The Cereal Killer Cafe run by brothers Alan & Gary Geery, follows a line of pop up shops that specialise in niche things like maid cafe, butler cafe, Lady Dinah's Cat cafe and more. This is the UKs first speciality Cereal Cafe, they are obsessed with everything cereal related and even sell memorabilia.
In total they sell over 120 different types of cereal from around the world, To create the perfect bowl of cereal you can choose from 30 different varieties of milk and 20 different toppings from candy sprinkles to fresh fruit. The bowls come in one size but you have an option of three portions of cereal, if you select medium or large you are welcome to mix different types of cereal together.
The cereals are split into two sections American and British brands so you can indulge in the acclaimed Lucky Charms only available in the USA or seasonal ones which will be available stills tocks last or go for good old fashioned Kellog's Frosties if your not feeling adventurous.
This place is a great alternative for coffee and dessert lovers as it serves hot drinks and pop tarts too. A great way to spend breakfast, lunch or dinner in the nostalgic cafe displaying hundreds of pieces of memorabilia displayed from the 80s and 90s. The only draw back is the dim lighting for evenings as me and my friends attended at 9pm.
Also people with special dietary requirements can eat with ease with a basic option of skimmed, semi skimmed and whole milk included or upgrade to soya, oat, alpro, rice for an extra 0.40p
My choice of the evening was Reese's Peanut butter puffs with semi skimmed milked topped with coconut syrup. It suprisingly was not sickeningly sweet. The coconut syrup is a great alternative to sugar or honey which dilutes in the milk.
Press about this cafe has been mixed and I think after visiting you realise it is a place to socialise and snack like a n alternative to a coffee shop. It is not something you may do everyday (or you may if your bonkers about cereal). Great place to shake up your routine and enjoy the surroundings of bricklane. You can also hire the venue for events! ~Aisha Anime~
