Dublin Might Be Getting A Cereal Café And People Aren't Too Happy About It

"What's the point of hipster shit if it's two years behind? Open somewhere that sells chips in trócaire boxes."

Cereal Killer Cafe 7

Last week The Guardian's travel section described our beloved Stoneybatter as "something of a little Williamsburg by the Liffey", much to the disgust of anyone who actually lives in the area.

Then yesterday, The Irish Times reported that the Northern Irish twins behind the Cereal Killer cafés in London have their sights set on Dublin as their next location

Now, don't get us wrong, pop-ups bring colour and excitement to our city, but do we really need a café where a bowl of cereal is going to set us back the guts of a fiver?! 

From a quick glance at social over the past 24 hours it seems that lots of people are of this opinion...

There's a Cereal Cafe opening in Dublin. What's the point of hipster shit if it's two years behind London? Open...

Some people are calling hypocrisy on the whole thing

However, we'd be sorted for a name if it actually does go ahead...

So whatcha reckon? 

Would you be in favour of a Cereal Killer café in Dublin, or would you be part of the anti-gentrification brigade protesting against it?
