SoYo Frozen Yogurt on Burlingon’s Pine Street may have kicked off a trend. The Queen City will soon get its second spot exclusively for frozen-yogurt treats. According to Meredith Lynn, director of public relations for Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, the national chain will open its first Vermont location on Church Street in April. Neither Church Street Marketplace nor Orange Leaf could confirm an address.

The Oklahoma-based yogurt purveyor boasts close to 70 different flavors, including quirky offerings such as Taro, Wedding Cake and Honeydew.


Waterbury fans of Thai food would be well advised to hurry to Ocha Thai Restaurant for a final taste of softshell crab salad and honey duck. According to the restaurant’s website, it will close on February 17. Its sister restaurant, the newly renovated Royal Orchid Thai Restaurant in Montpelier, will honor any unredeemed gift certificates after Ocha’s closure.
