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

Smoothie in a tall bowl, and full of fresh fruit and nuts. Refreshing change from traditional sugar laden smoothies made with a mix. Large size is $15, but I made a meal out of it, took it to the beach and held me all day!

I'd never had an acai bowl (or acai in general) before I went to Kona. I read some great reviews about this place and decided to try it out and I'm very glad I did. It was delicious! Everything is freshly made and the portions are suprisingly large. The acai base in all of the bowls is like a sorbet,... More

Beyond having to stop at a restaurant for breakfast, this place has the freshest acai and fruit bowls! This was our first stop on our trip back to Kona and I hope to keep visiting on our future trips! Perfect location/walk from our rental condo...never move!

I love acai bowls! Bonus...this place has a view! Very grass roots with minimal seating. But the bowls use local fruit and made fresh when you order. $7 for a small bowl, $9 for large bowl...and it is large! Very filling. A great way to start your day!

Enjoyed my breakfast bowl thoroughly. A bit crowded the day we went but still was able to enjoy a beach view . Extremely tasty and healthy. A bit surprising if you don't realize that some of the bowl is going to be like a smoothie . Excellent fast service.

Great for breakfast or really any time because the cold acai (ah-sah-ee) is like a dessert. If you are new to these like we were, it's like sorbet at the bottom.

Definitely good...but didn't feel satisfying as a hangover breakfast. It's more of a post-morning workout place to eat :)
