We went for late lunch on a Thursday. The place was full. The menu is on boards on the wall. You line up to give your order, then find a table and wait for your food to be served. The bowls include fruit, veggies, acai, oats, and nuts. They also make smoothies with similar ingredients. The bowls are large. Unless you are very hungry, order the medium. The food is fresh and delicious. Parking is free for the first 90 minutes.

Wish we had one of these at home - so refreshing to start the day! Enjoyed our bowls while sitting in the sunshine and the air. Definitely a highlight!

The bowls are delicious, the staff are friendly, the seating is comfortable. It's a great spot to go for a healthy snack, breakfast or lunch. The location is good, with coffee or crepes next door and the beach a 5 minute walk away. They care about the environment as well, using stamp cards to keep track of when you return a compostable bowl, bring your own bowl, or eat in and use a normal bowl. A great way to save up for a free bowl and help the environment! Not only are the bowls good (and so many options), the smoothies are also great and really filling. You have to try everything! For the CrossFitters, they also make paleo options for us. ;) Just ask!

Went here with my wife while visiting Santa Barbara. Definitely a local spot, and they deliver big time. If you are a fan of healthy Acai and Quinoa, you will be right at home here. Imagine being able to customize your very own bowl of healthy goodness, and you'll get an idea of this place. Also -- this is right next to Santa Barbara's best coffee shop, the Santa Barbara Brewing Co. Drop in to get a cup of joe, and finish off a bowl of quinoa and acai.
