We love Active culture and go often. Frozen yogurt is fun but be sure to try an Acai bowl, so fresh.

I had the acai bowl - Hanalei - acai, banana, granola, honey, coconut - awesome! This is also a yogurt shop - but a natural, healthy option for breakfast

Being a San Clemente local, we were super happy a healthy food choice moved into town, We frequent this place after surfing and often order for delivery. They have juices, breakfast food, yogurt, and a whole host of other healthy choices.
