Acai bowls in SF?

  • 8

I feel in love with acai bowls on my first trip to Hawaii and love getting them when I'm on the Islands, but they're sorrily lacking here in SF. Where in the city can I get an acai bowl?

      Thanks! Have you had their bowls? If so, what were your impressions?

      I've also found [via Yelp and Foursquare] that Pastel Do Brazil and Judahlicious have them as well. Anyone found them elsewhere (food trucks count)?

        I haven't tried the bowls at Blue Hawaii; I usually opt for the more unhealthy choices in the area. But their online menu looks pretty good, though expensive (high rent neighborhood).

          It is expensive, especially considering the actual size of the bowls. I've joked about opening an acai bowl food cart; I wonder how much profit margin there is on a $10.95 large acai bowl…

        Not anywhere near as good as what you get in Hawaii. In my opinion.

          Seriously. The pictures I've seen of the acai bowls at Blue Hawaii, Judahlicious and Pastel Brazil all look weak and inauthentic compared to what you get in Hawaii. My idea for an authentic acai bowl business is looking more promising by the day…

      3. Judahlicious in the Outer Sunset makes great ones.

        1. Pastel Do Brazil has them; I've never tried their bowl, so I can't speak to how good they are.
