One of Belmar's most popular casual restaurants, Playa Bowls, opened its second location at the corner of 17th and Ocean Avenues on June 3, 2018. Known as Lil Belmar, the menu at the new Playa Bowls in Belmar includes the company's signature pure acai bowls, pitaya bowls, smoothies, coconut bowls, chia pudding bowls, banana bowls, and green kale bowls.
Fresh juices and steel-cut organic oatmeal bowls are among the other menu options at Playa Bowls. Prices for the blended bowls range from $9 to $11. A 16-ounce smoothie is $6.99 and the 20-ounce cup is $7.99. Customize your bowl or smoothie with toppings such as granola, peanut butter, chia seeds, goji berries, honey, vegan protein, bee pollen, and more for fifty cents per topping. Oatmeal bowls are $8.
The flagship location of Playa Bowls is located at 803 Ocean Avenue in Belmar, New Jersey. Lil Belmar is located at 1607 Ocean Avenue, near Eastern Lines Surf Shop and Beckman's at the Beach (opposite corner from Dunkin Donuts).
Playa Bowls started in 2014 as a modest little takeout stand on Ocean Avenue in Belmar. The business has quickly erupted into a nationwide sensation with numerous locations opening not only along the Jersey Shore, but also across New Jersey, New York City, Pennsylvania, and Florida.
Our favorites include the dragonberry pitaya bowl and the power acai bowl. Playa bowls are great snack to take to the beach.
