Sao Acai | Culver City, CA

While I was in California earlier this month, I was able to sneak away with my best friends, Hannah and Emily, and go out for açaí bowls together at a new place that opened up in my hometown. (Getting smoothie bowls together is kinda a tradition now after all the time we spent at KURE Juice Bar when we were together in Portland, Oregon.)

São Açaí is located in Culver City, California right by the newly developed Platform. It has a lovely, bright, and clean aesthetic and the staff was so welcoming, helpful, and friendly when came in.

We ordered what turned out to be some of the most visually stunning smoothie bowls we’d ever seen.

Sao Acai

Perched on our wooden stools, we enjoyed our smoothie bowls as we watched the world through the window. It’s an area I knew well – goodness – I grew up there. So much has changed in the past few years, though, that it was fascinating to watch it with new eyes and a fresh perspective.

Is there anything better than an acai bowl on a hot summer afternoon? I don’t think so.

I ordered the Green Bowl that is made blended with acai, apple juice, banana, blueberry, strawberry, kale, and spinach and is topped with granola, banana, strawberry, blueberry, and honey. (I asked for added bee pollen and goji berries because bee pollen is amazing and goji berries are delicious.)

São Açaí is located in the Hayden Tract in Culver City; right across from Platform, “a collection of the world’s most innovative merchants, chefs, and creative companies” (Welcome to Platform.) There are so many unique shops and delicious restaurants to explore and Jen Stark’s mural on the surrounding buildings accents the area perfectly. #helloplatform
