Organic Meets Fro-Yo!

Active Culture

Delicious organic foods and frozen yogurt meet at the new Active Culture in Laguna Beach. The family-owned yogurt shop and café specializes in organic self-serve frozen yogurt, healthy shakes, detox smoothies as well as healthy breakfast and lunch bowls. Try the popular LB rice bowl, with organic brown rice, Italian prosciutto, goat's milk cheese, apples, and dates; or the acai bowl with Greek yogurt, acai, organic granola, flaxseed, bananas, and berries; or enjoy veggie bowls, wraps, and local Kean coffee.

In the golden age of modern brightly-colored fro-yo shops, Active Culture is homey and charming in a Spanish-style cottage that shares wall space with FOAsouth, a new satellite gallery of Festival of Arts. The current display features dramatic black and white photography by Stillman F. Sawyer from the Festival of Arts permanent art collection. A perfect Laguna spot, combining good nutrition and art under one roof.

Open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

1006 S. Coast Hwy. in Laguna Beach. 949.715.5188.
