If you hadn't quite realised yet (from the numerous Instagram posts and #LondonLife tweets- apologies for those), I really adore living in good old London town. One of the best things is being able to hop on a tube and go anywhere you fancy every weekend. On Sundays this, of course, tends to be anywhere selling food of the brunch variety and a few weeks ago my sister and I swapped the eggs/waffles for something a little bit different- the Cereal Killer Cafe.
You've probably already heard of CKC, but they have shops in Brick Lane and Camden Stables (our branch of choice) and the basis is a retro 90's throwback to bright bygone cereals from the UK & US mixed together in cocktail concoctions with sweet treat toppings and pop tarts on the side... as a former cereal junkie who has forced herself to favour sensible porridge most mornings, this place is a dream. The choice of cereals is crazy, with everything from lucky charms and froot loops to ice cream pebbles and toffee crisp. You can also go for grown up options like dorset granola and special k, but ain't no one got time for that when something called 'applejacks marshmallows' is on offer. You can choose your own cereal, milk and topping combo, but I opted for a set cocktail called 'Chocopottomus' featuring cocopops, krave, a kinder happy hippo and chocolate milk. Yes it was a complete chocolate sugar rush and also completely incredible. My newly vegan sister went for 'Did I tell you I was vegan?' featuring reese's puffs, oreos and soy milk which she reported was very delicious too. We were a bit more safe with our tea and peach drink choices, but there are retro fizzy options and a huge selection of pop tarts and toast toppings for anyone who can handle the extra sugar. I have heard other people say they think at around £4 a bowl Cereal Killer Cafe is a bit pricey, but for the cereal selection and fun experience I think it's definitely worth a visit and would probably work even better as a mid afternoon/late night sweet treat. Spoons at the ready.
Where will you be brunching this weekend?
