Mix n’ Munch opened in 2010 as the world’s first cereal bar and grilled cheese cafe. The restaurant reintroduced two classic comfort food favorites and allowed guests to customize their own creations. The idea for Mix n’ Munch came from two sisters who love cereal and grilled cheese. All her life Kim had deep affection for cereal, so much so that as she got older she consistently felt a longing to open her own cereal shop. Kim’s younger sister, Heather, always loved cheese, so it was not surprising that she became an avid maker of delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. As the two got older, an idea materialized while Heather was working on her Master’s thesis at USC. Kim and Heather realized that their two favorite classic comfort foods were in fact a perfect pair to feature at a restaurant. With the support of their families they were able to make Mix n’ Munch a reality!
Over time Mix n’ Munch has morphed into a breakfast, brunch and lunch concept. While the cereal bar and mouth watering grilled sandwiches have remained a core of the restaurant, they have added more breakfast and brunch items such as their famous breakfast tacos and cereal, french toast combinations. Mix n’ Munch also offers fresh salads and amazing sides such as homemade tomato soup, fresh fruit, tater tots, macaroni and cheese (add bacon!) and more! Wash everything down with one of our famous fresh Watermelon and Pineapple-Orange waters.
Five years in, Mix n’ Munch continues to be a staple for South Pasadena locals while attracting customers from all over wanting a comforting, casual and delicious dining experience.
