‘Bowls and Spoons’ cereal bar coming to Charleston
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Crunchy, sweet cold and fast describes the new kind of bar that’s taking up space in Charleston’s Elk City.
Andrew Palmer and his wife Heather are opening a cereal bar there. They said this is something they’ve been thinking about for a year.
“Most people are like ‘cereal bar?’ And they don’t know what it is until you break it down for them,” Andrew Palmer said.
“It’s going to be more of a you can come in and get a bowl of Fruit Loops if you want to, but if you want something different, we are going to have something different for you,” he said.
Andrew said they will unveil a menu this weekend during Charleston’s OktoberWest and hope to set up shop in the next few months.
“We’ll do tables and bar stools and back here will be a lounge,” Heather Palmer said.
They hope to take customers back in time.
“We will have big screen TV with nothing but old school cereal commercials from the 70s and 80s,” Andrew said.
He said they will serve about 100 cereals.
“We’ll have lactose intolerant milks. We will have everything you can think of; we will have a Health Nut corner,” Andrew said.
They say ice cream, fruit, swirls and toppings will be on the menu, but Andrew said that doesn’t mean it comes with a high price tag.
“Its not going to be a $10 burger; it is going to be a $4 bowl of cereal,” he said.
The name of the bar is called Bowls and Spoons.
“We’ve never had nothing like it, and it’s in all the big cities, and we are bringing it here and here in Elk City I want to be involved in that. It’s got an extra beat in the pulse in this part of the business district.”
The owners say they plan to open early in the morning and close late at night.
