Tartberry Frozen Yogurt

The top-rated frozen yogurt shop in the area is Tartberry Frozen Yogurt downtown.  Your kids will love this colorful place with the brightly-colored artsy decor.  Parking can be a problem in downtown Portland.  The best off-street parking is at one of the Smart Park garages (the nearest one is at 730 SW 10th).
