The Cereal Killer Cafe – Brick Lane
Breakfast is by far the best meal of the day. There’s so much choice: from pancakes to smoked salmon, avocado to eggs – but sometimes all you want is a good ‘ole classic bowl of cereal… and on Saturday morning, that was exactly how I felt. So, what did we do? Well, we made our way to Brick Lane for the best bowl of cereal you can get!
Welcome to the Cereal Killer Cafe!
As soon as you walk in, you’re welcomed by shelves among shelves of cereal high and low, with friendly faces including Sulley, Jasmine and Aladdin.
There’s a board from which you can choose what you want, which was quite overwhelming considering the amount of choice! Luckily, because it’s so popular, there’s a big enough queue to give you enough time to decide on all the goodies available.
You get to choose what cereal, followed by what milk and lastly what toppings. From dorset granola to fruit loops, chocolate to rice milk and mars to oreo toppings, the choice is never ending…
There’s an entire array of American and English cereals, plus you can get pop tarts too! Now, I’m usually very good with my morning cereal and try to stick to oats and unsweetened organic almond milk with berries, flaxseed etc. (ya know, the whole shabang), so it was a complete treat for me to indulge in something so sugary that morning – and I tell you, I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
You can either make up your own cereal combination or choose some of the ones they’ve created – which is what I did for one of my bowls. This beautiful bowl in front of you was called the ‘Don’t be a cinnamain’, which consisted of cinnamon toasties, cinnamon crunch and cinnamon loops! If you ever go to the Cereal Killer Cafe, trust me when I say it would be a cin not to try this.
Next up, was the holy grail, the almighty LUCKY CHARMS. This was the first time I’d ever had lucky charms.. Yeaa, I see you, with your judging glance, raised eyebrows and side eyes, but as I told you, I’m very strong willed with my oats and almond milk in the mornings 😛
The first spoonful did not disappoint…
I was so eager to eat spoonful number 2 that I tried to stuff too much in my mouth in one go and spilt some.
I knew then that I had to cerea
ously work on my table manners.
The cafe itself was super cool and super retro, with 80s and 90s decor and music…
even down to the boardgames and paraphernalia.
We reminisced about the Spice Girls, S Club 7, The Queen’s Nose, Bernard’s Watch, Zzzap! Kenan and Kel… Please comment below if you remember these or had any other fave 90s programmes/bands!
The coffee was pretty darn good too.
Fully satisfied, we went exploring Brick Lane and stumbled across a market stand with fresh coconuts. How could we resist!?
You could get coconut coffee, hot chocolate or just standard coconut water, which is what we went for as we needed some refreshment after all that sugar.
We stumbled upon a cool place to snap some outfit pics incase anyone was interested in what I was wearing…
Pretty much all topshop apart from my Mulberry bag, Asos coat and Sainsbury’s espadrilles, which I got for a bargainous £12! I bought them in store and couldn’t find a link to them, but have linked to the more expensive version by PRISM below, proving how great a dupe these are – and by the looks of it, I personally prefer!
