When I first moved to the North County, I explored all the local beaches and fell in love with Encinitas. I love the independent shops and restaurants along Highway 101. I was intrigued by The Self-Realization Fellowship and the beautiful meditation gardens. I enjoy walking through the gardens and reflecting on the beauty mother nature has given us.

I noticed a little restaurant across the street with a line out the door. It was called Swami’s Cafe. After a terrifying ordeal to get across the street, I made it to this quaint little restaurant. . You order food at the counter and then find a seat on the patio and a waiter will bring it to you. I ordered an Acai Bowl which was absolutely delicious! Years later it is still my favorite thing on the menu.
It has home made nutty granola under a pile of frozen acai puree. Fresh fruit surrounds the bowl and shredded coconut and bee pollen top it off. SO GOOD!
