Just like our Raleigh Spotlight’s, we are going to be doing Outer Banks Spotlights since I am here for the Summer and want to show y’all around. This first one was actually a new one for me as well but will not be one of my go-to places for breakfast and something delicious. The Spot has two locations in Nags Head and Kitty Hawk but they are known for being the 1st Acai and Yogurt Bowl Restaurant here in the Outer Banks. Featuring Acai Bowls, Yogurt Bowls, Smoothies, Ice Cream and much more! Y’all know how I feel about my Acai bowls.
They have 8 different Acai bowls, each with their own differences and toppings from fresh fruit to peanut butter to chocolate to honey. They use Sambazon Acai exclusively in their bowls and if you have been following along and have seen my Acai bowls you know that is what I use. Outside of Acai bowls, they have toast and hot waffles that you can get straight off the iron and some awesome coffee options.
For those of you who don’t know what Acai is, here is the proper description: Acai is the fruit of an Acai Palm Tree. The Berry is similar in appearance to a grape, but smaller and less pulp. It is almost all seed (80% of the fruit) the juice is really just in the skin. The palms mostly grow in Brazil and Northern South America in swamps and on floodplains. Acai has to be processed close to the source as it has a very short shelf life once picked. Acai is a superfruit, high in antioxidants and healthy omegas similar to the healthy benefits contained in red wine and olive oil.
Incredible food, incredible scenery, and incredible staff. If you are looking for a great and quick experience in the Outer Banks for breakfast, The Spot is definitely the place to try!
If any of you live in the Outer Banks or visit OBX, and have some places that you think should be showcased in the short-series OBX Spotlight series, please comment them down below or DM me on any of my social media. AND if you go to The Spot yourself, I want to hear how your experience was and what food you got. As always, thank y’all for stopping by and reading. I will see y’all back here next time.
I love that you highlighted some great food spots, because that’s always super important when we’re visiting.
Thank you! I don’t refer to myself as a foodie but dang I love some food!
