Dallas has plenty of frozen yogurt chains, but a newcomer called YaYa Yogurt will bring the city its first dessert shop focused on Tex-Mex flavors.

Signage is up in the window, and construction permits have been issued for the space at 408 North Bishop Avenue. A Facebook page established for the yogurt shop indicates that it will serve a dozen rotating flavors of yogurt, including jalapeno, honey, and horchata, and more than 30 different fruit and candy toppings. Ice cream will also be on the menu, in flavors like chocolate Abuelita (Mexican hot chocolate) and strawberry.

YaYa faces some stiff competition for dessert enthusiasts in the Bishop Arts District, which is also home to much-lauded pie shop Emporium Pies. Miami ice cream shop Azucar also recently opened in the neighborhood, and serves at least a few flavors similar to YaYa’s planned offerings, including ice creams spiked with sweet corn and guava. To be sure, the neighborhood’s sweet scene will soon be much more exciting.

A peek inside the space indicates that construction has not yet begun on YaYa Yogurt’s space. Eater has reached out to the forthcoming sweet shop for more details on its arrival.
