I looked on the pinkberry website and couldn't find a list of locations. Anybody know all the locations? If not, can you put down the location you know of? I know of the following locations by looking thru chowhound but not sure what the address or location is:

Rowland Heights
Pasadena
Sawtelle

Any Valley locations?

  1. I know there's one coming soon to Valencia Town Center, in Santa Clarita Valley. Also, they just opened a new Pinkberry in Rolling Hills.

      I have never had it, but I walked past the new one in Rolling Hills on Sunday. All the outside tables in a long stretch of shops on this high 80's day were filled with Pinkberry eaters. Big looking cups with some fruit toppings (I did not want to walk up and stare). No lines. The Baskin Robbins in the same center had a few die-hards, but PB was definately the flavor of the month.

    2. from Wikipedia

      * Korea Town
      * Larchmont
      * Long Beach
      * Marina Del Rey
      * Studio City
      * Loz Feliz
      * Temecula
      * West Hollywood
      * West LA
      * Westwood
      * Rolling Hills

      1. The Pasadena one has been "opening" for months and I've yet to see any progress! It's been boarded up for a while now. The one in Brentwood, on the other hand, is making rapid progress towards being open for business.

        1. re: ciaobella

          Where in Brentwood are they opening?

          1. re: MrShoop

            On that little side street that splits off Barrington (behind the Starbucks) near the corner of San Vicente - so kind of next to Whole Foods

            1. re: ciaobella

              Guess what - turns out they are opening TWO in Brentwood. The one you spoke of, and another one at Barrington and Sunset in the Brentwood Village. It's next to Divino's where a bagel place used to be. Two Starbucks, two Pinkberrys. What is the world coming to?

              1. re: blogger

                It looks like the one on San Vicente is about to open - I drove past this evening and they pulled the paper covering off the door and windows. It looked like there may just be some cleanup work remaining.

                1. re: MrShoop

                  The Brentwood/San Vicente location was open today. Unfortunately the parking lot was blocked of for construction. Still looked to be a line out the door.

          2. re: ciaobella

            the pasadena one is opening end of july

          3. There are boards up at the Farmer's Market (3rd & Fairfax) saying one is coming there to obliterate another homey, old fashioned stall in the ever continuing evolution of Farmer's Market from quirky historic site to shopping mall food court.

            1. I think this is the upcoming address for the Rowland Heights location:

              19756 Colima Rd.
              Rowland Heights, California 91748

              They're taking the spot that was Mama & Papas New York Pizza near Stater Bros.

              1. I saw a sign for one coming soon to Century City shopping center.

                1. There is also a pinkberry in progress on Beverly Blvd. near the Chipotle. Like other locations, however, it has been boarded up for a while and there is no word on when it is scheduled to open.

                  1. someone already mentioned it but your valley location is studio city. Its in the Trader Joes center at Laurel Canyon and Ventura

                    Be prepared for a line (and horrible parking). I live right around the corner. I've been once to see what they hype was about, and was underwhelmed. It is fresh tasting but I don't get all the fascination. For my money I like Studio Yogurt, in the adjacent shopping center. More traditional froyo but a great assortment of flavors and fresh toppings (and generous with their toppings)

                    1. re: caseykay68

                      I attempted to go there on Sunday night. We needed to go to TJ's so I thought I'd finally check out the pinkberry since I had to be there. The line was out the door. I'm not a fan of lines, so we did our TJ's shopping and then went to Studio Yogurt where there was no line and plenty of places to sit AND they have sugar-free varieties which PB doesn't.

                      1. re: caseykay68

                        There is one coming in the Topanga Mall sometime soon. I saw on craig's list they were looking for people to work there. I do love Pinkberry...however i feel the Abbot Kinney one was a bit out of its place...but yet it still tastes good to me!

                        1. re: oneluv

                          It's open. Been there several times already in the last 2 months. And, Valleyites, another one is opening up in the Northridge Costco (yes! Costco) parking lot very soon. Right across the entrance from the new In-and-Out-Burger. What is the Valley coming to...?

