Our childhood dreams have just come true: there’s now a London cafe serving ice cream for breakfast. A whole menu of the stuff, in fact.
A new branch of Four Winters on Portobello Road is launching a breakfast menu of frozen pick-me-ups.
It includes Cereal Crunch, which consists of a bowl of vanilla ice cream with cereal clusters and salted caramel. For fruit lovers there’s Strawberry Yoghurt Parfait with granola, or Mango Yoghurt Smoothie Bowl with fresh strawberries, shredded coconut, almonds and chia seeds thrown into the mix.
If you’re dubious about how healthy it is to eat ice cream before you’ve even put in any work for the day, then take comfort in the fact that a study by Tokyo’s Kyorin University last year found that test subjects who ate the sweet stuff ’immediately after waking up’ were able to function better, with improved reaction times and reduced mental irritation.
That’s a good enough excuse for us!
