Hayes Valley, fro-yo is coming to you! Loving Cup, a San Francisco frozen yogurt and rice pudding shop in Russian Hill, will open a Hayes Valley store in the old Taste Tea (RIP Taste! That place was awesome and we were sad to see it go). Eater SF reported today that the new Loving Cup location – which will seat about 20 and have several tables – will also serve housemade organic ice cream and sorbet. This means Smitten, located on Octavia in Proxy, has some new frozen dessert competition in the 'hood. The new Loving Cup is scheduled to open on April 15.
Speaking of Smitten: For East Bay fans of the liquid nitrogen-concocted ice cream, Smitten will be opening its newest location in Oakland. According to Smitten's website, the opening date of this new location, on College Ave. in Rockridge, is still TBA.
