There sure is a lot of frozen yogurt in this world, and now that the second Easy Breezy is open in the Inner Sunset, there is even more. (The first one is on 24th Street in Noe Valley, but has fewer machines and therefore fewer varieties at any given moment). Froyo is arguably a trend that crested long ago, but unlike the equally cutesy cupcakes, it's got a little room to grow just yet.

Exhibit A is Easy Breezy's custard. Creamier than most other frozen yogurts, which tend towards the airy and slightly fake-tasting, it's rather a steal at $0.61/ounce and also manages to make vanilla sexy in an age of Thai chili lime and, uh, gerbil offal confit. It also has one other advantage over the haute cuisine ice creams like Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous or Humphry Slocombe, which is breadth of topping choice. Vanilla custard pairs well with everything, and Easy Breezy easily has the most, ranging from gummy worms to boba tea balls to sweet vinegar to plain old crumbled Oreos.

Whether or not this all makes Easy Breezy more kid-friendly (as I suspect it does) will be left to the determination of anyone holding the hand of a screaming toddler. But it's definitely worthwhile to vanilla-phile adults, too.

Easy Breezy, 718 Irving St.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
