Great acai bowls!

My first tries of acai bowls were in this place, for breakfast. I really appreciated the flavours and their freshness. The place was convenient and nice with a brasilian atmosphere and staff was friendly.

Pros: fresh and plenty of flavours, healthy food, friendly staff, convenient and nice place

One of the best smoothies I've ever had. They have a variety of acai smoothies and they can make them vegan. The atmosphere was relaxed like a coffee shop, and the person who took my order was really nice. The place had a good vibe.
