Unless you have been living under a rock, you won't have missed the trend that keeps on trending; Açai Bowls. The super-food berry from the Amazon whose name is confusing for first-timers has become the perfect snack to keep you satisfied. The feel-good smoothie bowl is high in nutritional value, packed with antioxidants and so Insta worthy. 

Perfecting the bowl can come with its challenges, from choosing the tastiest of muesli to getting the texture just right and making sure that fruit is sliced with precision. So, we've done the rounds and come up with this list of Newcastle cafes that have mastered the legendary Açai bowl. 

Pronounced Ah-sigh-ee.
