One of Auckland's finest smoothie bowl suppliers has extended its reach.
Ever since Bowl and Arrow (B+A) switched on the blenders at its cosy Orakei Village corner spot, the crowds have come. Drawn in by the bountiful smoothie bowls, fresh juices, coffees and treats, the place was an instant hit and constantly bustling. So much so, that a second outpost was inevitable.
Setting up shop in Parnell, the new B+A cafe is in good company sitting alongside Simon & Lee and Goodness Gracious. A calm, industrial space with well-picked floral accents, there’s space for those wanting to dine in with a casual bar on one side and a few small tables lining the other, though dishes can be ordered takeaway too.
On the menu, the beloved smoothie bowls remain, with the ever-popular ‘Brazilian’ continuing to dominate as the favourite, but a larger kitchen has also meant more options. Toast by The Midnight Baker in ‘sweet’ (banana, almond butter, coconut flakes and honey) or ‘savoury’ (pesto, hummus, tomato and savoury granola) are one such addition, as is the probiotic porridge by Denizen favourite, Bluefrog. With a range of salads, slices, sweet treats and Espresso Workshop coffee too, Bowl and Arrow is a hearty, healthy and — most importantly — delicious way to indulge.
