My sister & I frequently eat at Playa Bowls but the only one we know of is in Allentown, PA. To see this on the boardwalk was a nice surprise. Love the location, the cleanliness, & service.

Good selection of coffee, but NO decaf! Selection of bowls very good and fresh. Also has wearable merchandise.

We have ordered delivery from Playa Bowls several times. The last two times they got neither order correct. When we called their location, no exaggeration, 15 times yet no answer. They do not seem to be properly managed. After no answer we decided to drive...15 minutes back to the store. They were rude despite having our receipt with the correct order. So let's revisit, wrong order delivered, call 15 -18 times and no answer, drive 15 minutes to the store and they are rude blaming us despite the receipt reflecting we ordered the food correctly. If you own a playa bowl, learn to train your employees better. We were not rude yet were responded rudely. Hesitate before ordering again.More

My whole family loves Playa Bowls. They have a huge selection of nutritious and tasty bowls for everyone. the flavor combinations are all excellent and they are good at changing any thing you like. They also work well with food allergies and sensitivities. A little...pricey, but overall this place is great.More

Worst Playa Bowls location EVER. First night at the shore, a MONDAY night, 9pm, I waited 22 mins in line because the girl taking orders is beyond confused. Every one in line was rolling their eyes at how SLOW & sloppy the girl taking orders...was. She kept "misunderstanding" & making mistakes. Horrific. She couldn't even count change and was irritating all of the customers in front of me in line. Finally it was my turn at 9:22pm. I was told I could NOT order juice as they closed their juice machines. So I had to order a smoothie. This took FOREVER. Then she had to call the manager over because they couldn't use their blenders for Ginger. SO I had to settle again. They over charged me so much (my one smoothie cost me $18, how I do not know). BUT I was too tired of waiting and just paid. My friends were also irate at how long this was taking. I had to wait an additional 12 minutes on top of the 22 minutes for the actual Smoothie, which by the way, was NOT "smooth" at ALL. It was chunky and bland. I had to CHEW my smoothie as they clearly didn't blend the kale and cucumber enough. They served the cup to me without a lid; they just covered it with saran wrap. This location is packed with apathetic, inarticulate and extremely SLOW staff. The owner should reevaluate and take notice. Clearly it's ALL about location (the beach) and they simply don't care. Horrific.More

Waking up in an Astury Park hotel near by, offering a traditional but expensive breakfast, it was refreshing to find Playa Bowls right there on the board walk. So fresh feeling, music pumping, sun kissed customers and healthy exiting food in generous portions. What a...find! It soon became our favorite breakfast spot :-) for our stay.More

We had the Kale Bowl and Dragonfruit bowls for breakfast-both excellent! The service was very friendly as well.

I tried this out my first day on a mini vacation and had to return daily. The BEST. Be mindful though, the lines can be long during the beach day.... also check that everything is made to your specs when changing a specific bowl. And...ye, they are very eager to please and make a custom bowl for you! Don’t forget their app which will earn you rewards too!More
