Cereal Cafe Sparks Protest
There’s a new trend of cafes that serve only cereal. There’s one in East London that serves Trix, Fruity Pebbles, Golden Grahams and more than 100 other brands, starting at 2.50 pounds (about $3.80) for a small bowl. A large bowl of an American brand cereal with almond milk, strawberries and bananas would cost 6 pounds, or about $9.10, before tax.
The cafe has become something of a symbol of gentrification in the city. Last Sunday night, angry protesters descended on Cereal Killer Cafe and scrawled the word “scum” on the windows. Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks with the BBC’s Emilia Papadopoulos, who has been covering the story.
