Emily Young | November 4, 2021

The Gold Coast has fast become an acai bowl dreamland; from plain jane to cherry ripe bowls and coco-fluff, there is a flavour for any craving.

Summer is the perfect excuse to get out and taste your way around the Coast. Need some inspiration? Look no further. We’ve put together our top pick acai bowls from across the Gold Coast. These drool-worthy treats are sure to hit the spot.

 

Niche & Co

From your original favourite acai bowl with banana, cold pressed apple juice and seasonal fruit with macadamia muesli, to the specialty super blend either salted caramel or a vegan snickers. Niche & Co is guaranteed to fit the spot no mater your acai bowl craving!

 

Rafiki by the Sea

A true hidden gem, this hole in the wall along Hedges Ave is one of the best underrate acai bowls on the Gold Coast. Served in a generous bowl, covered with all the best fruits (including passionfruit), nuts, seeds, and muesli – you can’t go past this acai bowl treat.

 

Helen’s Heavenly Bulk Foods

An oldie but a goldie, Helens is a trusted favourite among locals. The giant acai and smoothie bowl menu can be intimidating but every bowl is as good as the one before. Our favourite is the good old fashion original with all the trimmings.

The Salt Mill

With locations in Currumbin and Kingscliff, The Salt Mill is the perfect spot to grab an acai bowl and head across the road to have breakfast by the beach. If you love a few cacao nibs you won’t be disappointed by the generous topping options!

 

Cardamom Pod

If we are what we eat, then I’d happily take a Cardamom Pod acai bowl for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Beautifully presented, this acai bowl is a treat for the eyes and the tummy. You can choose from their Pod Special complete with blue spirulina crème and protein ball, or the snickers acai for a bit of a treat.

 

Goji Granola Bar

Want an acai bowl and an ice cream in one? Then you’ve come to the right place! Build your acai bowl with a topping of a whipped Coco Fluff of you choosing. This acai bowl is picture perfect, but snap quick because it won’t last long!

Down 2 Earth Cafe

If you love a bit of choice with your acai bowl, you’ll love the guys at Down 2 Earth café, who have some of the tastiest acai bowls on the Gold Coast! Piled high with chocolate pieces (not nibs, big chunky pieces), shredded coconut and chewy cherry, their cherry ripe acai bowl is awesome.

 

Bear Boy Espresso

Are you a sweet tooth? Then check out the honey coconut and co-yo ice cream acai bowl at Bear Boy Espresso topped with mango puree. Feeling something a little more salty? Check out their Curly Wurly acai bowl that showcases cacao granola, salted caramel and mouth-watering vegan chocolate mousse.

 

Bunji Cafe

Pure acai, not diluted by the usual apple juice or coconut water, makes this acai bowl the perfect texture and flavour. They add seasonal fruits, muesli, and shredded coconut to the bowl, which is sure to impress. Bunji Café is a local favourite.
