    I can excuse that given that he was probably quite angry about how the reporter dealt with the situation. And then an angry mob descended on them one day and attacked the place when there were customers including children inside.

    I'm not for or against them personally but I'd be pretty fucked off if I'd been on the receiving end of that. I'd probably lash out too.

    There is something a bit rich about people complaining about businesses making a margin on what they produce versus the input cost simply because it is cereal and milk served in a cafe.

    I'm pretty sure that most cafes make a margin on their inputs otherwise they wouldn't exist.

    By way of example, if you buy a bacon sandwich in a cafe, the proprietor is almost certainly pricing it at a level way above simple input cost in order to cover other costs and try and make a profit.

    Because I thought of them as unfairly targeted among many quirky cafes across the land. Had they launched in Manchester or Nottingham or Leeds I doubt anyone would have raised an eyebrow.

    I didn't (and still don't) think the problem is cereal cafes or cat cafes or cupcakes- it's that London wages don't come close to covering rents let alone letting people treat themselves occasionally whether it's at a traditional greasy spoon or a cereal cafe.

    I still think that but their global expansions are not exactly the sort of thing the average small independent business can aspire to.

    When the Cereal Cafe was attacked they came out as gay in the media and they linked the attack to the homophobia they experienced in Belfast. However they seem to have no problem with taking their business to a country where homosexuality is punishable by death and where gay men and women regularly are sent to prison. :facepalm:

    So those of us who predicted the early demise of this project were very wrong. Not only have they survived but they've thrived and opened up more locations. They've even gone international and opened branches in Dubai and Kuwait City. Hats off to them, I suppose.
