The coffee shop at the Lakewood YMCA is a Black Bear, but as recently as last month it had been a Forza. In fact it is still listed as a Forza on the Forza website. I took them up on their suggestion of a pumpkin, space latte (decaf) and it was a treat.
I remember when there was one Black Bear Yogurt and now there are six with four opening soon. They are all in the Puget Sound area except for the one in Yakima. This Black Bear is located at 1901 South 72nd Street, Tacoma. I wasn’t particularly hungry, but I had a French Press coffee which was most delicious and kept me up half the night (my bad!). Their website is here.
The new place of the day quest was a good excuse for visiting the Black Bear Yogurt and I’m sure glad we did. It was great. I had the peanut butter banana with chocolate sprinkles, my dear daughter had the chocolate with rainbow sprinkles and the husband had raspberry in a cone. They also had praline, vanilla and Euro Tart. They always have six flavors at a time and change about once a week. It was a really nice space with a fireplace and whimsical carved bears.
