The cereal cafe is finally coming to Ireland*
*If you have tickets to Electric Picnic.

IRELAND IS GETTING its own Cereal Killer Cafe.

In a way.

The cafe, which serves nothing but cereal (surprisingly enough) has been a hit in London since opening last year.

Its founders, Belfast brothers Alan and Gary Keery are now finally bowing to the Irish demand and bringing a pop-up cafe to Electric Picnic.

The brothers opened their first café in Shoreditch, London in December and opened a second café in Camden only six months later.

The café, which sells 120 different cereals from around the world has proved a huge hit with tourists and locals alike and now festival-goers have their chance to sample it.

Alan says that the calls from Ireland have been too strong to ignore.

“Since opening, we have had huge support from everyone back home in Ireland, and we really wanted to give people there a taste of what we do.

It may not be the full menu we have in the café, but we will be offering six of our most popular cereal cocktails (different cereal combinations with toppings and flavoured milks) poptarts, toast and coffee. It’ll be great to see how everyone reacts to it, as opening a café in Dublin has been a dream of ours.

Gary added that the cafe will be needed by many bleary-eyed revellers.

“You wont be able to miss us in our milk crate stand, and a bowl of cereal with ice cold milk is the perfect cure for those morning dry mouths.”
