Marketfair North Plaza in Clay is the home of the new Yogurt City.  I’m not the best person in the world to review this place, but since I drive past it fairly frequently, I got called on.

Although this is a franchise location, it hasn’t got a lot of competition outside of Destiny.  Not right now, anyway.  And certainly not in Marketfair North, although it’s got a great spot right next to Liehs & Steigerwald.

It’s not even noon, and I need to run to Staples – also in the plaza – to get some supplies.  Surely Yogurt City won’t be open before lunch.  But to my surprise, it is.  Not only that, I find the hours listed on the door simply astounding.  They are currently open from 11 AM to 11:30 PM Monday through Saturday, and “only” noon to 11 on Sunday.  I love their optimism, but they can’t maintain those hours, even during the summer.  Can they?

Walking in, all you see is space.  Clean, wide-open floor space.  There are a couple tables on your right, and then the counter.  Farther back is the “fixin’s” spot, with assorted candies, crushed cookies and a few berries, and at the end of the right wall is a bank of yogurt dispensers.  Across from that is a rack of cups.  And that’s it, man.

Here’s the deal: there’s no more space here than there is at, say, Chuckleberries, but it’s not broken up.  The walls are stark, no decoration.  No tables, no walls.  It looks huge and empty.  If there were a dozen people in there, it would still seem empty.

Anyway, I tried some of the yogurt flavors.  I got Red Velvet Cake, and chocolate, and cheesecake.  Again, I was the wrong person to send, because I didn’t really taste different flavors.  All I tasted was “sweet.”  If what you’re looking for is something sweet after (or between) meals, this should do the trick.  Are these the best yogurt flavors?  I have no idea – sorry.

Right now they have a BOGO Free sale advertised, but they still charged me full price for my single medium-sized cup.  Take a friend and split the charges.  Other than the sale, I’d say the prices were fairly average for this kind of treat.

Parking is great, interior is large and clean.  Service was friendly – the person behind the counter smiled and thanked me for coming in, but there was no chit-chat.  I bypassed all the toppings, and the tables, and stood outside in the sunshine enjoying the frozen sweetness, then popped over to Staples.  It’s a great convenience if you’re getting lunch at Steigerwald’s.
