Born in Santa Barbara, Backyard Bowls has made its way to Beverly with a sleek, minimalstic design and kickass acai bowls. It's not just that the sizeable bowls are well worth the average $10 you'll be spending on them (the small is plenty, trust us) but that the mangoes taste like they've been plucked straight from the trees, the bananas are always perfectly ripe, and the blended acai is consistently creamy. Place your order—Island Bowl? Green Bowl? Power Bowl? You can't go wrong.—then move on down the line to watch your pick being whipped up behind a glass work station. There are porridge bowls, too, like Mama's Oatmeal and Ancient Grains, along with a slew of smoothies and Four Barrel coffee. Thanks for making the move to LA, Backyard Bowls—we're glad you're here.
