cold treat for only 20 calories an ounce. Or you can go all out with brownie bits, waffle cones and Rice Crispy treats (Editors note: we recommend this option).
Whatever your flavor, visit their website for the daily flavor calendar or their Facebook page for daily specials.
A Touch of Yogurt is open M-F 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located on the northwest corner of Washington Street and First Avenue.
* Pro tip 1 : Don’t be grouchy or mean when you visit, there’s a tongue in cheek sign warning of a $10 charge for putting up with irritating customers.
* Pro tip 2: Even if it’s 4:05 p.m., if you’ve got a serious hankering and are worried they’ve packed up and gone home, just stroll over and ask nicely. John and Marcia know the power of frozen yogurt to improve a day.
