Backyard Bowls specializes in acai bowls as well as hot porridges, smoothies and now organic lunch bowls. Everything is organic and prepared fast – you order, wait for your name, pick up and pay. You can eat at the location or take on the go.
This trendy eatery with exposed brick walls and concrete floors is perfect for a quick, nutritious meal or on the go. You can even call in your order for pick up if you do not want to wait, but I find it fun to see them make my bowl in front of me (every step of the process is along a glass bar so you can see them do everything).
The only downside for this particular location (there are a couple of others in SoCal) is the parking – your only option is metered street parking which fills up really quick! I suggest going right when they open or really late – mid-day to afternoon is a nightmare. But Backyard Bowls is worth it so if I can muscle through the parking situation, so can you!
