Who doesn't love a delicious, classic açaí bowl? I'll be the first to admit that when I first came to St. Louis, I was worried I would miss my favorite fruity treat. Would I find the açaí bowls in St. Louis good enough to satisfy my cravings? I didn't think I would. However, the city has proved me wrong. I have discovered that there are many different places that offer amazing açaí bowls to fulfill my never-ending need for açaí. Now I've compiled a list of some of my favorites so that you can try them out, too.

1. Rush Bowls

These bowls are without-a-doubt my favorites in St. Louis. Rush Bowls offers numerous different toppings and flavors, but my go-to is their classic Beach Bowl. Each smoothie bowl comes filled-to-the-brim with fruit, honey, some spectacular granola, and whatever else you decide to add. As an additional topping, I highly recommend ordering their homemade peanut butter. 

2. Hello Juice and Smoothies

Hello Juice and Smoothies is located in what I would consider to be the most aesthetically pleasing, well-decorated venue on this list. The natural and light hardwood floors, along with the many beautiful plants, make it the perfect place for an Instagram photoshoot. Not to mention the fact that the açaí bowls are pretty delicious, too. And here's an added bonus: the menu changes seasonally, so you know the ingredients are always fresh, and you won't have the chance to get bored.

3. First Watch

While smoothie bowls may not be among its staple breakfast items, First Watch serves up a killer, seasonal açaí bowl. The bowl is accompanied by a side of multi-grain toast and almond butter. Not to mention the fact that First Watch has something for everyone, making it a great place to go with your friends, especially if some people don't want a smoothie bowl (plus, I've heard wonderful things about there avocado toast). 

4. Vitality Bowls 

Kind of like First Watch, Vitality Bowls doesn't just serve smoothie bowls, they offer a multitude of other nutritious meals. But, the bowls are in the name, and I'd definitely recommend giving them a try. Although I've loved every bowl and every nutritious snack that I've had here, I'd say the Detox Bowl is an absolute must-try. This classic bowl is packed with delicious flavors and good-for-you superfoods like goji berries and flax seeds. But don't let its name and ingredients deter you. I promise that this is a healthful treat you'll actually want to finish.

5. Juice Bar

Juice Bar is a pretty reliable choice for açaí lovers. Although it may not be my go-to place, I know I can always count on it for an açaí bowl that gets the job done. The amazing smoothies, sandwiches, and salads are also an added bonus when ordering from Juice Bar.  But did I mention that their bowls are picture-perfect? Every Instagram-lover will appreciate the açaí bowls' presentation. 

So, there you have it. If you are ever unsure of where to go for an açaí bowl in St. Louis, look no further. Whether you want something classic from Rush Bowls, a good-ol'-fashioned Instagram perfect aesthetic at Hello Juice, or something in between, you'll definitely find the right açaí bowl place for you on this list. What are you waiting for? Go out there and rejoice in the miracle that is açaí. I know I can't wait to get another bowl.
