All of us transplants to Lake Norman have a list of those special restaurants, markets, hot spots and businesses that we still miss from our prior home town or state. Mine is kind of like a “Bucket List” and as the years go by I have been checking them off one by one: Trader Joe’s, Five Guys (well, In n’ Out Burger but Five Guys is pretty darn close to it) Bed Bath and Beyond, healthy breakfast options (Daily Grind and Egg at Davidson), Whole Foods (well, the closest one is in Winston Salem but I count our Fresh Market in Cornelius), Neiman Marcus (I thought this was a priority until I realized that our casual Lake Norman lifestyle has deemed this almost obsolete), North Lake Mall.
FreshBerry Frozen Yogurt Cafe, (which is similar to PinkBerry who has several locations in Charlotte), was near the top of my daughter’s list so when I heard it had just opened in Mooresville sandwiched between Panera Bread and Starbucks on Williamson Road, we were there.
Freshberry does not serve your typical frozen yogurt that you would buy in any grocery store. Freshberry serves all natural frozen yogurt available in FreshBerry Tart, Decadent Dark Chocolate, Vanilla No Sugar Added, Acai Berry, Classic Strawberry, Mango, and Pomegranate. Plus, they have over 25 toppings available from fresh fruits and cereals to candies and nuts. They have a complete nutrition chart available.
The first time you taste FreshBerry yogurt you will notice a distinct tang. Ahhhh, this is not ice cream-like, this is the real thing. My favorite flavor is FreshBerry Tart topped with fresh kiwis, mangoes and blackberries! Although I tried their vanilla yesterday and it was delicious as well.
We have owner Matthew Ganis, who recently moved here from New York, to thank for this great addition to Lake Norman. A resident of Mooresville, his enthusiasm for his new business is evident just watching him in action while serving his customers.
So, next time you find yourself sitting at the signal at Williamson Rd and Hwy 150, make a quick turn into the Panera/Starbucks parking lot and check out FreshBerry!
BTW, my husband and I are still waiting for a Baja Fresh so let me know if one is coming our way!
