Kellogg's NYC! Are you ready for it?

Kellogg's has opened a Cereal Cafe in New York's famed Times Square!
Now I like cereal, only having coffee for breakfast, I usually have it for lunch. I even like the thought of someone opening up a Cereal Cafe. In my home town the only creative idea seems to be another bar, so to me this is a good thought. It was said that New York was the place to do this, but I beg to differ. I think many towns would welcome a Cereal Cafe. think about it... Who doesn't like cereal?
Kellogg’s NYC opened on the Fourth of July on Broadway at 49th St., with a menu that is not necessarily just for kids, or for many residents of the five boroughs.
“It’s not for us anyway, it’s for the tourists,” said Art Alvaradi, 41, of Astoria, Queens. “They don’t know any better.” A naive comment, but still a good idea, so I will overlook it.
A little Kellogg history:
John Harvey Kellogg, M.D. (February 26, 1852 – December 14, 1943) was an American medical doctor in Battle Creek, Michigan, who ran a sanitarium using holistic methods, with a particular focus on nutrition, enemas, and exercise. Kellogg was an advocate of vegetarianism for health and is best known for the invention of the breakfast cereal known as corn flakes with his brother, Will Keith Kellogg.
John Harvey Kellogg was an especially strong proponent of nuts, which he believed would save mankind in the face of decreasing food supplies. Though mainly renowned nowadays for his development of corn flakes, Kellogg also patented a process for making peanut butter and invented healthy "granose biscuits."
Back to the Cereal Cafe:
The restaurant believes breakfast cereal is the most important meal of the day, as we all know, and will cater to a clientele eager for food and favorite childhood memories characters such as of Tony the Tiger and Toucan Sam. Unlike those childhood memories The cereal bowls will set you back $7.50, and come in 6 flavors, such as Raisin Bran, the circus, toasted peanuts and banana chips.
You can also get:
"Berry Me in Green Tea" Rice Krispies with fresh strawberries and green tea powder. "Pistachio & lemon" Special K Original, Frosted Flakes, pistachios, lemon zest and thyme. Yum!
A regular bowl of cereal and milk, like the one you make in the kitchen each morning, is $7.50 for a large serving and $6.50 for a small. You might as well get a large...
While the idea does have it's critics, I do like the concept. It is New York, so you have to expect the higher price, but it could be a wonderful thing in your town, or mine.