                        2. re: caseykay68

                          I live near the Studio City area but i know that a new yogurt place opened in Encino which isn't THAT far

                          and i went on Grand Opening day
                          and i aboslutely fell in love
                          its actually so good with 4 different flavors and great toppings
                          i think you should give it a try if you don't want to stand in a line as long
                          the original and green tea basically taste the same...but i find it more refreshing
                          depends on the person i guess

                        3. Sorry, this has nothing to do with your question but my friend used to work at pinkberry in LBC. She said she got yelled at for putting too much toppings on a yogurt. I think she was 1 oz. off. I found that really funny.

                          1. Surprisingly drove by a nearly completed Pink Berry on Abbot Kinney.

                            Their neon exterior is blinding compared to the other store fronts, ugh.

                            1. There is a Pinkberry on melrose next to M cafe. I go by in the afternoon and there's almost never a line. But parking is a challenge sometimes.

                                Interesting backlash on Pinkberry. Those are the perils of expanding too rapidly, I suppose. I haven't tasted it myself -- I'm still waiting for the Pasadena store to open. I don't plan on standing in any line for it, so I suppose I'll have to wait a while if there's a big to-do when it finally opens.

                              2. Dense I know, but please tell what it is??! Thx.

                                1. Does pinkberry offer anything w/no added sugar?

                                    No and that's their one of their flaws as far as I am concerned.

                                  2. There are actually two in Long Beach that are up and running now - one is in Second Street in the Belmont Shore part of town and the other is at on Broadway just east of Pine Avenue downtown.

                                      I live in Hermosa and we just got notice for public hearing for a PB location on corner of PCH and Aviation with a drive through window!

                                      Aliris-as far as I know it is frozen yogurt that comes in 2 flavors-regular (plain?) and green tea? Not sure but think it is a Korean import and tastes like yogurt in that it is sour? Never had it but wanted to answer your question. I live in gelato territory. Perhaps someone who has had it will be kind enough to answer your question.

                                      1. re: Densible

                                        It's not a Korean import as much as a knockoff of the yogurt places popular in Korea.

                                        I think pretty soon the question will be, "Where ISN'T there a Pinkberry?" Let's hope the bubble bursts soon. Pinkberry is spreading like the pink-and-lime-green-striped plague.

                                        1. re: Woolsey

                                          - The Los Feliz one (has it opened yet) is more or less Silver Lake on the corner of Hyperion and Rowena.
                                          - One soon to open on 2nd Street in Little Tokyo.
                                          - There is another sour yogurt place inside the Little Tokyo mall) which I suspect is the same stuff as at Pinkberry (plain sour, green tea, pomegranate flavors) - seems Korean but has an Italian name.

                                          1. re: Vikzen

                                            I think the other business serving similar froyo that you're referring to is Ci Fiore... More flavors, texture's a little different, but other than that, it's pretty much the same thing...

                                            1. re: bulavinaka

                                              When it opened, it Cé Fiore was just "Fiore." Anyone know why the name change? Lawsuit from another Fiore?

                                              1. re: Woolsey

                                                Yes, that's correct: Cé Fiore in Little Tokyo, soon to face yet another Pinkberry competitor. Now, did anyone read the Times article a few weeks ago about the controversial / suspect ingredients in Pinkberry's product? Apparently the process by which it is made does not meet the standard frozen yogurt mixing protocol. Sorry I can't be more specific!

                                                1. re: Vikzen

                                                  Just a fyi, the Pinkberry in Little Tokyo finally opened in the last couple of days. They are not busy, but then again they have some established competitors already there.

                                                  1. re: Vikzen

                                                    Yep after all the publicity of Pinkberry not being yogurt they had to change their advertising. If you love it go but just know it's not giving you the health benefits and according to the tests it's not even close.

                                                    1. re: Dig T

                                                      If you're looking for great froyo that does have the health benefits, go to the one that PB used as their model - Red Mango. They can claim it's froyo because their product does carry live cultures... and tastes great...

                                              2. re: Vikzen

                                                There is also one in actual Los Feliz on Vermont in between Fred 62s and Starbucks.

                                            2. re: Densible

                                              Has the one in Hermosa opened yet? It's been there forever but doesnt look open? Any ideas when?

