Lots of frozen yogurt in Mill Valley


Mill Valley is special. We have two Whole Foods within 1.2 miles of each other and we have two frozen yogurt places within two blocks of each other not to mention the one located downtown or the one in Strawberry Village. Off the top of my head I can think of four frozen yogurt places in Mill Valley (and Mill Valley is not a big city!) Funny thing is, only 13,000 people live in Mill Valley. I guess you could say Mill Valley really likes healthy food and frozen yogurt.

My favorite frozen yogurt place is Swirl. Swirl is one of the newer kids in the neighborhood but I love the self serve concept. The yogurt is sold by weight so you can eat as much or as little as you want and you can mix your yogurt and toppings as crazy as you’d like. For instance, I had a little of each of these toppings on top of my last yogurt: mango, strawberry, raspberries, chocolate chips, gummy bears and chocolate syrup. It’s like a salad bar of yogurt and toppings. (I know I should have totally taken a picture of my concoction but I was too busy eating it.)

Something else I love about Swirl is the atmosphere. It’s fun! Swirl is owned and operated by a local Mill Valley family. When the owner is there he walks around with his camera snapping pictures of all the happy frozen yogurt eaters. Those pictures get uploaded to the big screen TV so the next time you come in you can watch for your picture on the screen. I’m up there at least twice. 😉

This frozen yogurt is great fun for everyone!

    I haven’t made it to all the places yet, but I’m partial to Gelateria Noci (formerly Cici) on Blithedale – all organic and lots of choices, including soft serve Straus yogurt. Swirl is fun and great for kids but there were not enough healthy toppings for me. It’s ok, you can call me picky.

    Hmmm Shae I’ll have to try the Yellow Cake Batter… it sounds strange but maybe I’ll love it. I know the people that work there are SO patient with all the people that arrive late desperate for a late night yogurt treat. 🙂 I sat out in my car once finishing my yogurt and watching people just pour in non-stop for about an hour after closing.

    Doug you are picky! Maybe you just need to go to Swirl with me and I’ll show you how to do it!
