Big news, my fellow chocolate lovers: A Cadbury Creme Egg Cafe is coming, and I'm not even yolking. Lest you doubt there is any wonder left in the world, let me be the first to tell you the iconic chocolate morsel is getting the restaurant treatment in the form of a London pop-up. For obvious reasons, this is extremely eggs-citing news.
According to the Daily Mirror, the cafe is set to open on Greek Street beginning Jan. 22. It will span seven weeks, running until March 6. Although, c'mon, the company will be missing a real opportunity if they don't stretch it out through Easter, amirite? The cafe will serve Cadbury Creme Egg-themed delicacies on three floors. Three!
On the ground level, busy aficionados can grab Creme Egg toasties (which, if the definition of a toastie is anything to go by, I'd expect to be a grilled cheese, but with a Cadbury Creme Egg instead of cheese) on the go. On the next floor up, which is set up more like a restaurant, diners can choose from four Creme Egg dishes: Egg and soldiers, strawberries and creme egg, Creme Egg tray bake, and the aforementioned Creme Egg toasties. No word yet on whether any actual food will be served on the second (and final) floor, but an interactive ball pool has been confirmed. What exactly does an interactive ball pool in a Cadbury Creme Egg Cafe actually entails? I have no idea, but I imagine it looks something like this:
In case that doesn't get you stoked enough for the arrival of a Cadbury Creme Egg cafe, the reported prices should. With Creme Egg toasties only costing £2 a pop and the restaurant dishes only running £4, the affordability of this unique venture is just as sweet as the eats it'll serve.
So if you're lucky enough to live in London, Friday marks the first day of the rest of your lives. And by that, I clearly mean the first day it will be socially acceptable — encouraged even — to enjoy chocolate for lunch and dinner. To ensure you score a table at what will inevitably be the tastiest new spot in town, you can book ahead starting tomorrow by using Eventbrite. Hours for this decadent eatery will be every Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and every Saturday and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The rest of us will simply be living vicariously through you, biding our time until a Cadbury Creme Egg Cafe pops up in our neck of the woods. So, uh, post lots of pictures, eh?
