Last year it was cheesesteaks. This year it's cereal. Cereality to be specific. It's a small restaurant a block away from school that serves cereal. Cereal for breafast, cereal for lunch, cereal for dinner. And with any topping(s) you want. It's also a nice place to loiter, what with the free WiFi. My kind of place, and definitely worth a try if you're in Philly. Try this custom concoction: Frosted Flakes, bananas, coconut shavings, and honey. Pure bliss.
As an aside, I'm not sure how good a business model Cereality is. I'd bet the margins are decent as food goes, but I'm not sure if they'll get enough order volume to cover their overhead. Most fast food places make their money on fountain drinks, and no one gets drinks at this place. A Taco Bell in this location would probably make a lot more money per square foot.
Well, we all need to give back to the community in some way, so I've decided to make Cereality my charity case for the next semester. I'll help keep them afloat for another few months, out of the goodness of my heart. Feel free to stop in and say hi. I'm easy to find, just follow the slurping sounds.
