Silver Spoon Review

With the remnants of Tropical Nonsense Danny having passed us by on Sunday, the sun came out and forced me to leave my humble cave in search of...something. Who knows what, but I ended up wandering around most of Clinton Hill and Fort Greene over the course of the morning. After a while I started to get a hankerin' for ice cream or iced coffee or something, and even poked my head into Bittersweet, but didn't get anything. Passed by the General Greene too, but didn't get anything.

What did I finally get? Frozen Yogurt at a place I'd never actually been, Silver Spoon on Fulton St. It's another of those places I've passed by a few dozen times but never actually set foot in. That all changed on Sunday when I, well, set foot in it.

The place feels a bit like a spa, which is odd. Calling their menu sparse might be a big generous, but they're certainly focused. They have 5 or 6 flavors of frozen yogurt along with a bevy of various toppings. They also serve coffee.

...and that's pretty much it. I wasn't feeling cheeky, so I got a medium pineapple frozen yogurt (they had mango on the menu but apparently it wasn't available). The staff was friendly and prompt, and I handed over my $5.90 in exchange for my yogurt.

Yes, you read that right. $5.90 for a medium, and to be honest, they don't go to any length to fill the cup they give you. If I'd wanted toppings? That would have run me an additional couple of dollars. That's getting dangerously close to $10 for a little snack, no?

In any event, it was really, really good frozen yogurt, so no complaints there. But I'm not sure how often I'll stop in. I mean, I guess it's not *that* much more than $4.50 for two scoops at Bittersweet, but it really felt like a lot. It was good, but I'm not sure it was that good. Still, on a gorgeous, warm day the place was pretty barren, so maybe I'm not alone.

Do you know about Pinkberry?

I do. They're just in Manhattan, right? I wasn't aware there was a Brooklyn location.
