I had never tried kefir before, and I was missing out! The staff here was great. My husband and I went twice during our week in chicago for breakfast. The blood orange kefir with pineapple was amazing! Their fresh cut fruits are to die for.

Our cafes serve frozen kefir, a tasty treat with the same tang and creamy texture of froyo plus more than double the probiotics. It's delicious and you can feel good about. We also serve signature smoothies, parfaits, and fresh-pressed juices.
