A Guide to Tampa’s Most Popular Acai Bowl Hot Spots

Tampa acai bowls

Acai berries are an antioxidant powerhouse, but their high antioxidant content is only one of the reasons they’ve become so popular as a health food. Acai bowls are a cool, refreshing and hearty breakfast or late afternoon pick-me-up. Treat yourself this summer and splurge on all the best Tampa acai bowls the Bay area has to offer.

Rico’s Acai

The freshest food truck in downtown Tampa – Rico’s serves up Acai layered with granola, fresh fruit and an array of toppings. This truck is a favorite among those who work and live in downtown. They layer their granola on top AND bottom so you don’t run out as you make your way through the acai. *highly recommended* One of their most popular bowls is the Rainbow bowl – which as the name implies is piled high with colorful fruit!

Sweet Soul

One of the newer additions to the Ciccio Restaurant Group, Sweet Soul has quickly become a go to spot for South Tampians. Not only do they serve up a mean acai bowl and delicious smoothies – they also have (in my opinion) the best, if not the only, non-dairy soft serve in the area. They switch up their flavors on occasion, however you can typically always find charcoal vanilla and matcha on their menu. Open daily at 9 a.m.

They also have smoothies made with ingredients such as coconut water, cold brew coffee and avocado – which you will be hard pressed to find at most smoothie shops. Not to mention their list of toppings which will make any health food junkie swoon – raw almond butter, bee pollen, goji berries, maca root powder and spirulina – just to name a few. One of the best Tampa acai bowls.
