Opening Soon: The Yogurt Tap

6 Comments

Walking around in downtown Decatur on a recent blazing hot July afternoon, I made a beeline when I spotted signage for The Yogurt Tap, a new frozen yogurt shop that Micropundit put on my radar a couple of weeks ago. Sadly, there was still butcher paper up on the windows in the former Houseworks space on Church street, and I peeked inside to find a contractor hard at work on the unfinished space.

I was, however, able to chat with owner Lindsey Phillips, a stay-at-home mom who’s opening the shop with her husband, Stanford. The pair decided to get into the yogurt business after a trip to visit family in Los Angeles, where Pinkberry-mania has spawned numerous imitators. They ended up taking a month-long yogurt tour around California and returning home to Atlanta with lots of ideas.

The Yogurt Tap will offer tart-style yogurt—the kind that “actually tastes like yogurt, not like TCBY,” says Phillips. The most unique aspect of this addition to the yogurt scene? It’s all self-serve. The Yogurt Tap will offer six flavors at a time and a full bar of toppings; customers fill cups to their desire and pay by weight, 39 cents per ounce. Phillips says the original tart will be a staple, along with rotating flavors including dark chocolate, pineapple, green apple and strawberry.

Phillips expects to be open for business by the end of next week, after a few days of friends-and-family tastings.

    Finally! I’ve been waiting for a place like this in Decatur ever since I first tasted Yoforia. I will be a regular, no doubt.

    I live right by Glenwood elementary and am tired of driving ~17 minutes to get Yoforia. Hooray!
