Cereal and Grilled Cheese Cafe. Really?

What will they think of next?

They say most small  businesses fail within the first two years, so I have to wonder about the chance for success of Mix n’ Munch, a cereal and grilled cheese cafe coming soon to the heart of downtown South Pasadena.

If I had to open a cereal and grilled cheese cafe I suppose South Pas would be the place to do it. This is definitely a kid-dominated town, and I have to assume kids are the target audience here. But still, how many bowls of cereal do you have to sell to pay rent on the most popular commercial stretch of Mission Street?

Not to mention, don’t most people go out to eat so they don’t have to go through the trouble of preparing a meal? And aren’t a bowl of cereal and a grilled cheese sandwich two of the easier meals to prepare?

I’ll reserve (anymore) judgement for opening day, but if you happen to see the Mix n’ Munch sign replaced by a for lease sign, remember, you heard it here first.

  1. Isn’t this just a poor knock-off of The Cereal Bowl?

  2. yeah…. i just checked out their facebook page. this is going to be a big failure. i had hope for a second, sometimes those things really take off because they serve old favorites in new ways, but it looks like they are just serving old favorites the old way.

  3. Blame the Brooklyn hipsters for this kind of shit. They think they are kicking it cool if they go out and eat the retro meals mommy used to make because they wouldn’t eat anything else. I give it nine months.

  4. I ate here this weekend. Great food, good service, very family friendly, seems like it will work imo.
