BY PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE – This is apparently the year of the açaí bowl in Philadelphia — just look at SoBol opened two locations, Break Juicery announced it was headed to The Bourse — and we’re totally fine with that. They’re pretty, they taste good, and they’re made with good-for-you foods — what’s not to love about that?
Now the Philly area has a new spot for smoothie bowls, and all kinds of other buzzy, healthy foods: California-based superfood cafe Vitality Bowls. The chain has 60 locations around the country, and their first Pennsylvania franchise location is now open in King of Prussia.
The cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, incorporating “superfoods” like spirulina, moringa, maca, and bee pollen into their dishes. The menu includes everything from panini sandwiches to avocado toast to fresh-pressed juices to smoothies and açaí bowls. Prices range around $11 to $13 for a bowl, $9 for a salad, and $6 for juice. The shop also has a coffee bar, where guests can infuse their caffeine jolt with some antioxidants in beverages like an Açaí Latte and the Superfood Mocha.
The King of Prussia location is owned by business partners Nirav Vakil and Meetul Patel, who are planning to open a cafe in Mechanicsburg next.
“We believe that healthy food can be an option for fast casual food and we are excited to have Nirav and Meetul on board with this,” Tara Gilad, founder and owner of Vitality Bowls, in a press release. “We look forward to seeing them grow their business in King of Prussia and sharing the Vitality Bowls message with the community.”
Vitality Bowls is now open at 230 Village Drive, Suite 150 in King of Prussia.
