Both my adult children and I enjoyed the acai bowls! We were new to this meal, but thoroughly enjoyed it. I noticed it was rated high on tripadviser, and now I see why. They are kind of pricey, but very good, and worth at least a try!!

Best place to stop by after hanging out at the beach. A small hidden gem. The acai bowls are filled with fruits and other delicious ingredients that fills your sweet cravings but wont feel too bad about eating it. The prices are pretty expensive though, so it's more of a place for a special treat.

I was so impressed by this place, I had to go back the next morning. I'd probably eat here all the time if I lived on the Big Island. It's the first time I ever even heard of acai bowls. The five-star reviews on Yelp, plus my own curiosity, convinced me to try it. Wow, amazing. Definitely a brand new... More

We love our fruit and veggies and always suffer finding healthy places to eat at for breakfast. This place was great to get our fruit fix. We stopped here 3 times on our trip and had different things each time, loved them all. Not too sweet, great power foods ingredients. Would recommend it to anyone interested in eating healthy.

I understand that quality ingredients are expensive but wow! It is definitely a yummy treat but $13.00! I guess it's something that you can partake of once in a great while because it's still really good.

OK - some sort of Brazilian breakfast thing. Turned out to be a bowl called the Banyan. Very tasty but not enough to come back to for me. Ate here once because I like Poke better - so on over to the Poke Shack. My wife loved hers and came back here three more times while I hit the Poke... More

Had the Puna bowl and another, but can't remember the name of that one. It had papaya. Both delicious. May go back tomorrow. It had an impressive line and we had to wait 15 minutes, but I understood why when we got them.

My neighbor/trainer took me into town and we often enjoyed these frosted Acai bowls sitting by the ocean across from this shop. It didn't give us a bloated, heavy feeling in our stomachs so the workout back to our home was great and refreshing. Highly recommend this place. All of my VRBO guests loved it too.

My wife wanted to have breakfast here and it was very well received. The acai bowl options all looked great on the menu, and what we ordered exceeded our expectations. The seating options were some what limited, but we could see that in advance of placing our order. We got our acai bowls to go, walked a minute, and found... More
