We had a great experience in Conway today. Off on a road trip, we decided to stop at the Kosta Bowl on Main Street. Truth is we didn’t know what to expect. Boy, were we very pleasantly surprised!
The store looks great and the staff friendly and attentive. And they were patient. After all, there are lot of great looking options to choose from.
So what is a Kosta Bowl? Better than trying to describe the concept let me tell you about mine.
I ordered the Goin’ Green Bowl. At the bottom is a chilled green “base” that’s topped with goodies. The base is somewhere between an ice cream and a pudding. On top is half a sliced banana and big, thick slices of kiwi. Toasted granola gives the mixture a nice, crunchy texture and coconut flakes add a taste of sweetness. The whole masterpiece is topped with a drizzle of almond butter and honey.
Others got the Palmetto Bowl, acai topped with pineapple, bananas, granola, honey and coconut flakes and the Nutty Bowl. The Nutty Bowl also had acai with fresh strawberries, bananas, granola, coconut flakes, honey, Nutella and peanut butter.
As one of the people in our party remarked, “This tastes like real food!”
These are not snacks. These are meals. The Kosta Bowl measures 5 ½ inches in diameter and is 3 inches deep and it arrives filled to the top. Along with 27 different bowls (including oatmeal), there are 12 Smoothies and 4 different fruit and yogurt parfaits. Bowls range from $9 to $11, Smoothies are $7 and the Parfaits $4.75.
It’s interesting to mention that Kosta Bowls was founded by a Myrtle Beach local. Already, there are three Kosta Bowls in the Greater Grand Strand with, according to the website, another on the way. And no doubt, many, many more to come.
A great place to eat and a great story. Spread the word.
