It seems like you can find an acai bowl place on every corner now, but though the trend is admittedly is losing its luster, Nekter manages to bring it back. If you are looking for an authentic, health-conscious spot to grab a snack, one that doesn’t just use “juicery” as a buzzword, this is it.  

Everything is fresh squeezed in house. While this means the the juice comes out disappointingly room temperature, at least you know you’re getting what you’re promised.

I went back a few times and tried multiple juices, but just couldn’t seem to find one I like. However,  I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed with the juice aspect – it’s just not what I was expecting. Not mention that they are a bit on the pricier side. I don’t want to pay $4.95 for a lukewarm juice.

Despite the less than magnificent juice, I have to say I was thoroughly impressed by their acai bowls. As I said before, the fruit is totally fresh, and, yes, that does have an effect on the taste. It also contained what was easily the best granola I’ve ever had in my whole life. I will say that the actual acai itself was a bit bland, but I think that’s because they stay true to their word of no added sugars or preservatives.

The pitaya bowl was by far my favorite item on the menu. It was flavorful, fresh and, of course, all natural. The bowls are only $7.95 which I think is a fair price for a good sized bowl that really fills you up. It’s basically a whole meal for under $10.
