First up is vegan spot Brazilian Acai Bowls, which offers juices, smoothies and acai bowls, situated at 1400 Calloway Drive, Suite 103. With 4.5 stars out of 271 reviews on Yelp, it's proven to be the highest-rated business of its kind in Bakersfield.

Stop in and grab a juice, like The Incredible Hulk, with cucumber, apple, kale, celery, orange, lemon, spinach, ginger and cayenne or the California Sunrise with pineapple apple, orange, lemon and beet.

When it comes to acai bowls, look for the Classic Bowl, which includes granola, banana and strawberry. Or taste test some of its small bites — the eatery offers a vegan chicken sandwich, Brazilian-style rice and beans and protein doughnuts.

Traditional American spot Sonder is another top choice. Yelpers give the business, located at 9500 Brimhall Road, four stars out of 425 reviews. 

Start your meal off with a smoked salmon board with dill cream, red onions and arugula served with bruschetta before looking at heartier menu options like the fried chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy and cornbread.

The eatery also serves up the Sonder Burger with two beef patties, cheddar, beer mustard, pickles and house spread on a brioche bun, as well as the Bake Burrito with ribeye meet, beer-battered fries, caramelized onion, jalapeno and cheddar cheese. 

Thirsty? A variety of libations are also on offer; expect everything from martinis and Manhattans to glasses of wine and beer.
