    but it will be made with organic free range milk, hand milked from rare heritage breeds of cows and served in vintage hand made ceramic bowls made using a technique that is no longer being used by anyone else in the world.

    Oh man, they've got the post-it notes for suspended cereal and everything.

    We love you, melbourne. We really do.

    I'll be ok getting my cereal from local supermarket.

    Cereal is for peasants.

    I'm very cranky in the mornings. You don't want to try to lecture me about nutrition before I've had my oats and during could have you wearing them.

    Is it expensive? Maybe a little. But people pay $3.50, $4.50, $5.50 for coffee, and in bulk that's not $5 worth either - but people pay it.

    I can see it being something useful for people who have a busy rush off in the morning and have time to get breakfast later, or after they arrive in the city; alternatively it would work for people who want variety, something different each day, or just have cereal occasionally. The number of times I've bought a box of Corn Flakes or similar and it's gone off before I've had more than a few bowls I've lost track. Admittedly their menu is a little bit light on, but meh.

    Don't like it? Don't eat there. It's not rocket science. Or are you going to complain about the abundance of coffee shops, and Subway stores next?

    Agreed, I don't drive coffee but can't recall complaining about it.

    I like the idea of a cereal bar, if I want a snack I wouldn't mind being able tor get some quick fruit loops.

    Another thing that pisses me off is the abundance of coffee shops and subway shops.

    Ha I saw one of these from the UK on one of the morning shows about 4 months ago and they said the idea was spreading around the world faster than they could keep up with it.

    Not sure how this one really compares with the ones it copies but the UK ones didn't just have cereal you could by at the local supermarket they sourced the stuff world wide. Still a bit of a hairy fairy idea but I suppose it's just the sort of thing many upwardly mobile city dwellers will think is a great idea and they'll be happy to pay for it.

    If anything the thing that bothers me most about this is how they serve it. I mean seriously, who eats cereal out of a jar, or a wine glass?

    A bowl will do, thankyouverymuch.

    It's just the same as the silly trend of upmarket bars serving cocktails in decrepit old jars.

    Ooh look at me I'm drinking out of a jar I must be so edgy and hip.

    That's the secret. You get to work, logon the computer and open up a file (gotta look like youre working already) and then go out for breakfast :leet:

    i wonder if they have a regular bowl and cutlery. Or do you have to eat your cereal off a crack spoon

    While listening to Radiohead's Creep - the unreleased acoustic live in Japan version, not studio recorded.

    So edgy.
