Hey lovelies, and how are you all? It's been a super busy week for me but to escape all of that stress-full stuff I thought I'd do a post on a place I visited last weekend with one of my best friends: THE CEREAL KILLER CAFE! I had seen this place all over Instagram and Tumblr and I was so intrigued I just had to go! And if you've never heard of it before, it's exactly what it sounds like. A place where you can literally go in and pick your favourite cereals from over 120 different kinds, milks, quirky toppings... and tuck in! It was such a fun place to visit, with 80's vibes and everything colourful and nostalgic (ahhh the aesthetic!) so this post is going to be a little 'Picture Diary'/ 'Review and I really hope you all enjoy!
Queueing Outside (-ish!)
Whoop Whoop, the famous sign! As we arrived in Brick Lane there was already a small queue outside since the cafe is vv popular, but it was only of about 5 people so we waited it out, spending the time just marvelling at all the childhood cereals around us haha! By the time we got to the till though, we had only just made up our minds so I was glad for the extra time and queuing wasn't bad at all.
Ordering our Bowls!
At the cafe they have over 120 different types of cereal as well as 30 kinds of milk and a bunch of sweet toppings (crazy I know!) You have plenty of time to decide your bowl as you stare at the different cereal box displays around you and there's such a amazing feeling of nostalgia too as you spot your fave childhood cereals on the wall! The bowl sizes come in a small (£2.60) medium (£3.10) and large (£3.60) plus an extra 60p for toppings and international cereals. Pretty pricey for a bowl of cereal - granted, but it's one of things you've just got to try at some point, ya know what I mean?
Service & Cereal
Even though it was busy, the service I have to say was amazing, even though it felt so strange to be served a bowl of cereal hehe! All we had to do was 'grab a spoon and take a seat' as the man at the till said and our bowls were brought to us, complete with an adorable little milk bottle! I ended up ordering a medium bowl topped with crispy m&m's and I couldn't have been happier with it haha. We sat and ate with no rush and it was a lovely experience.
Interior and 80's Decor
My friend and I sat downstairs (in fact I sat exactly on that bed at the back!) in the cafe and I have to say the decor of this place was one of my favourite things. Everything had 80's vibes, from the mis-matching plastic chairs, to the old fashioned cereals displayed all over the cafe.The downstairs seating area even had a wall of retro TV sets playing old cartoons!
So that was our trip to The Cereal Cafe in a post! Overall I absolutely loved it (seriously craving some Lucky Charms right now!) and I would definitely recommend any of you guys to pop in if you're ever in Brick Lane. Also, let me know what your dream order would be at this cafe, we can have a lil' cereal recommendation exchange in the comments haha! Love you all and I'll speak to you in a cheeky double post this Sunday.
