I love the South of France for it’s warm colours, it’s cosy atmosphere and it’s beautiful scenery. I come here very often and that’s why I am so happy to have found this little gem in the middle of Saint-Tropez! Apart from the beach of course this will be the spot where you’ll find me! Enjoying my Açai Bowl in the sun while watching people go past through the stunning streets of the city.
This cafe that I am so in love with is called Açai Spot. It’s a little cafe in the middle of a cute street near the water. It’s the perfect spot to quickly pick up some breakfast or a quick snack. Or if you got some time sit down with your freshly made Açai bowl and enjoy the view.
What’s so special about this place is the fact that everything they serve here is 100% natural, has no sugar and absolutely no animal products in it. All the dishes are home-made, high quality and made with pure love. But it’s not only the dishes that are 100% natural. You are sitting in a complete natural environment! The bar is made with organic material and even the plastic bowls, cups and cutlery is made with compostable ‘plastic’. Meaning when a bowl or a spoon is placed in water it will dissolve over a short time – happy days for Mother Nature!
What to have
My absolute favourite and of course the first thing you have to try is the Açai Bowl (S €13/L €16). The amazing thing is that you can put together your entire bowl. Starting with a base you can choose between coconut, pitaya, Açai Pure and Açai Energy. Then choose the fruit you want it mixed with and finish off with the toppings! Different types of fruit, seeds, quinoa flakes and so on. If you order large you are in for a treat as it’s prepared to be a full meal. With lots of protein and amazing vitamins and minerals you have yourself a healthy boost that both your body and mind will love!
The quality of their ingredients and Açai is truly impressive. In fact, you’ll even see people from Brazil licking their lips when they leave with their very own bowl. One thing is for sure, they have some kick ass açai with which they make a kick ass bowl!
If you are an Açai freak like me this is also a great spot to take some high quality Açai home with you. They sell large bags of it in the cafe which are amazing. They also have snacks made daily such as delicious Energy Balls, which are great to take on the go! You can also order a fresh cold soup, juice, vegan protein smoothie or a ginger health shot if you are feeling extra healthy!
I truly love everything about this cafe. The natural and cosy atmosphere, the sweet and comforting people and of course the high quality and delicious products and meals. Their focus is ‘to inspire people to make decisions for a healthy and balanced diet by offering products aimed at their well-being’. All this with a little fun and sweetness added!

Açai Spot is open everyday from 7am -7pm and their address is 15 Rue des Remparts
