Working professional with yogurt I just knew, that I need to experienced these yogurt cafes on my own body and in my very own mouth and stomach. When some of my American colleagues heard about my plans, they wanted to join in on my "yogurt voyage", which I managed to convince them about was a "bad idea", as I need time to re-adjust to a time difference of 6 hours. They got my message, so I could walk New York thin with my stomach filled with yogurt !!!!
I started my "yogurt voyage" at the Dannon yogurt cafe called "The Yogurt Culture Co" located on Park Avenue. Here you can influence the actual yogurt, which you will be eating, as you can have the yogurt either as yogurt or as frozen yogurt, which is the first selection step.
Naturally I decided to choose the real stuff in form of Greek yogurt (with fat) for a yogurt parfait. When the next selection step was, which fruit puree should be mixed into the yogurt. Being feed up with strawberry yogurt I went for the white peach. A small layer of the puree in filled into the bottom of the cup, and the rest of the fruit puree with some honey is mixed with the yogurt in a bowl, before a yogurt layer is filled on top in the serving cup.

The yogurt parfait is served in a plastic cup with a plastic spoon. The price for such a yogurt parfait is 6.85 $. And this volume of approx 400 ml really filled up my stomach serving as an evening meal.
My overall impression of the Dannon yogurt cafe remains me of a Starbucks cafe with it´s brownish interior and rusticness.

A cup of yogurt cost 5.50 € incl a clean glass to bring with you home.
In the Chobani yogurt cafe, where are no tables or chairs as in the Dannon yogurt cafe, so you are sitting on the window still, while you eat your yogurt. I got the feeling of a chic cafe at the Chobani yogurt cafe.
My favourite was the Chobani yogurt cafe due to the look of the cafe, the look of the served yogurt and that I got a glass.
