The Scene With locations across the Washington metro area, this is a review of the newest location in Alexandria. Voted 2012’s Best in D.C. by Washingtonian Magazine, the Old Town location lends an ethereal vibe with wood tone walls, pebble flooring, and subtle house tunes. There is usually a staff member ready to hand you a tiny sample cup which helps in making the right flavor choice. Flash your id on your birthday to receive 50% off frozen yogurt. Make it a party and your friends can get 10% off their yogurt selection. Not too shabby. The Food I was a bit daring and sampled Taro which is a root fruit similar to coconut. It tasted a bit milder than coconut and I was surprised by the purple hue. If you really want to know the amount of calories, sugar, and carbs the writing is faintly positioned next to the yogurt selection. There weren’t a lot of choices and while I love Key Lime Pie and Raspberry Lemonade sounded superb, I’m a sucker for Birthday Cake. I wasn’t really hungry so I got a small portion and tried to cover up the icy flavor with peanut butter chips, Reeses, and sprinkles. I couldn’t get over how icy it tasted though. Perhaps it was just this flavor. At 49 cents an ounce, I managed not to splurge. For an additional $1 you can have your frozen yogurt blended into a smoothie. They also have boba drinks, aka bubble tea. The Kid Appeal Chair and tables that spin with a view of the bustling street! Not to mention teddy grahams, sour patch kids, gummy worms, and Cap’n Crunch berry cereal. I like that all the toppings are labeled. They also have granola, fruit (though it appeared canned), and simple syrups like chocolate, caramel, and honey. If you have a peanut or tree nut allergy, I would steer clear of the toppings bar because everything is in close contact. Noise Level Quiet and filled with the work force during our Friday afternoon visit. High Chairs/Boosters None. Changing Table None. Review and photos by Kathleen Molloy.
