Boba Tea and Acai Bowls at The Spot, Deep River

the spot

Deep River has been hopping this summer with lots of new businesses popping up on and around Main Street. We were delighted to try a newcomer to the block and it’s safe to say The Spot will be a regular stop for us.

Kate, local mother of four, set out to provide a welcoming space to gather when she opened just two weeks ago, serving healthy treats for all ages. She has done just that and more in her cafe that churns out milky boba tea (aka Bubble Tea – various cold teas with fruit-flavored tapioca pearls), protein shakes, sorbet, and acai bowls. This whimsically nostalgic venue has arcade games, a jukebox, and a payphone. Catch a seat at a window counter and watch the summertime bustle on the sidewalk or slump into the cozy Instagramable corner and enjoy free WIFI (and a charging station).

I have found my favorite afternoon pick-me-up in the Superhero Smoothie – made from oat milk, vanilla pea protein and blue spirulina (picture above). We’ve already sampled our way through some tasty fruit teas, coconut sorbet bowls, and protein bites but there’s still plenty to choose from.

Don’t miss the acai bowls. We chose one with acai berries, bananas, almond butter, granola and slivered almonds and brought it to the beach for a perfectly well-rounded and filling breakfast. See photo below.
