These Main Line area eateries serve açai and smoothie bowls, both of which are fantastic ways to start your day with a boost of energy.

Offering a unique and decidedly Instagrammable twist to the traditional smoothie, smoothie bowls are the perfect option to add energy to your day. Açai bowls, an offshoot of the smoothie bowl, consist of blended fruit and are typically served with an array of toppings. Jazzed up with everything from coconut shavings to drizzles of honey, these concoctions are a health food staple. The açai berry specifically has energy-boosting and immune-stimulating properties.

Here are some spots around the Main Line to give the nutrient-filled bowls a try.

Clean Juice has a far more focused menu than many other açai specialty locations. Its limited options lead to a more distinct identity and it shows. Since the brand started in Birkdale, NC in 2015, there have been nearly 200 franchised storefronts opened in just the past six years alone. Its signature peanut butter, almond butter and/or honey drizzle atop all of its offerings provides a twist to the traditional açai bowl.

Playa Bowls

150 E Lancaster Ave., Villanova; 22 S High St, West Chester


After getting its start with a pair of blenders and a patio table on the Jersey Shore in Belmar, this brand has gone national, expanding to nearly 200 locations nationwide. Playa Bowls focuses heavily on pineapple, as indicated by its branding. Mirroring its expansive growth, the chain offers a wide variety of bowls and smoothies from which to choose. With 40 different bowls and over a dozen smoothie options, Playa Bowls ensures every visitor finds something to their liking.

Like most other eateries serving açai bowls, Vitality was founded in the 2010s, but they were one of the earlier adopters to the trend. Opened for the first time in 2011 out of San Ramon, CA, Vitality Bowls has expanded to over 100 locations, with a storefront in King of Prussia serving the Main Line. Offering wraps, salads, juices, smoothies and of course, açai bowls, Vitality Bowls serves all-organic, made fresh items built with so many different powerhouse foods like açai, graviola and pitaya.
