Morning Glory: Rethink the Drink

If your morning routine involves running late, your breakfast is most likely served in a cup. Here are three places serving a.m. drinks you'll think about the rest of the day.


The Froot Loop Shake ($3.50, regular) will remind you of happy (and hyper) Saturday mornings drinking that last bit of sugary cereal milk while watching cartoons. The famously fruity cereal is crushed, blended with soft-serve vanilla ice cream and topped with a crunchy garnish. The shakes are also available in Honey-Nut Cheerios and Reese's Puff flavors. 19985 Lake Road, Rocky River, 440-331-7850

Gypsy Beans & Baking Co.

Maple bacon cupcakes may be all the rage, but Gypsy Beans & Baking Co. owner Nicole Gillota noticed nobody was infusing one of morning's signature drinks with the beloved breakfast flavor. Her Maple Bacon Latte ($4.45, medium) is currently one of the shop's seasonal flavors. You'll also find Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Spice heating up the menu. 6425 Detroit Ave., Cleveland, 216-939-9009,

Nervous Dog Coffee Bar

Don't turn up your nose at apple pie for breakfast, especially when you can enjoy it on the go. Nervous Dog's Apple Pie Latte ($4.45, large) satiates your sweet tooth with its mix of tart apple and spicy cinnamon syrups combined with Ghiradelli caramel, creating a drinkable version of the all-American dessert. 1530 W. Market St., Akron, 330-864-2326; 4161 Steels Pointe, Stow, 330-929-2326,
