Tampa’s Cerealholic Cafe and Bar will open in Ybor City on New Year’s Eve

Be a kid again.


Remember waking up on the weekend ready to sit in front of the TV and watch all your favorite cartoons? Cerealholic Cafe and Bar is all about bringing those memories back.

According to the website, owners Lisa and Darrell Lawson wanted to “create a place where people of all ages could come and have a truly unique experience.” Their menu is full of food our inner kids enjoy including milkshakes, fries, and tater tots. Stop by for a “Hit the Road Jack,” one of Cerealholic’s signature burgers made with Apple Jack-infused meat topped with applewood bacon and fried egg nestled in a waffle hash brown bun.

A warm up happened this month thanks to a couple private events this month for First Responders and the hospitality industry for a sneak peek, but the restaurant is slated to officially open New Year’s Eve with a grand opening party with live music, food, and champagne. 

Cerealholic Cafe and Bar—located in Ybor City at 1909 N 15th St. in the old Cheezy's Bistro & Speakeasy—is veteran-owned. Show an active military ID or state-issued ID with veteran designation for a 15% discount.

Cerealholic Cafe and Bar will be open daily from 7 a.m.-1 a.m. for breakfast, dinner, and a late night snack. It's the second Tampa cereal bar to open in the last three months.
