Editorial Review

Austin Powers would feel right at home in Caliyogurt's Adams Morgan location, which draws long lines of bar hoppers on weekends. The space is brightly lighted and decked out with mod furniture, flowery light fixtures and lime- and mustard-colored walls. Expect the usual offerings of plain, green-tea and fruit-flavored yogurt, along with the option to create a smoothie. Each week, the shop rotates in a special flavor (such as pomegranate, pink grapefruit or mango).

Plain yogurt here tastes slightly less tart than other varieties on the market. Toppings such as berries, mochi and Cocoa Pebbles cereal are available, but it was refreshing to see shavings of butterscotch, whole pecans and chocolate-covered sunflower seeds, too. (Plain yogurt is 5 ounces, $2.95; 8 ounces, $3.95; 12 ounces, $5.75. Flavored yogurt costs $3.50, $4.50 and $6.35, respectively. Toppings are 95 cents each, $1.45 for two and $1.75 for three.)
