Great selection of froyo flavours and toppings; you can get a healthy treat or go mad with chocolatey toppings! If you're from London, think Samba Swirl/Frae with more variety both in terms of froyo flavours and toppings.

Went there with my family and all were exceptionally pleased. Many very tasty flavours with lots of toppings. The place was generous, allowing each of us to sample so that we could choose what we wanted. In short, this was clearly the best yogurt we had in NYC (and we tried several)

Treat yourself to the delights of frozen yoghurt. Fill your tub from a choice of 16 fantastic flavours from strawberry to salted caramel then unleash your inner child as you top it with gummy bears,Reece's pieces and other naughty treats or for the more healthy ones fresh fruit and granola chunks but remember you pay by weight so don't font...

Tasteless. Close your eyes and all you taste is the artificial flavor and sweetness. I couldn't distinguish between chocolate, nutella, or peanut butter.

Typical self-serve frozen yogurt place. It was fairly busy. Seating is on benches and ottoman types seats, no tables. There is a counter along the wall with stools - our choice. They indeed have 16 flavors of frozen yogurt. I loved the choconut, chocolate and coconut. You help yourself to any flavors you want, and add whatever toppings you want... More

So I basically moved into this 16 Handles Location. They have great staff, amazing Froyo, the freshest and best topics, and it seems so cheap! I keep piling on more and more and I've never gotten beyond 8 dollars. No other place for Froyo in NYC compares in my opinion.

Summer in New York always means a nice Frozen Yogurt where I kid myself that eating Yogurt loaded with yummy toppings is better for me...Last Summer I discovered 16Handles which was located just 1 shop away from my old favourite Pinkberry, which fell out of favor with its stingy toppings...Here was a place that let me try whatever I wanted...

I am a bit of a frozen yogurt maniac and get one every day when I am in NYC or anywhere in CA. 16 handles stood out for me for their options on toppings. It's not just crushed brownies from a box and frozen (and thawed) cheesecake, their toppings actually had flavour. And the fruits also seemed more freshly cut... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
