Looking for great vibes, friendly service, and a chance to enjoy all your breakfast favorites in a whole new way? If so, Milky Cereal Bar is definitely calling your name. Their creations pair ice cream and cereal, somehow creating a sweet treat all its own.

A family-owned and operated joint in the Kukui Grove Center shopping mall, this Kauai eatery serves as the top spot for unique sweet treats made on-demand. As you waltz through the doors, their pastel aesthetic promises to instantly set you at ease, as does the bright and cheerful Alohas that come your way.

While gazing upon the menu, you’ll get to see all the flavor combination possibilities dance through your mind. They list them all out loud and clear, so you can build your own creation from top to bottom. The journey starts with the selection between their Milky Swirl and Cup. The Swirl offers a soft-serve vanilla ice cream base, while the cup lets them turn the vanilla base into a shake.

From there, you choose one type of cereal to add as a mix-in, such as Cookie Crisp, Froot Loops, Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch, or Apple Jacks. Then, you pick a single topping, such as Oreo crumbs, strawberries, or M&Ms. The finishing touch is the drizzle, which comes in a variety of flavors as well, including chocolate, honey, and pineapple.

If you prefer to breeze through your selections, you can go with their pre-made offerings instead. Each one has a brilliant flavor combo leading the way, treating you to all your favorites in every bite.

Must-try items on their menu include:

I Like You a Latte
If you love coffee, chocolate, and cinnamon, you’re going to want to try ‘I Like You a Latte.’ This pre-made delight starts with Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Dunkin’ Mocha Latte cereal in a vanilla ice cream base. To that, they add even more Mocha Latte cereal over top before pouring on the coffee drizzle.

Kravin’ You
When you’re looking for the perfect blend of fruit and chocolate, treat yourself to the ‘Kravin’ You.’ They create this scrumptious delight by pouring Krave and Cocoa Pebbles in vanilla ice cream. Once that’s mixed together, another dose of Cocoa Pebbles land on top along with a chocolate syrup drizzle.

Batch Made in Heaven
If cookies are your jam, order up the ‘Batch Made in Heaven’ for a flavor combo to remember. This sweet treat begins with vanilla ice cream adorned with plenty of Cookie Crisp and cookie dough. After that, it gets topped with Oreo sprinkles and more Cookie Crisp before the chocolate drizzle goes over it all.  

The Apple of My Pie
Apple and cinnamon are a timeless combination that pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream in ‘The Apple of My Pie.’ To build all the flavors, they mix Apple Jacks and Cinnamon Toast Crunch with the ice cream. To that, they add more Apple Jacks plus Teddy Grahams and a caramel drizzle.

Their portions are pretty large, especially since all the cereal, toppings, and drizzles provide quite a sugary kick. So, don’t feel bad if you can’t finish it all. If you’re swinging by with a friend, consider sharing one dessert between you both. You will have to agree on all the flavors, however, which is definitely much easier said than done.

Insider Tips:
-The cereal bar sits on the northern side of the shopping center, so park near the First Hawaiian Bank to get your sweet fix fast.
-As they get settled in, they plan to add a flavor of the month to the rotation. So, keep your eyes peeled for that addition.
-If you want to enjoy your treats while on the go, you definitely want to get the Milky Cups over the Swirl.
