New Iberia has a new spot to satiate the summer cravings for something cold.
On May 21 Orange Leaf is hosting its official grand opening. Lafayette’s Sophi P. Cakes will be there serving cake, a balloon artist will be there from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and there are coloring contests for different age groups all day. From noon to 6 p.m. if you guess the weight of your yogurt correctly, it’s free.
Orange Leaf lets you choose between a few dozen flavors and even more toppings. When you check out your order is weighed and you pay by the ounce. There are several set to open in Louisiana and more are found around the country.
It is located at 718 E. Admiral Doyle Dr. next to Little Ceasar's Pizza in the College Park Center. On Fridays and Saturdays it’s open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sundays noon to 8 p.m., and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. the rest of the week.
