Back in the year 2010, Swirl@rt started off as a successful Specialty Cafe specializing in 100% fat free Premium Self Serve froyo (frozen yogurt - with live Lactobacillus bulgaricus culture, served in various flavors) and cupcakes.

In early 2013, Swirl@rt Cafe underwent a makeover with changes in the venue, concept and menu - the four partners in the management team injected a lot of new ideas to expand the business, incorporating a Fusion and Western Cuisine into the menu on top of the existing froyo (frozen yogurt) selection.

  • 4 Appetizers, 
  • 6 Salads, 
  • 13 Mains, 
  • 7 Pastas,

5. Natural/artificial flavoring e.g. fruit and fruit extracts, nuts, cocoa, vanilla, etc.
6.  Natural/artificial coloring,
