Fro-yo girl here. The golden spoons are gone but Yogurt Deluxe still looks like a Golden Spoon location. The interior has not been remodeled since the shop changed ownership. The décor (white and red square tiles), menu board, and the furniture (black tables and chairs) remain the same. The fro-yo has changed.
Yogurt Deluxe has three locations in the Bay Area. It feels like an old school fro-yo shop, even though this location is new. The décor is minimal and the only attempt at being cute is the mascot, a bear holding a fro-yo cone. They still use Styrofoam cups.
This location offers 12 flavors of fro-yo a day, sundaes, banana splits and shakes. It isn’t self serve. I think they try to offer 1 low-carb Carb d’lite flavor a day and one sorbet.
Fro-yo prices: Child ($2.25)/ Small ($3.25)/ Medium($3.75)/ Large ($4.50)/ Quart ($7.25)
The toppings include mochi, nuts, candy, cereal, syrups, fresh fruit, cookies, chips, sprinkles, cookie dough, cheesecake bits, etc. I was happy to see Almond Roca and frosted Circus Animal cookies. They had a few sugar free toppings.
The original tart had a heavy cream taste that I didn’t like, so I selected the French vanilla fro-yo. The French vanilla yogurt was extremely creamy, smooth, and rich. I thought it was soft serve ice cream but I’m told it was fro-yo. I like that eggy French vanilla flavor. The portion was average but I normally hope for more generous portions at old school fro-yo shops. They were generous with toppings (2 scoops for 85 cents).
The frequent buyer card works for all three locations.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
