For a sunny, summery week in May the folks of Bay Bowls in Brunswick (and soon to be Wiscasset as well) welcomed the local Yelp Elite Squad for smoothie bowls! Owners Sal and Soraia Matari are entrepreneurs, parents, and recently grandparents; they’ve been married for 38 years! Both born in Brazil, they’re excited to be bringing both açai and pitaya (dragon fruit) to the community.
Yelpers loved being able to sample some of their incredible, healthy bowl options especially the Dragon Bowl (topped with granola, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, coconut flakes, and peanut butter) and the SOB – that’s South Of Brazil! – topped with granola, bananas, strawberries, cacao nibs, and nutella! Elite Sydney G wrote, “They made the dragon fruit into almost a sorbet. I’m not usually a dragon fruit person only because the seeds are annoying but the blended dragon fruit had all of the flavor without seeds getting stuck in your teeth. The fruit was fresh and tasty.”
One of our favorite exchanges was between Elite Kristen L and Sal: “While waiting for my bowl, the owner offered my daughter a banana, specially sliced, as he said that is how his granddaughter enjoys to eat her bananas. SO SWEET!”
Thanks to our event partners Bay Bowls!
