For many, Swirl Frozen Yogurt in San Anselmo’s Red Hill Shopping Center has been a popular go-to destination for enjoying a refreshing treat after a baseball game, soccer match or just to simply satisfy a sweet tooth. Since 2011, the inviting fro-yo favorite has been serving up a host of delicious flavors to countless happy families.
In 2020 longtime Marin residents Alice Mead and Rick Flaster and their children, Justine and Aaron, bought the business and remain committed to continuing the same community-minded practices Swirl has been known for throughout the years. The family generously supports the San Anselmo Library and Ross Valley School District (among others) with coupons & gift certificates for their multiple kids’ programs.
It's mostly daughter and manager, Justine who is at the register ringing up sales for a choice of 10 rotating flavors of self-serve frozen yogurt. The wide range of froyo options include everything from dairy free and nonfat to vegan choices. There are 50 toppings including whipped cream, hot marshmallow sauce, fresh fruit, hot fudge, and gummy bears.
Popular Fro-yo Flavors include:
Chocolate and Vanilla combo
Yellow Cake Batter
If you feel like shaking things up a bit, you're in luck! Swirl's Froyo Shakes are popular with both parents and kids alike.
Popular Froyo Shakes include:

Fun Fact: in the summertime, Swirl gets its fruits from the local farmers market, and they always try to choose organic berries.
Shave ice is also now on the menu on weekends. It's the perfect post little league game treat, or when you need a tasty pick-me-up after completing a long hike or bike ride.
Along with the kid-in-a-candy-store vibe are two wide screen TV’s featuring happy Swirl customers enjoying their favorite flavors! Customers can send the owners their photos and may even see themselves on the big screen.
It's not just families who love Swirl. The charming froyo shop was recently named Best Frozen Yogurt in Marin by the Pacific Sun.
So, the next time you want a sweet treat—stop by Swirl and say Hi to Justine and Alice who will be more than happy to put a smile on your face!
