Belfast brothers to open London's first Cereal Café

If you were ever overwhelmed with excitement when your mam bought a Kellog's fun pack in the weekly shop instead of the normal box of Cornflakes, then boy have we the news for you.

Two Belfast-born entrepreneurs - identical twins, as it happens - are to open London's first café dedicated entirely to breakfast cereal. Two whole floors of breakfast cereals, to be precise.

The Cereal Killer Café - yep, that's the name - will open to the public next month in London's Shoreditch, stocking over 100 different types of breakfast cereal from America, South Africa, France, Australia, South Korea, the UK and elsewhere, as well as "cereal memorabilia", whatever the hell that is.

The ambience will be set off by TVs playing Saturday morning cartoons for that ultimate nostalgia hit.

Almost incredibly, the brothers' café won't be the world's first - there are already cereal cafés in the US including an entire chain.

"We are obsessed with everything cereal," said the café's founders Alan and Gary Keery.

"If we can source it, we will sell it."

The brothers Keery will also be offering 12 different varieties of milk and 20 different toppings.

Their dream has become a reality after the boys saved up £20k of their own cash and crowdfunded further investment online.

"To give you the real sugar rush feeling you had when you were a kid come and visit us for breakfast, lunch or dinner in our nostalgic cafe displaying hundreds of pieces if memorabilia from the 80s and 90s."

The Cereal Killer Café is at at 139 Brick Lane and opens to the public on December 10. Find out more about them on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Nice. But will it take off?
