For the uninitiated, acai bowls are thick smoothies of acai berry topped with fruits and clusters of granola. It might be the hot trend for the beach hopping hipster, but don’t knock it till you try it! Nestled on a street corner in Bondi, the part juice bar, part fruit and vegetable grocer, Fruitologist, serves a killer bowl for only $10. Add peanut butter for an extra $1 if you’re feeling indulgent. This acai bowl is also a perfect post-hike reward if you’ve just finished the iconic Coogee to Bondi coastal walk. While Fruitologist is not a sit-in cafe, you can take your acai to the nearby shore of Australia’s most famous beach, or picnic on the crates set up near by. There is also a second location in Rozelle that does a dine in option.
