Family friendly lunch Help yourself to taste of the summer
Angelberry is a vibrant new company run by Ryan Pasco and James Taylor, who met a couple of years ago when they were still pupils at Bristol Grammar School.
After a trip to the States, Ryan spotted the enormous rise of frozen yoghurt – or fro-yo as the Yanks call it – and returned to Britain to set about launching Angelberry with James. First, they launched a café in Hartcliffe to test the water before opening this new site slap bang in the centre of Bristol, opposite the Harbourside.
With its lime green and aubergine coloured leather banquettes and pink and white walls, Angelberry is all very cheerful and family-friendly.
Bright, airy and spotlessly clean, the self-service 'factory' comprises ten pumps dispensing different flavoured frozen yoghurts next to a counter boasting a vast number of toppings.

Once first-time visitors have got their bearings, it's quite literally child's play as you grab your empty tub, move along to the different yoghurt pumps and pull levers dispensing a Mr Whippy-like swirl of frozen yoghurt into your tub.
On this occasion, flavours included mango, strawberry, natural Greek, chocolate mousse, cherry and the more outrageous Jaffa Cake. Toppings ranged from the healthy options of fresh mango, strawberries, kiwi fruit and passion fruit to the more calorific mini fudge cubes, Maltesers, Oreos, Smarties, Mini Eggs and chocolate buttons.
Once you have created your frozen yoghurt dish, the tub is weighed by one of the staff and you can eat it in the café or take it away.
Weighing in at a third the calories of ice cream, these ice-cold desserts are a healthy, not-so-guilty treat, so long as you don't pile on too many scoops of the less healthy toppings.
We tried most of the frozen yoghurts and toppings, our favourites being the cherry and natural Greek yoghurts and the lychee and strawberry 'pobbles' (tiny edible beads filled with fruit juice).
At £1.50 per 100g, the yoghurts are sensibly priced and, again, you don't have to spend too much unless you take full advantage of the self-service system, which some might find hard to resist.
Our two modest tubs came in at around £2.75 each, although the woman in front of us in the queue had clocked up an impressive tub worth well over £5, but then she clearly had a weakness for Oreos and Mini Eggs.
