A new sweet business celebrates its debut on downtown St. Pete's prized 600 block.

The Cereal Bar: Adventures in Ice Cream—located at 689 Central Ave., adjacent to the Floridan Social Club—is set to to be St. Pete's newest spot for nostalgia-driven desserts.

According to its Instagram, the new dessert spot opens Wednesday, Nov. 9, although it's unsure what its operating hours are after today.

There’s large, step-by-step "how to order" instructions plastered on The Cereal Bar’s wall that instruct customers to first choose the size of their dessert, which ice cream they want, what cereal(s) they’d like to mix in, and finally, what sweet toppings will finish it off.

Core ice cream flavors include vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, with temporary seasonal flavors like peppermint, cinnamon and espresso. Current cereal options—which are blended into the ice cream— are Apple Jacks, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Pebbles, Lucky Charms, a variety of different Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Fruity Pebbles among many, many more.

And if your cereal and ice cream concoction doesn't satisfy your sweet tooth, you can always top your dessert with chocolate syrup, peanuts, caramel, chocolate chips, Oreo cookies, Pop Tart crumbles or sprinkles.

According to IlovetheBurg, Urban Creamery (stylized "URBAN") temporarily closed back in August and has been undergoing its cereal-forward makeover for the past few months. Urban Creamery debuted at 689 Central Ave. back in 2016, and was known for its unique ice cream flavors, plant-based options and freshly-made waffles.
