I have a serious sweet tooth. And now that it’s (finally) warm outside, I am taking full advantage of the multiple ice cream and frozen yogurt shops in Harvard Square. Lizzy’s makes a delicious mint chocolate chip ice cream, and I love the summertime fruit flavors at J.P. Licks, especially the peach and strawberry.
But if I’m down at the south end of Harvard Square – and craving a light, bright treat to perk me up – I usually end up at Berryline.
Berryline (like both J.P. Licks and Lizzy’s) is a locally owned business. It was started by two MIT grads who decided they would rather make frozen yogurt than pursue careers in molecular biology. (Given the choice, I’d go with fro-yo, too.)
Berryline offers a rotating menu of four flavors (their original tart flavor is always on offer), a variety of toppings (including fruit, sprinkles and homemade baked treats), and a bright, whimsical atmosphere. (Aren’t those the cheeriest little cups of fro-yo you’ve ever seen?)
I’ve tried several flavors and liked them, but I always come back to the original – the perfect mixture of tart and sweet. I like it best with fresh fruit and rainbow sprinkles. (Because apparently I am six years old inside.) If you’re in Cambridge this summer and looking for a no-guilt sweet treat, I highly recommend Berryline. (I’ll join you!)
*The good folks at Berryline have no idea who I am – I just like this place and wanted to share it with you.
