I was visiting Yuma, AZ, and I Googled tiki bar. This frozen yogurt place kept appearing in my results (but sadly, no tiki bars). Very tiki themed... Good frozen yogurt too! Anyone else been to this place? I believe its a chain.

Anyone know of an actual tiki bar in Yuma?

I'm about 60 miles from Yuma. They have some left over Googie but no tiki bars as far as I know.

Gotta appreciate the effort! This is as Tiki as a frozen yoghurt place will ever get, me thinks.

And the spreading of Tiki to such urban staples as frozen yoghurt is a boon to the movement!

I didn't see any rum flavored yogurt, but they had a big selection. It's one of those build-your-own sundae kind of places. Very tasty! It's just tucked away into a large strip mall. I've been to that mall several times and never noticed, until the Google search lead the way. Cool little place. I believe it's a franchise too.

I forgot to mention that I asked the owner about the tiki, and she said it was hand-carved, but not locally... It was supplied by the franchising company. I wonder who carves these tikis?

Cute wahines?


The Yogurt Hut doesn't seem to have any tikis but in all fairness, they didn't call themselves "tiki".
