Açai bowls make me feel like I should be sitting on a beach in Hawaii, with a flower in my hair, sea-breeze and all. Then I remember that I live in New York and go to school in DC. But that still doesn’t mean I can’t get that same summer feeling on the East Coast.
Us here at Spoon have gathered the go-to places to get a delicious and Insta-worthy açai bowl on the East Coast, from Maine all the way down to Florida. Just another reason why the West Coast is not the best coast #sorrynotsorry.
Oh, and FYI, it’s pronounced ah-sigh-eee not ah-kai.
Maine: Maine Squeeze Juice Cafe in Portland
Vermont: Juicebox in Burlington
This farm-to-table raw juicery and smoothie bar not serves up açai bowls, but also pitaya bowls, coconut bowls, and mango bowls. That’s a whole lotta bowls, people.
New Hampshire: Secret Spot in Hampton
These bowls are over-flowing with toppings, which is just how we like it. And that granola? Who can say no to granola?
Massachusetts: Jugos in Boston
You see the way those strawberries are lined up? That’s what Beyoncé was talking about in her song, Formation. #hotsauceinmybagswag
Rhode Island: Cool Beans Cafe in Narragansett
Technically, açai is a berry, not a bean, but we don’t really care. These bowls are the perfect blend of sweet and creamy.

As Lizzie McGuire says, “Have you ever seen such a beautiful
New Jersey: Playa Bowls in Belmar
There is nutella on this bowl. I repeat. THERE IS NUTELLA ON THIS BOWL.
Delaware: Nectar Cafe and Juice Bar in Lewes
This cafe also serves delicious cocktails, so you can get your #drank on while you enjoy this beauty. It’s really a win-win.
Maryland: Pure Raw Juice Bar in Baltimore
The toppings on these bowls are endless. Because you can never have enough hemp seeds or bee pollen, apparently?
Washington DC: Jaco Juice & Taco Bar in Georgetown
Virginia: South Block Juice Co. in Arlington
Along with these bad boys, the juice cleanses from South Block are great. After a long and hard three days on one, I would know.
North Carolina: Clean Juice Bar in Charlotte
The name of this place reminds us why we love açai bowls – they make us feel so fresh, so clean.
South Carolina: gogogreens on Sullivan’s Island
Georgia: Kale Me Crazy in Atlanta
We love the play on words in this restaurant’s name almost as much as we love its açai bowls. With locations all over the Atlanta area, there’s açai for everyone, everywhere.
Florida: Under the Mango Tree in Miami
This place is extremely cozy and even puts its açai in cute printed bowls. What more can we ask for?
