Joseph E CoffeeAfter a long day in downtown San Antonio, I was walking to my car when the thought of comfort food caused me to smile uncontrollably. No, not your traditional, calorie-packed comfort food, but another type of comfort food – cereal. I was immediately on my way to Joseph E. Coffee, San Antonio’s first and only coffee and cereal bar.

Whether you’re looking for a bowl of Apple Jacks to a more extravagant bowl of cereal, Joseph E.’s got it! My first bowl was perfectly named The Southtown and composed of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, French Toast Crunch, bananas, vanilla almond milk and a maple drizzle. Who knew you could mix and add fruit to cereals!? My mind had been sheltered for so long.
