  • I’m sorry, but this is brutally dull! I just can’t give a shit that another fro-yo place opened, I’m sorry, I can’t.

  • I don’t understand why some people can’t just be happy that new places are open….what would you prefer- another yum’s?

  • your name is very fitting

  • So excited for this opening. I was there over
    The weekend and had a great experience. The fro yo was great, the staff was friendly and what a clean store environment. Best of luck! I k ow you’ll do great.

  • The frozen yogurt is delish. I really love that it’s self serve and there are many choices. I think it is a refreshing addition to the U Street area. There are plenty of fro-yo places around but I do think this place is quality and anything but dull.

  • I agree totally.

  • I wonder how long the FroYo place on U between 11th and 10th will stay open now. I feel bad because the owner(s) are really nice, not sure if two stores this close can both thrive. Plus, I noticed that store had a Groupon/Living Social deal. Most likely a bad sign for them.

    Menchie’s is a little off U, but you can definitely still see if from that intersection.

  • Maybe they can sell ice cream now that the place on 13th and U is turning into a wine bar

  • I would have preferred it if the Teaism would have moved in instead, for one.
