London’s famous Cereal Killer Cafés have been forced to shut due to COVID-19.
Following the lockdown, the iconic cereal café, which first opened in east London in 2014, revealed on Facebook that their locations in Camden and Brick Lane would not reopen. [Featured Image: @cerealkillercafe, Instagram]
Twin co-owners Alan and Gary Keery said the closure was down to the long closure and uncertainty within the industry. Customers will, however, be able to purchase the world’s wacky cereal from the pair’s online store.
It may not be the end, though. In the post they set out their goals to reopen in a year or two, after growing their online store and creating their own products. As they say, it’s “not Cheerio forever”, then.
Following initial controversy at charging for bowls of supermarket cereal in Brick Lane, the café expanded to their second store in Camden. They also now have locations in Birmingham, Dubai, Doha and Kuwait.
Head over to Cereal Killer’s website and browse their unusual collection of cereals. Hopefully we’ll see them back at a London store sooner rather than later.
