The surest symbol of Shorditchery has exported its technicolour brand of breakfast to Birmingham’s Bullring shopping centre. The hipstertastic venue takes the humble breakfast cereal and adds spoonfuls of nostalgia, quirk and (one assumes) irony, to serve up a haven for every big kid out there.
Looking beyond these understated shores for inspiration, Cereal Killer Cafe does more than just your run of the mill cornflakes and rice krispies. Instead, prepare to discover a whole rainbow of sugariffic American cereals from Hershey’s Cookies and Cremes to Apple Jacks, Chocolate Lucky Charms and Poppin’ Pebbles.
And once you’ve worked your way through the stateside sweet stuff, why not embark on a cereal voyage around the world? From Spanish Estrellitas (Little Stars) to Australian Milo, the range has lots of international treats as well. MIlk comes in a whopping 30 different varieties and flavours, and there are toppings like hundreds and thousands to be added as well.
Expect to pay around the £4 mark for a bowl of goodies. In return for that you also get to enjoy the retrotastic atmosphere. Think arcade games, bike reflectors and other bits of 90s memorabilia that you didn’t realise you missed. This is a place squarely aimed at the wistful Millennial market.
