Venue: Cereal Killer Café, LinkStreet, Bullring, B2 4QE; website
When we're not debating how Thomas the Tank Engine eats given he has no arms, we're usually locked in bitter dispute over the planet's finest cereal. That office-based brouhaha has only intensified now that Cereal Killer Café has opened on LinkStreet, bringing with it 120 different boxes of morning munchies. People who walk past immediately begin beaming courtesy of walls lined entirely with 90s references: Zig & Zag cuddly toys, dancing Coke cans, Charles and Di trays, Alf memorabilia and 90s soundtrack featuring Simpsons classic Who Needs The Kwik:E Mart?. The rarest in the array of cereals currently on offer is Bootyo's while top sellers include Reese's Puffs, Fruit Loops and Lucky Charms. We were talked into trying Israel's crunchy Kariot with white chocolate milk, one of 80 flavours available. A detailed breakdown of the effects of the moreish cereal on our palates is, perhaps, a step too far, but rest assured this is, front-to-back, a joy-generating experience. Menu
