Playa Bowls, NJ's Original Açaí Bowl Shop, has finally reached the state of Maryland (located at 7147 A Baltimore Ave, College Park, MD) and we couldn't be more excited. For those of you that don't know, Playa Bowls started in a small beach town on the Jersey Shore by surfers and beach bums Abby Taylor and Rob Guiliani in 2014 in a literal cart with two blenders and a freezer. Today, it has grown into a major company with 60+ locations, while still keeping the mom and pop vibe. 

The Menu

The menu can definitely be overwhelming, but it's easy and simple to understand! There are several different bases, spanning from Açaí to Chia, and smoothies and juices so everyone can really find what they like!  Açaí bowls are my personal favorite and because I'm an 8th Ave girl in Jersey, my pick is the 8th Ave + Coconut Flakes + Cacao Nibs + Chia Seeds! Some other fan favorites are the Nutella Bowl and Electric Mermaid. 

Playa Acai & Coconut ~ Why are we so different?

Playa Bowls is different because we have our VERY OWN AÇAÍ & COCONUT. Our Açaí comes from a farm in Brazil that supports local farmers, while our coconut is from Thailand. Both are then shipped to NJ and then delivered directly to our stores. These aspects of the business are extremely different because we are supporting local farmers while delivering the freshest and most top-notch products.
