    When my best friend Becky comes to visit, we’ve found ourselves with a few different traditions. While they cover a broad section of things including different animals we love to befriend, food choices we’ll often make, places to visit and photos to take. One of the main ones, when we’re in London, involves heading to Camden. Normally this is on a Sunday before Becky needs to catch the train home. So, when I recently got the chance to hire a…

    When Cereal Killer Cafe first opened on Brick Lane in 2014 it’s safe to say it got a lot of flack in the press. Hipster jokes were made and the owners, twins Alan and Gary Keer, came under fire for charging £4 for a bowl of cereal even though their concept is a little more complicated than that. Despite this initial blip, Cereal Killer Cafe has gone from strength to strength and last year the twins opened a second, much…
