I walked here everyday from work on my way home. It is always empty so you are quickly tended to unless its a busy day like opening day. Staff is nice and gives you a discount from time to time. I am still unsure if their yogurt is just ice cream but it is still delicious.

Rita's in Ephrata offers all the cold desserts you expect to find at this chain's stores--- with good service. Love their fruit ices. Reasonable prices for a good, cold treat Spring - Fall. Highly recommend.

I went to visit my family, I do not have a Rita's in my hometown I wish I did. I loved the flavor selection and was very pleased with what I got. The price is decent for what you get. I can't wait to go there again!!!

Awesome refreshing ices, blendinis, mistos, ice cream, and so much more! Coupons are the best deal and the place is just a great place to visit this summer!
