A cafe of Cap’n Crunch and Cocoa Puffs (say that three times fast)

cerealIf the Clog were to ask you the top three reasons you miss home, we’re willing to bet that one of those reasons includes food. And what food could make you more nostalgic for home (and your childhood) than Cocoa Puffs and Lucky Charms? If you are indeed part of the Saturday morning cartoons-and-colorful-cereal gang (also try to say that three times fast), we have good news!

Cafe Yesterday [1] not only serves all kinds of funky cereal, you can also top it off with chocolate chips, cookies, gummy bears and whipped cream among other things. We’re guessing your mom never let you do that.

The cafe is more than just your childhood breakfast dreams come true [2], however. Much of the food is actually healthy, such as “The happy hippie,” which contains granola, flax seed, honey and fruit. The cafe has a retro vibe to it and, in addition to comfort food, also provides comfy couches, vinyl records and a space for performances. They regularly host jazz and blues performances [3] on Fridays.

As if that isn’t cool enough, the shop is actually nonprofit. Any money left after meeting the costs of running the place goes to local charities supporting arts, education and the homeless.

How truly Berkeleyan.
