A separate branch of the same company, Tamara Smoothies is located just a few blocks away from Tamara Yogurt. Their smoothies are great, but it’s worth making a special trip for the banana ice coffee, a truly special treat. Ice coffee, contrary to its name, is not simply chilled coffee with ice; it is a mix between a slushy and a coffee-flavored milkshake. The banana complements the ice coffee into a distinctive sweet treat.
