South Block GWU

2301 G St NW, Washington, DC 20037, USA




Start your day at South Block with delicious acai bowls and smoothies in DC.

South Block is a DC staple and local favorite. The smoothies and warrior bowls are delicious, healthy, and made-to-order. You can add protein, collagen, bee pollen, hemp hearts and more. Also available, fresh pressed and raw juices (15 different juices to choose from), toasts (avocado toast is our favorite), and power snacks (grab a pack of dough balls if you want a healthy, vegan version of cookie dough). And if you're looking for a twist on "regular" water, try Mint Water, Rose Water, or Alkaline Water. 

If you need a pick-me-up, there’s a full-service coffee bar with espresso drinks, coffees, and teas. In the summer, I enjoy the Iced Oat Milk Latte and love Bulletproof coffee in the winter.

Our favorite menu items are açai warrior bowl, super green smoothie (add ginger if you want an extra kick), mango mania, greens juice, glow juice, and avocado toast with extra hemp hearts. (See, it’s hard to pick just one item). 

This is located inside the Lerner Health and Wellness Center at GWU, you must have a photo ID to enter. 

The closest metro is Foggy Bottom-GWU.

Melody moved around most of her life (military family) and graduated from the University of Central Florida where she was a college athlete. Even though the beach will always feel like home, she now lives in Arlington, VA with her husband, Brent, and the #fourlittlejonesies. After stints as a flight attendant, government consultant, and sales representative for a major running brand, Melody spends her days exploring and adventuring with the kids. Whether it’s a hike, playground, bike ride/run to a playground, or nature walk, Melody and the kids are always out of the house by 9:30am (otherwise, it’s chaos). Melody is a Washington D.C. ambassador, and loves the opportunity to explore even more in the city she calls home.
