• Tropical Vibes in Jersey City: A Visit to Sweetberry Bowls

    We know what you’re thinking — another acai shop? But yes, the battle of açai bowls continues, and even though they all consist of {mostly} the same ingredients, sometimes ya gotta rank em. In Jersey City, Sweetberry Bowls is the newest acai shop to hit downtown JC, so we recently visited its downtown Jersey City {179 Newark Avenue} location to get the scoop. Here’s more about Sweetberry Bowls in Jersey City:

    Behind The Business

    Sweetberry Bowls was founded in 2017 by Desi Saran, a West New York resident and entrepreneur. He was formerly associated with Playa Bowls, but appears he ventured off to do his own thing — and with gusto! The company offers a fast and relatively healthy menu, and is rapidly franchising throughout the country to locations including Florida {as well as all around NJ}.

    The Menu

    Sweetberry Bowls allows customers to DIY their bowls — pretty similar to most spots in the area. Whether it be acai, pitaya, coconut, or green-based, each menu item is completely customizable. Sweetberry’s menu makes it easy to mix and match bases and toppings, but if you want to be truly photo-worthy, opt for one of their signature bowls. {HG Tip: The coconut base is clutch for anyone craving a yogurt treat sans the dairy.} Hearty salads, oatmeals, smoothies, and coffee are among the other items to-go.

    The Atmosphere

    Bright colors and a tropical feel = much-needed year-round, but especially in winter months. Green faux plants hang from the ceiling and the walls, and the interior is accented with hot pink and white decor, making it quite the gram-worthy spot.

    Rewards Program

    This isn’t sponsored, we’re just laying down the facts: You’ll get $5 off your next acai bowl if you sign up for their Rewards Program on the Sweetberry website. Then, as most rewards programs do, every time you order you’ll rack up points and can win a free smoothie, bowl, salad, or t-shirt.

    Hours + Location

    Sweetberry is open 7 days a week 8:00AM-10:00PM. Sweetberry Bowls is also available on Seamless and GrubHub. 

    All in all, another acai bowl spot to add to your rotation — with super cute decor and vibes.
