FOODIE FINDS: Cereal Boxx

By MIKI JENNINGS

Tucked away just off University Boulevard, the Cereal Boxx has been giving University of Arizona students and University wanderers a quiet nook for breakfast since 2007.

The menu is loaded with sweet breakfast fare: cereal, oatmeal, parfaits and Belgian waffles. It also offers more savory items such as scrambled egg wraps and bagel sandwiches with lox and cream cheese.

Drinks include smoothies and a full-service espresso bar for those who need caffeine in the morning.

Cereal Boxx has a large assortment of cereals and an even larger selection of toppings.

With cereal choices like Kix, Lucky Charms, Cap’n Crunch and Life, there is something to strike just about anyone’s fancy.

Customers can create their own breakfast bowls, perhaps mixing Reese’s Puffs or Cocoa Krispies with Nutella or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Want something a tad more healthful? Try Kashi or Special K with strawberries, blueberries or bananas.

Health-conscious breakers of fast will also appreciate menu items like oatmeal topped with fruit and parfaits with fruit, creamy yogurt and granola.

Outside of breakfast, the folks at Cereal Boxx introduced a full lunch menu late last year. They now serve paninis, soup and loaded baked potatoes. Varieties include chicken and buffalo sauce, chorizo and salsa, chicken and ranch and cheddar and broccoli.
