7. The Acai King
At The Acai King, located within Primo’s Coffee House, you won’t get your ordinary acai bowl. Each sweet treat comes with flowers and fruit decorations, making it much more visually appealing than any other acai bowl. All you need for an aesthetic background is the wooden picnic tables in front of the shop. With a great rating on Yelp, The Acai Bowl King is the place to go if you want to step up your Instagram game. The vivid fruit and flower colors make it easy to take a good picture. We recommend using a higher angle to capture all of the fruity frozen goodness. You can leave the rest to the acai bowl itself, and to your Instagram filters, although not much editing is needed to capture the bowl’s natural beauty.
