My family loves going to self-serve yogurt businesses so we were pumped to find one in Cape May during a family vacation in July. We were more than eager to investigate the many flavors and see how many toppings they had to complement the yogurt.
As a traditional self-serve yogurt restaurant, they offered the normal serve-yourself pull-down levers and a counter for multiple toppings. This location was a bit smaller than what we were used to, but it was clean, and the employees were more than friendly offering a ton of advice from what yogurt to try based on our tastes, gluten free challenges and healthy options.
What we didn't know walking in were the health benefits of the product. They boast that Bonnie's yogurt has 50% less calories and sugar but a certain percentage more fiber and protein. What we found is that what it did or did not have did not affect the taste. It was great.
In this particular location there were 8 options for "froyo," of which 50% were gluten free. There were labels above the froyo that identified the nutritional benefits, and clear as day the words "gluten free." Very nice not to have to disect the ingredients.
The topping counter was a bit disappointing if you are used to the normal 40 or so, but not to diminish the weight of good frozen yogurt, the homemade whipped cream was to die for.
I was a bit weary of the product, but the staff were so knowledgeable about gluten free and the products were so fresh you couldn't help but feel comfortable.
Great comfortable atmosphere with CHAT PACKS on the table to assist with the family discussion-starters. The only other downside aside from the minimal gluten free topping offerings was the price. It's a bit pricey, probably about 10-15% more than what you are used to paying in the suburbs but definitely worth it. Our family went back three times to enjoy the yogurt, the atmosphere and the shopping center around the place.
I tried the french vanilla, raspberry pom, chocolate (which was labeled "awesome" by six people immediately) and peanut butter.
I enjoyed the crushed peanut butter cups, whipped cream and peanuts. Other gluten free family members had the coconut toppings and almonds.
Overall this place had great customer service, an excellent product, clean and fun environment (think coffee house but with yogurt) and enough options to please everyone in the family three times during a week-long vacation.
Rated only 4 palms because they ran out of whipped cream on the last night we visited.
