7 Places to Get an Acai Bowl in Metro Detroit

Your guide for the Instagram-worthy dish



The picture-perfect summer trend continues to make waves. Here are 7 metro Detroit juice bars and restaurants living up to the fad.


The newly-opened protein-packed cafe offers an impressive selection of acai bowls and handmade guilt-free treats, like their game changing Fruity Pebbles Milkshake and gluten-free Chocolate Chip Protein Cheesecake. The dessert hotspot’s menu offers extravagant acai bowls topped with peanut butter, coconut shreds, chocolate chips, and Oreo's – a treat for an irresistible and much-needed cheat day.

Pair a gym session, massage, or acupuncture treatment with a tasty acai blend of apple juice, cacoa nibs, almond butter, and granola, topped with fresh fruit – the perfect health and wellness lifestyle experience. Their motto is all about self-care and “making you a priority.”


The award-winning brunch spot has just opened its first Michigan location. Try their customer-favorite Organic Sambazon Acai, embellished with fresh strawberries, bananas, kiwi, blueberries, house made granola, and served with whole grain artisan toast topped with almond butter. You also can’t go wrong with some of their other top picks, like coconut milk chia seed pudding and the granola bowl!

The philosophy behind this family owned juice bar — operated by a mother-daughter duo team — is conscious eating. Offering gluten, dairy, and sugar-free drinks, the business serves nutritious, unprocessed acai bowls in a boutique atmosphere. Customer favorites include the nutritious Dragon Fruit Acai Bowl with an assortment of bananas, strawberries, pineapples, orange juice, turmeric, granola, cacao nibs, and coconut.


For healthy, 100 percent organic, and nutrient-packed comfort food, this juicery and kitchen is the place for acai bowls on-the-go. Couple an organic cold pressed Urge juice with a strawberry, blueberry, almond, chia seed, and granola acai bowl at either of their locations in Northville or Berkley.

From organic burgers and chili cheese tots to smoothie acai bowls and energizing juices, Brome’s sweet and savory menu has something for everyone. The restaurant’s recently-debuted Balence juice bar has brought a wave of excitement to Dearborn and Midtown. Their brightly-colored and of course, insta-worthy acai bowls, like the Bernana Delight, offer a banana, strawberry, organic acai, agave nectarine, and almond milk base, topped with turmeric, granola, chocolate, hazelnut, and chia seeds.



Indulge yourself in the Birmingham-based salad company's Hulk Acai Bowl, garnished with quality ingredients like spinach, avocado, and topped with hemp hearts, honey drizzle, and more. 


#Açaí bowls now, #holiday cookies later 😉 #FridayFeeling
