“Great Acai Bowls after yoga at Yoga Soup!”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

This is a simple little place offering nourishing Acai Bowls. Various options of fruits and veggies and grains available. I head over after taking classes at Yoga Soup. Great little mix of cafes and shops over here in this corner of SB. Really enjoy it. BYB is a gem of a place.

“Yummy, healthy, fresh, Yummy”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

What an awesome find! It is probably the best stuff on earth! Literally guilt free eating because it's healthy and environmentally friendly. The price was not as bad either because their "small" bowl is actually more than good enough to share. We had the Berry Bowl with a splash of yogurt, bee pollen, hemp, and whole bunch of other add-ons, and we were pretty happy with what we've created. Staff were cute and so friendly. It was so fresh and healthy, I wish there was one closer to where I live.

“Yummy Acai Bowls”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Just make sure you know what you're getting... my husband had a bad allergic reaction to the goji berries in one of the bowls. It wasn't their fault but we ended up at the ER! My yogurt bowl was really good and it's a fun spot to pick up some breakfast.

“Excellent fast (healthy) food!”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Fruit bowls are great. Relatively fast(they chop and blend while you wait - not pre-packaged) and friendly service. You need to have a good appetite to order other than a small bowl. Excellent value for money. This is a fast food, cafe style place to eat and run, or just hang out. No frills, but excellent quality!

“Great healthy treat!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

They use the freshest fruits and give you a good sized portion. The bowls are really healthy treats, all the fruit is sliced and diced per order, not spooned out of tubs. Close to State Street and a nice treat if you are walking around seeing the sights.
