Divers Açaí Bowls | Antwerp

Antwerp is always a little bit behind on the "latest" food trends, but it finally happened: the very first proper Açaí bowl place has finally opened! I've eaten these delicious bowls for breakfast in Auckland, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Bali, Sydney... all around the world but not yet in Antwerp. Up until now I always made my own Açaí bowls at home, but now I can also grab one at a little place called Divers.

Divers is located in my favourite area in Antwerp: Zuid. It's full of boutique shops, galleries, bars, bakeries and little restaurants. Next to many Italian and Japanese places, a couple of healthy shops and cafés have opened here recently. There are not so many good healthy eateries in Antwerp so I'm happy with each new one opening!

The place is relatively small but very fresh and Pinterest-worthy: cosy cushions, lots of plants, cute wooden stools. Clearly, a lot of thought went into creating this space!

The menu is really pretty, with pictures of the food (not the tacky kind) and little quotes. There's a range of drinks and coffees, smoothies, juices, soups and smoothie bowls. Everything is vegan! I had actually expected some more food options like avocado toast, oatmeal or other breakfast options, but for now, I think they're only focusing on smoothie bowls. Hopefully they'll add some more hearty options for winter!

My friend and I both took the classic Açaí bowl which is topped with banana, granola, chia seeds and coconut flakes. I like my Açaí bowls with lots of different toppings (berries, nuts etc.) so I was a little disappointed with the bowls we got. But the Açaí itself was really delicious and the flavour was on point. I also loved the granola, although again, they could have been a bit more generous (especially considering the steep prices).

When I looked at the smoothie menu it reminded me a bit of Super Danke smoothies in Munich, which were always amazingly good. So next time I'm definitely trying one here!

Overall I quite like Divers, but they could provide a little more value for money. If I'm honest, I've had cheaper and better Açaí Bowls. But I totally support Divers because it's run by a young girl and I can only imagine how much work goes into a place like this. If you like smoothies and very insta-worthy little places, I think you'll like Divers! 

>> Find them at Volkstraat 9, Zuid Antwerpen
