The Cereal Killer Cafe, located in Brick Lane, London. The only cafe in the UK which sells.. well only cereal. Started up by two twins from Belfast, the cafe has had huge attention even before opening. With coverage in The Independent, BBC News and Channel 4, it's not doubt first week of opening its incredibly busy.
Think lucky charms, every variety of Shreddies and even cereal jewellery to make up one of the most 'must-eat' places currently in London.
Walking in I was far too excited. With a good 10 minutes of deciding on what I wanted I finally chose with 'Boo-Berry', the american cereal filled with chocolate and blue berry fruity biscuits. Topped with M&M's, the small bowl was a steal for being only £2.50. In additon I could not help myself but grab a slice of cereal cheese cake. delicish.

The environment of the store was cereal oriented, literally. With a hint of a fantasy land (there were dancing coca-cola cans with sunglasses. 'cool'). Cereal art, cereal jewellery, cereal vintage boxes, it was a breakfast goers dream. It was quirky, personal and hugely creavite. It's an ideal place for the quick stops and the catchup with friends. With friendly service, and the employees being just as excited as the customers it was a fun-atmosphere from start to end (even though I was sad after finishing the cake!)
A place I hugely recommend in visiting. Due to it's backlash from Channel 4, claiming it's far too expensive for the location, I personally feel it was ideal. The novelty of the idea made the whole experience and travel worth it! I would most definitely go back, but maybe next time be more adventurous with my cereal choices, or buy two bowls.
