    This has been floating around Facebook for a few weeks now. I think the most cutting comment about those guys was asking why they'd modelled themselves on the singer from Lostprophets' police mugshot.

    Even if I liked the idea, I'd be so worried about finding beard hairs floating in my milk bowl I could never visit the place.

    • My first thought was that it can't be real, then I remembered that Urban has quite a lot to discuss about porridge, so there might well be hordes of fans of rare brekky cereals just dying to go to this place.
    And now I think that, with all the bright coloured boxes and old adverts and little cereal-box toys, it could be great fun if you're in the right state of mind, which probably wouldn't be at breakfast time. So if they opened at more of a sort of late-night schedule, it might get by for a while.

    I love cereal as a kind of anytime demi-meal. More cafe-type places should sell a range of cereals.

    That cannot be real :D How can anyone be/look/act such a characature? This look is surely so tired now that true hipsters moved on years ago. A lot of tattooed youngsters left in their wake with bad beards :D

    Christ I'm so OLD :D :oops:

    Peak beard, wall to wall wheat & e numbers, they will probably do well. :(

    Can't watch that vid, it's too early to get the rage. :D

    Just how many bowls of cereal does one have to sell to pay the rent on a café in Brick Lane? It's not a type of dish that requires skilled preparation so ain't gonna be able to charge too much.

    I dunno though. I once went to Lord's for a Middlesex match and went in search of a cafe for breakfast. This place showed me a narrow selection of cereals at exhorbitant prices and no sign of a fry up.

    Fucking St John's Wood

    Nigel Slater is knocking up a column for next weeks Guardian on why it's actually a lot harder than you think, and is absolutely definitely worth a fiver of your hard earned for a bowl of Weetabix.

    Problem: Love cereal. Hate hipster joints.
    Solution? Enjoy a bowl at home.

    Can I just point out that we were angry about this weeks ago on the Hackney thread? ;)

    The inside cover advert of the Guardian Guide this week is some bearded tattooed hipster advertising e-cigs.

    So that style is probably on its way out now too.

    Whatever happens next will probably be just as annoying though.

    I hope it's home grown annoying as opposed to entirely copied from NYC annoying.

    Mummy and Daddy won't mind, their property investment goes up anyway and they have a business to flush expenses through.
