From Purple Foods, we’ve witnessed first hand the increase in popularity of the Acai berry in Melbourne over the last decade.

We think that’s because Acai is not only delicious but it is packed full of nutrients.

But what restaurants in Melbourne, Australia prepare the best Acai dishes?

In no particular order, below is a list of 30 cafes in Melbourne that serve Acai, we will continue to add more to this list – so once you have worked your way through the first 30, we will come back with another 30 to try!

If you think your cafe or a cafe you frequent should be on this list then please let us know!

​To see how Purple Foods can help you supply frozen Acai, call Adam 0411 512 426 or shoot an email to adam@purplefoods.com.au.
