Respond to Review of Basik Acai
Review: I was skeptical that a bowl full of fruit, granola and acai would be filling enough breakfast for me because I'm not crazy about sweet breakfasts, but this place BLEW me away. The acai bowls are like a smoothie you eat with a spoon, with big chunks of fruit and other mix-ins to make it very hearty. And, surprisingly, it's just the right blend of savory and sweet, even with honey drizzled over it. These bowls were so good that my husband and I have in fact re-created them at home. The restaurant is just upstairs from Snorkel Bob's, across the street from the Royal Kona Resort. We were on the Big Island during Labor Day weekend and it seemed like the place kept strange hours, but eventually we caught it when it was open. The teen-agers running the place were pretty on the ball and very friendly. Seating is mostly outdoor, either on the ground floor or upstairs at the bar. Drink options are limited but they freely offer cups of cold water to customers.
