Their Hanalei bowl as pictured is the bomb! Generous portion with acai, granola, pineapple, coconut, banana & honey. Great after a morning surf!

I love their Wholesome bowl... I usually get a half (not on the menu but they will sell just a half of this bowl.)

It's a self serve yogurt shop. I'm not usually a fan of yogurt and only went with a friend. Had the salted caramel. Wow! Really good. We also ordered a bagel with cream cheese. Skip that. Had hardly any cheese on it. (really minimal) and took forever. Would definitely return for the yogurt though.

Surprisingly great frozen yogurt! Very creamy and yummy flavors and great fresh toppings. This was a great unexpected find on our trip to Laguna when searching for something sweet!

It's an art gallery and a yogurt shop. Great beachy vibe. They have self serve frozen yogurt, as well as acai bowls and rice bowls for lunch.

Love this place. We come here a couple of mornings every time we are in town. Great healthy bowls for breakfast with fresh yogurt, fresh fruits and other options. It's a good fresh break from your standard "egg" breakfast. Nice small patio on PCH with a little bit of an ocean view.

First, let me warn you that the rice bowls are served cold. Eating cold rice, lentils, and chick peas isn't really my thing, but their rice bowls are tasty. Our 11-month-old also enjoyed the kiddo burrito. My favorite was the fro-yo, some of which was organic. Great outdoor seating options, some with views over the sea.
