Vitality Bowls and its acai berries have settled in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose.
The “superfood” cafe whose menu is built on the antioxidant-rich berry has opened in the Garden Theater for indoor dining, takeout and delivery.
It’s the 34th location in California for the company founded in 2011 in San Ramon by parents Tara and Roy Gilad, who came up with the idea of creating a restaurant for those, like their daughter, who suffer from food allergies.
Topping the menu of fruit-based bowls is the Vitality Bowl, with organic acai, strawberries, banana, organic granola and honey, and the popular Dragon Bowl, with dragon fruit, pineapple, coconut milk, goji berries and bee pollen.
For breakfast, consider the Morning Glory wrap, with eggs, avocado and vegetables, or the bowl of seasonal oats or toast with PB jam and chia. There are also smoothies and cold-pressed juices.
The cafe offers a long range of savory dishes, including paninis, wraps and bowls. The Steak Wrap features grass-fed steak, greens, and chimichurri sauce in a tomato-basil tortilla. The Vitality Wrap is a number of hummus, avocado, cereal and lemon tahini.
All of Vitality’s offerings are made in cross-contamination-free kitchens, and no artificial preservatives or added sweeteners are used.
On Lincoln Avenue, Vitality is taking over the space that once housed the Purple Onion Cafe.
Details: Inaugural hours are 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily at 1167 Lincoln Ave., San Jose. www.vitalitybowls.com
