I can’t say much more than that it was totally amazing... I ate one bowl and I just wanted another one (but of course I could not eat one more due to fullness) 😂

I ordered an acai bowl with almond milk which cost $10, so I expected it to be pretty good. Overall, the acai base was just average and there was not much fruit. The granola and honey was the best part. I've had much better acai...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
