Yogurberry (Wilshire/Western)

I just tried this new frozen yogurt place in the new Mercury Loft Building. Bottom Line: Don't waste your money. If you thought Pinkberry's yogurt was icy, you really havent seen anything until you try Yogurberry. Totally icy with skimpy portions. I ordered a medium plain with blackberries. They literally put six whole berries on the whole thing. The medium is 3.50 plus .75 for each topping. Pinkberry is still tops after trying Fiore, Yogurberry, and Pinkberry. Modern/Hollywood Regency decor with clear Kartel chairs. Hot Pink Walls with Black Chandeliers and tile mosaic walls. Nice space, friendly service, bad yogurt.

  1. Not to be contrary, but CĂ©Fiore whomps Stinkberry up and down the hall. So do Cantaloop, Snowberry, Yogotango...

      I hate to say it, but I just tried the new Yogurberry that opened up on Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood and I liked it BETTER than Pinkberry. Maybe it was the "harder" consistency that I prefered (or icy-ness, as you refer to it). Good sized, portions...really delicious stuff!

      1. re: foodieqt

        egad, what an awful name, tho. 'yogurberry'. my word, the insanity must stop.

        1. re: rameniac

          I guess the extra "T" in the name was prohibitively expensive...

          ...I would also guess "Yorgurtpia" has a similar dilemma (the "O" probably cost more since it was a vowel).

      2. re: Woolsey

        The only one I like is Yogotango for the tomato yogurt.

        The name Yogurberry does suck, but has anyone seen the chocolate chip cookies at the Whole Foods around Los Angeles called "Fish'n'Chips?" Talk about a bad name for cookies...

        1. re: Emme

          lol at least that's semi-original (h. salt not withstanding). maybe "yogurberry" is a tongue-in-cheek sendup of all the yogurt places sprouting up around town, although that wouldn't make it much worthier.

          1. re: rameniac

            I think Yogurberry is actually a korean chain that is expanding into socal, so their name was picked originally for the korean market. They aren't exactly just making up a "(blank)berry" name to compete with pinkberry.

            1. re: Dav

              The name Yogurberry does suck, but not as hard as Dietberry on Melrose.

              1. re: wutzizname

                LOL indeed. How about "Milky Icy" which morphed into "Cherry Lips?"

          2. re: Emme

            LOL I thought that was breadcrumb mix until I stared at it for 5 minutes in line.

        2. Yogurberry is what they're selling in the new Landmark West LA. It's certainly no better than Pinkberry and probably not as good.

          Right now, as far as I'm concerned, nothing competes with Red Mango.

            What he said. I'm just waiting for the Red Mango to open on Wilshire.

            1. re: cyberroo

              Is this open yet? On the Website ( it's moved fof the Coming Soon list.

              YAY, now i don't have to drive to the Westside

              1. re: JackonCrack

                Answering my own question. RED MANGO on Wilshire in the Miracle Mile (across from Burger King, just a blocok of so west of Highland) is now open!

                It was relatively empty when i went, and they still seem to be working out a few kinks (yogurt seemed a little...watery? fruit wasn't as fresh as Westwood) but I'll definately be back for the Red Mango smoothness.

          2. the yogurt is so good. they have different flavors that keep changing and the toppings are real fresh. i love the strawberry coconut swirl.

              I have to agree. I recently moved into the Mercury lofts and quickly became a regular at YogurBerry. Taste wise, it's better than PinkBerry and Snowberry (just down the street).

              1. re: KingsCast

                I wished I liked Yogurberry more, but to me it's so...THICK (and their plain isn't tangy at all).

                It reminds me of TCBY - 80s era yogurt, you know?

            2. Really? I love Yogurberry. I think it beats Pinkberry by FAR. It's actually one of the best ones out there. I've only tried the one in Rancho Cucamonga because it just opened up but it's SO GOOD!!!

                I love it and I like their space, it's comfy. I like Korean style frozen yogurt and they have rotating flavors. I like putting on my own topping. I like the toppings there better than at Pinkberry's. I like Pinkberry's too. I want to try Red Mango.
