Backyard bowls produce great tasting healthy breakfast/brunch bowls full of fresh fruit, frozen fruit blends (including acai), oats and other extras. We loved going here in our time in Santa B - after a long road trip, indulging in lots of greasy fast food options, this was a welcome suprise. Backyard Bowls was very popular every day when we went there and the wait for our bowls was quite long. However, this was the only downside and there is a pre-ordering system if you are organised and want to avoid the queues (which we only noticed on our last day).

Stumbled on this place while checking out new areas in this renovated part of town.
BEST Acai berry bowl we have ever tasted. Rivals what one can find in Kauai. Justifiably busy and well worth the money, as the small bowl is more than sufficient.
In the blue awning section. Just follow the crowd.

We spent 5 days in Santa Barbara and were lucky to find Backyard Bowls on the first day (thanks Tripadvisor!). We went there four times and loved the acai berry bowls and oatmeal bowls. Great healthy tasty alternative breakfast - not easy to find anywhere in the US in my experience. If you want to escape fried eggs topped with cheese this could be the place for you.

Whenever we are in Santa Barbara this is a favorite breakfast place. The island bowl is my favorite bowl with the coconut on top. Servings are huge and a small is plenty for one. I only wish we had one in my hometown.

We get acai bowls wherever we go. Got hooked on them in Hawaii, and we make them at home. Backyard Bowls was started by two friends who wanted to create the best acai bowls, and they have done that!! Some of the best we've ever had. Thank you, and we can't wait to come back to SB and have them again!!
