Jon Taffer, the "Bar Rescue" host who loves to fix bars by screaming "shut it down" and adding "not one, but two two-touch POS systems, " apparently did just that to one Ybor City restaurant, which is set to become the latest Florida establishment featured on the show
The Loft Elevated Bar + Food
re-opened early this month after first opening as the nostalgic, milk slurpin' Cerealholic Cafe and Bar
in December 2020.
says that The Loft—still at 1909 N 15th St., former home of Ybor's LGBTQ+ bar The Social—was the subject of an upcoming episode of "Bar Rescue," though the air date for the show is unknown.
Gone now are Cerealholic's cereal bar, signature burgers with Apple Jack-infused meat, replaced instead with a Loft weekend brunch menu
that aims to "elevate" your breakfast with items like pancake platter, steak and eggs, biscuits and gravy—all served Saturday-Sunday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. It's non-brekkie menu
includes hot chicken & waffles, an anytime breakfast sandwich, BBQ pork nachos, cheese dips and a Cuban panini.
That Jon Taffer sure has the best ideas—and don't worry, it looks like drag shows are still on.
Hours at The Loft Elevated Bar + Food in Ybor City are Thursday 4:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m., Friday 4:30 p.m.-1 a.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-1 a.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
