The best places to find an açai bowl on the menu in Leeds

Açai bowls are the ultimate healthy brekkie- but where’s the best spot to get one in Leeds?

If you’re looking for a refreshing brekkie to start the day- we’ve found plenty of acai and smoothie bowls that are packed with vitamins and punchy flavour.

Acai bowls are one of the most aesthetic breakfasts around and perfect for vegans wanting to get their five a day in whilst posting their meal on to their socials. Not just that, but they contain a whole lot of fruit and grains, so it can be a great source of nutrients.

Here’s our favourite spots to grab an açai bowl in and around Leeds.

The organic açai bowl from Wolfox is made from a smoothie base, topped with granola, fresh fruit and coconut flakes- so selections can vary from day to day, but we’re convinced they’re all just as tasty as each other- they were simply beautiful. We can fully understand how they get through 70kg of bananas a week.

Wolfox is a gorgeous cafe space right in the heart of Leeds that’s perfect for working remotely or grabbing some Saturday brunch- it’s definitely our number one spot for Instagrammable açai bowls for sure.
