Love cereal? No really love cereal? Have you mixed up different types of cereal at home looking for the perfect combination?
Then new local eatery Cereal Trip is for you. It’s a cereal bar that opens Tuesday in downtown Fresno and the concept is a lot like one of those create-your-own-crazy-combo frozen yogurt shops. You pick one (or more, if you like) base cereal, mix-in a topping or two (M & Ms, raisins, almonds, etc) and even choose your favorite kind of milk.
There are also seven favorite combinations from the Cereal Trip staff that customers can choose from. You can expect the menu (see below) to change — with additions of new cereals and/or toppings.
“I love cereal,” says co-owner Uriel Perez, 24. “It’s my favorite thing to eat. And I think a lot of other people agree with me”
He and co-owner Vanessa Silva, 25, have been putting the finishing touches on the eatery — which is at 907 Van Ness Ave, near Kern St., and right around the corner from the Fulton Mall. They’ll be open 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and they’ll stay open later on ArtHop days.
“I grew up around this area, not too far from here,” Perez says of the downtown location. “I know it’s potential. I want to be part of re-introducing people to downtown.”
