Since its opening in 2011, Huddles on Main Street has become a popular place for students to hang out. Not only does it provide a welcoming atmosphere to the customers, it also serves frozen yogurt, complete with over 50 different toppings to choose from.
“It tastes just like ice cream, and you can top it with all the different toppings like hot fudge or crumbled cakes,” said sophomore Xiaowen “Jada” Zhao.
According to store manager William Valdez, at least 30 students visit Huddles on an average school day, especially in the evenings after school.
“It’s a pretty upbeat atmosphere,” Valdez said. “A lot of students come here since it’s close to the school. There’s a pool area in the back too (for residents). It’s a really popular area—especially (since it’s) in the middle of downtown.”
Although Valdez said the most popular frozen yogurt flavor is Cake Batter, Zhao said her favorite flavor is Cookies & Cream.
The restaurant itself seats four people per table, with a maximum of around 50 seats with additional seating outside. Stationed around the room are flat-screen TVs which are turned to sports channels and a small bar area for customers. According to Valdez, yogurt costs 45 cents per ounce, and there is a “buy nine yogurts, get one free” offer.
Store hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
