With the closure of Band of Outsiders and the Milk Bar window next door, NYC has been, tragically, without a store-slash-dessert bar for some seven weeks now. But! Prospect Heights' Kith NYC, which debuted in 2011, is reopening tomorrow after extensive renovations, complete with an in-store cereal bar.

High Snobiety reports that owner Ronnie Fieg is ready to unveil the all-white, 3,000-square-foot space, anchored by an installation of 750 Air Jordan II sneakers suspended from the ceiling. The brand lineup will remain largely the same, including footwear from Timberland and Birkenstock and apparel by Balmain, Y-3, and more. Fieg revamped his Noho store not long ago as well.

And about that cereal bar: the New York Times says there's 24 varieties to choose from—like Cookie Crisp and Cinnamon Toast Crunch—served in single-serving Mylar bags inside small shoe boxes, each of which have been designed by athletes like Andre Agassi. The menu also includes milk, coffee, and cereal-flavored soft serve—and since the cereal bar is offered via a street-facing window, you can even enjoy it before Kith opens tomorrow.
