My children could eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner, if I let them. Fortunately, they are happy with the mostly wholesome cereals like Life and Kix. But every once in a while, I’ll return home from the grocery store with a “special” cereal — you know the kind. The kind of cereal that has lots of sugar, bright colors on the box, and let’s be real, is just so much more fun to eat than, say, Cheerios. (Not trying to throw shade, Cheerios — I do love you.) These sugar bombs in a box are a special treat in our house, and my kids get really excited when they see them in the cupboard. So when I told these same children that we’d be visiting Day & Night Cereal Bar Indy — a restaurant that serves nothing but cereal and desserts made from cereal — they were all in.
Cereal Bar in Indianapolis
Located in the Greenwood Park Mall, Day & Night Cereal Bar offers exotic cereal bowls and shakes made with combinations of cereals. Basically, it’s all cereal, all the time time at Day & Night.
Cereal Bowls and Cereal Shakes
Visitors can choose from a menu of fun cereal flavor combinations, such as the Homer Simpson, featuring Honey Nut Cheerios, Hershey’s Kisses cereal and chocolate donut sprinkles; Unicorn Breath, featuring Fruity Lucky Charms, Fruity Pebbles, whipped cream and strawberry drizzle; or Mucha Lucha, featuring Cinnamon Toast Crunch and whipped cream, topped with churro cereal and a buttery cinnamon roll sprinkled on top. You can also BYOB, or Build Your Own Bowl by choosing any two cereals and two toppings. The cereal bowls are served with a container of milk, so you can pour as much as you want over your sugary concoction — they offer whole milk, skim milk, almond milk and oat milk.
You can get these same flavor combinations in a shake, which you can customize to your liking, if you wish. My family all chose to get shakes the last time we visited Day and Night, and they were delicious. We opted for two Unicorn Breath shakes, one Strawberry Shortcake shake and one Liquid Gold. We all agreed that our shakes tasted like drinking rich, thick cereal milk (in the best way), with the added bonus of crunch from the cereal toppings, whipped cream and other goodies on top.
