Fro-yo Seattle Report: The Invasion of the Chains

Fro-yo girl here. There’s been quite a bit of fro-yo activity since my visit to Seattle last fall. Self-serve fro-yo has taken off in a big way. Yogurtland and Menchie’s are staking their claim on various neighborhoods.

* Current Seattle area YL locations: Capitol Hill, Wallingford, University Village, Bellevue. Coming soon to Redmond and Kent.
* Current Seattle area Menchie’s locations: Queen Anne, University Village, West Seattle, Vancouver, Federal Way, Lynnwood. Coming soon to Kirkland, Bellingham, Puyallup and Magnolia Village (Seattle).

For some reason the Yogurtland locations seemed more accessible and closer to various colleges and universities. I never made it to West Seattle to see the Menchie’s there. I love how Yogurtland's Wallingford location is right next to a teriyaki restaurant. So Seattle!

Other self-serve fro-yo shops in Seattle include Zoeyogurt in Greenlake and Froyo Fresh in the Columbia Center downtown. Cool Whirled was a self-serve fro-yo shop that didn’t last long in the Fremont neighborhood. It’s the golden age of self-serve fro-yo in Seattle.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
