6 Of London’s Quirkiest Cafés
London is home to some of the world’s most amazing restaurants and every cuisine you can think of is crammed into the bustling city centre. From traditional favourites such as Indian and Chinese to Thai, Japanese, Korean, Mexican and more vegan and vegetarian restaurants than you can shake a stick at but what if you’re after something that’s a little bit… Different?
Identical, bearded twins (that should help pull in the female fans) Gary and Alan Keery opened up the doors to their fabulously named ‘Cereal Killer Cafe’ cafe in Brick Lane in 2014, a venue which is a “nostalgic cafe displaying hundreds of pieces of memorabilia from the 80s and 90s”, designed to “give you the real sugar rush feeling you had when you were a kid”.
If the nostalgia alone isn’t enough to get you through the doors the range of more than 100+ different types of cereal will certainly get you drooling, with over 12 different types of milk to pair with your chosen crunch and roughly 20 different toppings including Oreo’s and marshmallows there’s something for everyone.
Whilst things didn’t get off to the best start – the twins tried to crowdfund the project but didn’t get enough backing for the donations they needed. Luckily, the buzz from social media gained from the campaign helped them put the wheels in motion in order for them to get rent and loan.
If cereal isn’t your thing there are still more than enough weird and wonderful cafe’s in London to keep even the hippest hipster happy.
