Cardiff 101 Main Street loves it’s community of local residents and businesses and we want to take a moment to reflect on the AWESOME collection of shops, restaurants, and cafes we have here within our reach every day.
So begins our C101 Member Spotlight Series. Today we are highlighting a local favorite, our very own, Sambazon Acai Café.
Did you know that there are only two actual Sambazon Acai Cafés in existence?
Yep, that’s right - we LUCKED out! Located front and center in Cardiff’s buzzing town square, you can’t miss this delicious acai and juice bar. They’ve been here almost 5 years now, coming to Cardiff-by-the-sea to open their flagship store because of the great location.
The founders had a vision to share the ‘Acai Bowl Experience’ directly with people so they decided to open up a cafe where they could do just that. And my is it beautiful! Every design detail from the handcrafted Brazilian door handle, 100-year old reclaimed oak table, repurposed glass bottle lighting fixtures, tiled flooring to match the iconic Copacabana boardwalk... the cafe transports you to Brazil the moment you walk through the door.
Residents and visitors alike will agree, the Sambazon Acai Cafe is a staple of Cardiff life.
We had the opportunity to chat with Sambazon and they are excited to be in Cardiff and see it as a community that will continue to grow and attract more people. When asked how we could improve Cardiff, they said “more parking and an area to host events and concerts!” - We like where your heads at, Sambazon!
Open from 7am-7pm every day, make sure to stop by and enjoy that Amazon superfood we all know and love!