                                          2. There's one in westlake village inside the trader joe's strip mall (pierce arrow/thousand oaks blvd.)

                                            1. There's also one opening up in Northridge on Tampa, in the Costco shopping center next to the new In and Out.

                                              Mmm, Pinkberry and In and Out - what a "deliciously natural combination". :p

                                              1. In Santa Monica, a new store is opening on Montana Ave (between 16th & 17th)......no parking!

                                                1. The one at the farmer's market has opened. I was there yesterday and had Pinkberry for the first time. I tried the Green Tea flavor with raspberries and bananas. The fruit was good - that was it. It was vile and sour. I absolutely hated it. I payed $5.40 for a small serving of disgusting mystery goop and I literally can't understand why anyone would like it. Perhaps the original flavor is better, but there is no way I'm ever going to try it. I actually asked the manager if there was a money back guarantee! Hahaha. Of course there isn't...I'm sure I'm not the only one who hates it? Am I???

                                                  Anyway, to anyone who hasn't tried it yet - DON'T DO IT! It is a rip off and I bet you that in 1 year, half or more of these stores will close. It is a fad - plain and simple.

                                                    Different strokes for different folks...I LOVE the green tea flavor with mango, blueberry, and mochi!!!

                                                      I'm HOPING that perhaps it was a bad batch - definitely a possibility...But, I still don't think I'll try it again!! :)

                                                      1. re: erintoc

                                                        Not trying to convert you, but I did experience a "funny"-tasting green tea flavor once at the Brentwood San Vicente location. My default place is Sawtelle (so far, until Montana store opens) where flavors have been consistent.

                                                        1. re: fdb

                                                          Hmmm....well, it definitely could have been a bad batch then...I'll have to be convinced to try it again, but I suspect if I have out of town visitors they may want to try the craze and I probably will try it again along with them! :) Thanks for the info....

                                                    2. re: erintoc

                                                      The green tea flavor at PB can take getting used to. In fact, green tea in general can be like that. I don't know if you've had anything that was maccha-flavored outside of actual maccha green tea before, but the kinds of things that compliment it can be somewhat limited. It tends to pair well with somwhat neutral and/or sweet things. If you've had real maccha before, you catch my drift.

                                                      PB's green tea-flavored chilly-bliss seems to be just that - flavored. I don't know if it's a flavoring, essence, or what. If you do like the flavor of maccha but were put off by PB's version but still want to try it again in a froyo/softserve, I'd suggest two places: Red Mango or the Mitsuwa's coffee/dessert counter in Mar Vista.

                                                      Red Mango's version is flavored with the real deal - maccha powder. The depth of flavor will satisfy most who enjoy maccha, and for those looking for the more naturally sourish taste of yogurt will be pleasantly surprised as to how this one really tastes like yogurt that has been frozen. PB's green tea flavor tends to hit a high note with the first few slurps, then disappears for some reason - the same sensation (or lack there of) when one eats certain junk foods like Bugles.

                                                      For those who are hardcore maccha crack addicts, the maccha-flavored softserve ice cream at Mitsuwa's coffee/dessert counter in Mar Vista is more like softserve ice cream-flavored maccha. The color alone will intimidate most - it reminds me of the color of the water in the pond where the saltwater crocodile cuts through in the opening scene of, "The Thin Red Line." They serve the softserve straight up, with sweet mochi, with azuki, or with both toppings. I would suggest getting both toppings as these are a flavor Holy Trinity with maccha.

                                                    3. Here's a list of their locations: http://www.pinkberry.com/html/store_1...

                                                      1. Larchmont Blvd. and Farmer's Market at 3rd & Fairfax. Pinkberry at Farmer's Market is about in the middle of Farmer's Market, next to Puritan Poultry, closer to the 3rd St. side.

                                                        1. If you're not too far from Menchie's frozen yogurt located on Laurel Canyon and Riverside across the street from the Jack in the Box I'd recommend going there instead. I've been to Pinkberry multiple times with different people and everyone I go with agrees it is a big waste of money and not nearly as good as it could be. It's more along the lines of the wannabe hipster "eccentric" crowd place. The average frozen yogurt place will probably give you more bang for the buck than Pinkberry ever will.
