Funkiberry Opens Up On Avenue U, Ocean Avenue



Is frozen yogurt the new sushi? Well, I guess we’re not quite there yet. But another frozen yogurt, this one called Funkiberry, has opened up at 2001-A Avenue U, right on the corner of Ocean Avenue.

The location used to be a pharmacy.

Good luck, Funkiberry!

    I miss the hot dog place that used to be there.

    • It was small, but it was comfortable.

        And that old lady that worked there was nice.

      Wow……….you just ignited memories in my head!!!

      There was an elderly lady who worked there………

      Awesome Knishes too!!!!

      • It was the knishes I went for. And the people were so very nice.

        I was told that they wanted to retire and their kids were busy with careers. Too bad they didn’t try to sell the business.

          That’s sad. It was a good place.

          I grew up a few blocks away and I remember the elderly woman used to split open a hot potato knish and then split a hot dog and place it inside the knish for me. It was the ultimate frank-in-blanket, slathered in deli mustard…delicious memories!! They were a lovely couple and it was a full-service, old school kosher deli.

          • The scent of splitting open a knish is definitely heaven,

        I used to eat there (like clockwork) every Saturday afternoon about 10 years ago. Great hot dogs & knishes and Stewarts Cream Soda.

      I loved the hotdog place too — but I don’t remember an elderly lady who worked there. There was always a red-headed guy with male pattern baldness and a moustache whenever my parents and I went there.

      Hmmm … I recall that as one of the last Jewish delis left in Brooklyn; used to buy corned beef, etc., sandwiches in addition to knishes. Did it later become just a hot dog place?

    these yogurt places are popping up all over the neighborhood, just like cell phone stores

    • ShadowLock

      Believe or not, They are much healthier then cell phones :D

      • They do taste better than cell phones.

    Wasn’t that hot dog place a full blown deli? I had pastrami sandwiches in there. The old lady there may as well have been my own bubbe.

    Wither the kosher deli. Wither indeed.

    • SBBol

      Yeah, that’s my memory too, one of the last of its breed.

  • tinafg

    mmmm. Was just there. Had vanilla yogurt with honey and blueberries. It was awesome! And I’m a chocoholic!

  • Old Schwarzer

    That used to be “The Deli Corner” before the few russian “Antekas” that preceded it. That was a much better deli than Jay & Lloyd”s
