Located at 1212 Hertel Ave., a cereal cafe opened its doors for business and it has been booming ever since. This cafe, The Cereal Spot, has created innovative ways to enjoy cereal and is an excellent ode to Buffalo, a place where the smell of cereal is always around.
The cafe itself is meant to bring back memories from childhood. The walls are painted with famous cereal mascots, the cereal boxes are lined up on shelves circling the cafe and the tables are different cereal boxes. There is seating both indoor and outdoors, and there are even displays with prepackaged cereal treats to buy on the side. Some of the options included rice krispie treats, cereal flavored cupcakes and cereal infused popcorn.
Their menu has a wide range of options to choose from. The Cereal Spot offers multiple ways to enjoy cereal, so that customers could come and enjoy some cereal in the morning or at night. With over 70 cereal options, 14 ice cream options and 6 milk options, there is always something for everyone. The cereal options range from well known classics like Froot Loops, Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, to options that are more out of the ordinary like Funfetti cereal, Josh’s Jaqs and even Halloween themed cereal.
One fairly popular option is the “Plain Jane,” in which the customer can choose any type (or types) of cereal to have with milk and toppings. The toppings range from fresh fruit to candy and chocolate. Another popular option is to add a scoop of ice cream on top of the cereal. The ice cream mixes with the cereal to create a sweet and creamy dessert for all.
Ice cream lovers can also get a mug filled with one of their Perry’s ice cream options with, of course, some cereal toppings. If ice cream is not enough, there is even a cereal taco option in which cereal is used as a taco shell to hold ice cream and other toppings inside.
All of the prices found here are very reasonable, especially considering the amount of food received. The workers and the co-owners are all very passionate about the cafe and are obviously very excited to help and serve all of their customers. They encourage customers to be their own cereal chef, and get creative with combining cereals, toppings and ice cream. Customers can tell that The Cereal Spot has a very dedicated crew, and it makes people want to come back again and again.
The Cereal Spot provides their customers not only with delicious and out of the box cereal ideas, but a hardworking crew and a warm environment that anyone could enjoy with their family and friends.
