We may be seeing a trend in the competitive small-batch, independently owned ice cream sector of our economy.
Two Spoons, an ice cream shop at 1021 Pearl Street in Boulder, just introduced a breakfast-cereal bar -- a concept that mirrors an idea introduced last month at the Red Trolley in Denver's Highland neighborhood. But that's because in less than two months of business, Two Spoons quickly realized that Pearl Street was a little short on quality, quick breakfast options.

Two Spoons promises that its bar will always offer a variety of grains, like steel-cut oats, cracked whole wheat, savory grits and brown rice porridge. "We cook the grains slowly, the way a lot of people would like to at home but rarely have time for," says David Cohen, founder of Two Spoons and its sister business, Spruce Confections. "You can stop by and in a couple of minutes get anything from a single serving to a family-sized container, and have a really delicious, nourishing breakfast."
