good yogurt, big hollow, cool atmosphere, not great parking, not huge fan, horrible customer service, dry toppings
Average Yogurt Spot, Dont know what all the Hype is about!. The yogurt was good, but I had better yogurt. The topping selection was weak. Highly price yogurt that doesnt offer self serve and choice to choose unlimited toppings unless you want to pay way more than you wanted for a cup of yogurt. There are much better yogurt places out there prior to pinkberry. I had to check this place out myself when I was in LA 2 weeks ago and I was not that impressed.
It's the new boba!. Remember a few years ago when everyone was going nuts over the boba craze? Consider Pinkberry the new boba. OVERRATED!
ONE MORE GATHERING OF NUMB-MINDED TREND-RATS!. Yes, yes, yes. Pinkberry's trendy as hell. Its decor falls somewhere between that of an IKEA cafeteria & a Tokyo nightmare & the lines are out the door. I'm most familiar with the establishment on Vermont in Los Feliz but friends in New York say it's a hotspot there as well. The place is packed all day & night. Glassy-eyed hipsters wander out into the street with trays of the stuff. I tried it twice & personally found the "yogurt" to taste like a tarnished silver spoon. But maybe that's just me. Here's something: The yogurt they serve is delivered to the place in powdered form. And there's word it's not fat-free. Their website currently offers a vague assurance of wholesomeness but notes the company is "investigating" recent inquiries into the nature of the product (see "About " at www.pinkberry.c_m). So, if you're after a low calorie, "fat-free" wretched mystery then climb on board - the ship of fools is hoppin' - but be sure to wear your black All-Stars if you want a seat at the cool table. My humble suggestion (for those in the Los Feliz area)... cowboy up fattys & check out the Hollywood Gelato Co. on Hillhurst. Gelato's not fat-free either but it's significantly richer yet healthier than ice cream (due to the making process & the fact it's key ingredient is milk rather than cream) & there's way more than two flavors to choose from. In closing, it is my firm belief that the sooner we shake baseless trends, crucify mediocrity in the parking lots of shopping malls & demand good products the better off we'll be as a race. That said, let's hope Pinkberry shortly packs the powder in its bags & takes the dopey hordes with 'em. - J_James
Be careful- it can be addicting!!. I am not a huge fan of plain yogurt, but I was conned into trying Pinkberry and let me tell you- I loved it! I am really picky in general and so it was really strange that I found something healthy that I actually enjoyed. The price is a bit high... $4.95 for a medium cup which is something like 7 oz. of yogurt I think with your choice of 3 toppings. All of the toppings are healthy- dry toppings include granola, almonds, gummy bears, etc. It's the fruit toppings that make this yogurt delicious- strawberries, mangos, kiwis, pineapples, raspberries, bananas, etc. There was even a time when pomegranate was a topping (yum!). But be careful, this place really can become addicting. It has become that to a lot of my co-workers. $4.95 Monday through Friday can add up. The parking isn't great and the lines can be really long (out the door). It's in the heart of Koreatown, and yes- you will see a lot of Koreans there. And if you're thinking that yogurt sounds good for breakfast, you'll have to wait until 11:00am when Pinkberry opens.
Tastes different. Ever since the summer, all I hear is about this new rage on "Pinkberry". How great it tastes and how cool the atmosphere is, etc. My husband & I are big-time foodies so we tried it several times at different locations. First of all, the yogurt tastes little bit different than any others so it attracts a lot of customers but the main ingredient is definetely not organic or not probiotic at all. They advertise to make people think that this is the only yogurt that will change your health, but it's not it. You can taste the korean yogurt they sell at the market to make it taste little different. The customer service is horrible in every location. You always get a big hollow and to justify themselves, they weigh it in front of your face like you did something wrong and they're trying to prove you wrong. Why have such a bigger cup? This makes people think you're getting your monies worth, but it's so overrated. Plus, what kind of service business is rude to the customers? This place is definetely just a trend.
Homegrown frozen yogurt favorite dishes out healthful flavors topped with classic cereal or exotic fruit..
Accented by kiwi-green walls and nouveau-chic furnishings, this tiny yogurt shop attracts a cream-craving, health-conscious crowd. Lines of raving regulars spill onto the street, where they wait patiently for super-tart swirls of non-fat yogurt. Flavors are minimal, including only vanilla and green tea, but toppings abound with sugary selections like Fruity Pebbles and Captain Crunch, or more adult add-ons like blueberries, mangoes or watermelon.
