The Castro location of Easy Breezy
has opened, eradicating a crippling fro-yo/fro-gurt deficit that for years has afflicted the neighborhood. As with the other locations, this one is self-serve, which means you can indulge your inner nine-year-old (or perhaps a nine-year-old that you’re taking out for frozen yogurt) and mix things up.
It’s not just fro-yo, either, as Easy Breezy is all about those egg-y custards, plus non-dairy flavors such as basil lime or peanut butter. Definitely don’t miss a sample of Castro Cupcake, a delicious, lavender cross between cake batter and taro. And the toppings are impressive, running the full gamut from outright child’s play (sour apple gummy soldiers) through super-grown-up stuff like sea salt caramel truffles to things that childless adults are probably sneaking onto their vanilla when no one’s looking (Fruity Pebbles).
The thing to watch out for is that at $.68/ounce, the costs can run up deceptively quickly. (To wit: I dropped $15.84 on dessert for me and my boyfriend, which isn’t terrible, but still a little more than you’d think if you’re going out for an ice cream cone.) And while the Noe Valley and Inner Sunset locations stay open until 10 p.m., Easy Breezy told Hoodline
that the foot traffic that 18th Street gets means that this one will be open until 11 or midnight. This is especially advantageous if you want a place to hang out on a bench and scope out babes that isn’t Starbucks or a gay bar. Just sayin’.
