Delightful Treats at Pinkberry

This place tastes as good as it looks. The menu is simple: three frozen yogurt flavors with a topping counter. Adding one or many fresh fruit toppings enhance this healthy treat.

I heard of the cool concept of Pinkberry but I never tasted yummy yogurt until yesterday.

After a tasting, I am fond of the three flavors: original, green tea and the latest addition, pomegranate. Pinkberry caters real, nonfat frozen yogurt with live and active cultures.

Pinkberry is the creation of Shelly Hwang, an entrepreneur, and the architect Young Lee. They opened their first store in 2005 in West Hollywood. From business partners, they become a couple. (I cannot tell you if they still are a couple).

The Decor

I sat on an orange Philippe Starck’s Victoria Ghost chair but I prefer the banquette. Lee went for Le Klint lamps because they evoke the swirls of the frozen yogurt. The flower wall is stunning. On a bookshelf, they display Alessi kitchenware and tableware. They serve as d├ęcor that you can bring home since Pinkberry sells them. Overall it is so fun to go to Pinkberry that I plan to go one more time before leaving LA.

  2. That frozen yogurt looks stunning we used to have shops here that made and sold the stuff but we no longer have these little shops and they really were the best.
