Costa Bowls open

Their grand opening was held this morning. 

After a very successful soft opening, Costa Bowls officially opened its Downtown Conway location's doors this morning.

Costa Bowls is one of Myrtle Beach’s first acai bowl spots, with its original location at the Market Common. Acai is a small purple berry that is known as a delicious superfruit full of antioxidants and healthy omegas and enzymes. According to their menu, acai is known to boost immunity, muscle recovery, energy production and hydration.

Owners Chris Smith and his wife Allison, along with their children, Ayden, Maci, and Jase, joined up with Market Common Costa Bowl owners Kyle Dick and Maria Cossentino (all center) for an official ribbon cutting with Conway Downtown Alive and the City of Conway.

Mayor Barbara Blain-Bellamy, some city council members, and a number of other Downtown Conway business owners came to show their support. Smith and Dick also work together as Myrtle Beach Police Department officers, and their fellow officers came to enjoy the morning as well.

Smith said last month that one of their most popular bowls is called the Nutty Bowl, which is blended acai, topped with strawberries, bananas, granola, coconut flakes, Nutella and their own homemade peanut butter.

“It’s absolutely delicious,” Smith said. “All the fruit is fresh from that morning and it’s a cool experience.”

There is indoor and outdoor seating available, along with Wifi for those who want to “grab a bowl” and get some work done.

Costa Bowls is located at 412 Main Street in Conway, and is open 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, closed on Sundays.
