We never outgrow the appeal of a good bowl of cereal, right? Whether you're starting your day or pouring a late night snack, cereal holds a special place many people's childhood memories. I think back to Saturday mornings feasting on a bowl of Cheerios or Life. Or if my parents were being generous, Fruity Pebbles or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Fortunately, you can still experience the joy of a great bowl of cereal at these fun, modern day cereal bars! Get a look at a few of the places around Ohio.
One Bowl – The Cereal Bar in Fostoria
This downtown Fostoria shop offers a constantly rotating selection of fun cereals, including a lot of specials and one-offs that are harder to find. You can order cereal by the bowl in kids, regular, and "hungry" sizes. You can also get cereal milkshakes and cereal flurries. They also offer the "One Bowl" challenge - where you order a giant bowl that's the equivalent of 20 cups of cereal. And if you finish, you'll win a prize, a T-shirt, and your photo on the wall!
Day & Night Cereal Bar in Cleveland
Located just minutes away from Cleveland's West Side Market, Day & Night Cereal Bar lets you customize your own bowls of cereal or order one of their originals. The Mucha Lucha, for instance, combines Cinnamon Toast Crunch with whipped cream, churro cereal, and a cinnamon roll sprinkle.
185th Signatuer Cereal Shake
222 Cold Brew Specialty Drinks and Cereal Bar in Euclid
True to its name, 222 Cold Brew features a huge menu of specialty coffee drinks, like loads of cold brew and frozen beverages. You can order cereal by the cup or their signature cereal shakes, named for streets around Euclid.
Remixx Ice Cream + Cereal Bar in Cleveland
Remixx lets you build your own ice cream sundaes topped with cereal! Choose a cup, shake, or cone, then top it with treats (aka cereals), drizzles, and mix-ins. You can tinker with everything from Apple Jacks to Cocoa Krispies to Honey Nut Cheerios to Trix. Can't decide? Check out their Top 10 playlist with combinations like the Dough Shorty It's Yo Birthday: Cookie Crisp, cookie dough, whipped cream, sprinkles.
If you're still craving creative cereal treats, stop by Dough Mama in Columbus for their Cereal Milk Cold Brew Latte. And keep an eye out for Outta The Box in Columbus and Saturday Morning Vibes in Cincinnati (both opening later in 2022).
