Oat Cuisine

A new venture serving only porridge-based dishes follows trend for ‘brinner’ – using foods associated with breakfast and ‘reinventing’ them for dinner has launched in London. The cafe is brainchild of 31-year-old Nik Williamson who quit his job two years ago in the City to run a street food stall specialising in slow-cooked British meats. A visit to a cafe in Copenhagen which served only porridge convinced him of the value of a similar venue in London. The Porridge Cafe serves 25 different varieties of porridge made from 11 different grains and features sweet as well as savoury options. Prices range from £2.35 for a bowl of basic porridge up to £7 for the hearty versions with meat & veg toppings. Before you judge, do you remember the cereal cafe? The have sold 35,000 bowls of Cap'n Crunch since they opened on 10th Dec.
