Novel retail idea – The UK’s first cereal café to open in Shoreditch

12th November 2014

This novel retail idea is the perfect cure for any hangover! The Cereal Killer café will be the UK’s first cereal café and is due to open in Brick Lane, London early next month. The café is the brainchild of Northern Irish hipster twins Alan and Gary Keery who raised some of the money for their independent venture through crowdfunding website, Indiegogo.

The Cereal Killer Café will be serving cereals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, stocking more than 100 different varieties of cereal from around the globe along with 12 different types of milk and 20 toppings. In addition to this they will also serve a selection of 18 different pop tarts, toast with a choice of spreads and tea and coffee.

The Café will stock everything from Lucky Charms to Special K so that every taste is catered for – from healthy to sugar rush! The menu also includes exotic cereals from America, South Africa, France, Australia and South Korea, providing a chance for people to revisit a familiar childhood favourite – or try something new. The twins will also be creating special ‘cereal cocktails’ including ‘Smore than Words’ – a concoction of Golden Grahams and mini marshmallows with chocolate milk and ‘Crunchy Nutcase’ – featuring crunchy nut cornflakes combined with crunchy nut cluster, walnuts and pecans, drenched in hazelnut milk.

Opening over two floors in London’s trendy Brick Lane the café will be decorated with and sell cereal memorabilia from around the globe. The nostalgic theme is continued through events including a ‘Saturday Morning Breakfast Club’ where diners will be able to watch old cartoons played on vintage television sets. The comfortably decorated interior will feature a wide range of cereal history from money boxes to skateboards, and bike reflectors to milk bottles.

The Cereal Killers café will be open from 7am to 8pm from 10 December.
