Cat cafes are popping up all over so who's to say that a cereal cafe wouldn't be a hit as well?
It really appears that cereal is making a comeback despite companies not being able to milk it for all it's worth. Either that or nostalgia is getting the best of Generations X and Y. Perhaps their childhoods weren't so bad because they ate Trix or Rice Krispies every morning.
London is a place where many trends get a boost and twins Gary and Alan Keery have decided to open up a cereal cafe in London called The Cereal Killer Cafe. It features breakfast cereals from the 80's and 90's and the people who loved them.
The cafe pipes in music from the 80's and 90's and has formica furniture along with cereal boxes from the past. The menu will consist of over 100 cereals from 7 different countries, your choice of different types of milk and a little side of Pop tarts. A bowl of cereal will cost as much as box of cereal at the grocery store -- between $4-$5.50 depending on the size of the bowl.
This cereal nostalgia restaurant is the first of its kind in the UK but there is a chain in the good ole USA called Cereality.
According to Cereality's website: "Customers choose from their favorite brands and toppings. Pajama-clad Cereologists fill the orders. And customers choose and add their own milk, just the way they like it."
I bet you can't eat just one? Oh wait, that was a potato chip ad. But even so, I can't eat just one bowl of cereal, so at $4-5.50 a bowl, I'll eat mine at home in my PJ's and do a couple of helpings from the box.
Not a bad gig though for servers working there -- being able to wear your PJ's to work!
