Yummy smoothie

I wanted to try the acai bowl after reading reviews. The problem is my husband is diabetic and there is nothing really that works for him. We did stop and I for a yummy smoothie. I hope to get there tomorrow for an acai bowl for breakfast.

Had an awesome smoothie after walking around the town. Made with wonderful, fresh ingredients. Sit on the bar and look out over the ocean!

My daughter had eaten at their San Francisco location and was eager to try the original in Kona. Frankly, my husband and I had no idea what to expect but.....she has a pretty great palate so we tagged along. What a wonderful way to start the day! We each ordered an acai bowl which I would describe as a tart... More

After so many full hot breakfasts it was a very nice change. A bit of an odd location with the reception up stairs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A great selection of healthy bowls of yogurt, fruit, berries, granola etc. the smoothies are first rate as well. Some seating, upstairs has the better view. Enjoy.

The bowls all start with Acai frozen yogurt and then you can choose from the list of ready-made recipes or make up your own. You can also add extra toppings. The place is quite small and does not have a lot of seating, but it’s right on the beach so it’s a non-issue. We went on two different occasions and... More

Never had an acai bowl before Hawai'i, and we loved it. We went here three times during our week on the Big Island. loved it, loved it. We tried acai bowls on Oahu after, and they were good, but not quite as good. We even tried making them when we got home - and, well, we're working on perfecting it.... More

I thought I died and went to heaven when I discovered this place. The healthy and oh-so-delicious fruit bowls with acai base are absolutely scrumptious! I am so glad I don't have to totally blow my gluten and dairy free meals when I'm on vacation any longer. Thank you Basik from the bottom of my vegetarian heart!
