For those who are not sitting beside me while I’m typing up this post. Background music: Love Song (Playlist 1). RnB matches the mood of this moment.
There are always some places that we drive by many times, but never stop by…check out. This Yoboberri was one of them. Drive along Yonge, this place definitely caught my attention. You know me. I like treasure hunts and when I’m least expecting something, the outcome is usually better. On a weeknight. After gym. The stress-infused body and mind finally got the relief. This time, RL’s 6th sense found me. Trying to think of a place to chat – a flash of green popped into my mind. Thought of this place and decided to give it a try.
(What a coincidence – the other place that I frequent was also in color of green – the Green Grotto) Can’t deny. I do like this color. Good for your eyes.
Walked up the stairs and came into this place. On the far left there is the small areas that can seat 15-20 people. This is also the area that you can view from outside… when you’re driving on Yonge, checking out the Korean (most likely) girls and guys inside. Then, there is the racks of baked goodies that you can purchase. The racks make a nice natural divider between the seats and the counter.
On the other side, that’s where you order the yogurt icecream. Their yogurt icecream banners were quite catchy. That’s kinda how I got pulled (mentally) into this place. -__- Their yogurt icecream is different from the ones that you get from Yogen Fruz. This one is a bit sweeter and smoother. Instead of blending in the fruits, they only offer two flavors – green tea and original taste (I think) and then put fruits on top of it. I ordered the green tea one + fruit toppings. However, all they have left was some canned fruits. So, I got those instead.
On the far right side, there was also a small seating area. So, in total – rough estimate – max. capacity is about 40. The only server there was a young Korean guy. Service? not much. But then they don’t have service charge either. One man show, it’s good in a way that we were left alone. I like that. Thinking of Green Grotto… since it got so busy, I haven’t been there at night. If I go, I’d go when there’re less people or sometimes no one. Just chill. You know? The only thing about Yogoberri is that they don’t have magazines. So, I’d say this is the place to go if you want some chitchat with friends OR if you want to bring a piece of blank paper and think. The music there was quite upbeat.
I’m happy to find another place to chill up North. There was a clock that caught our attention. We liked that clock for some reasons. Not sure if it’ll also catch your attention.
