Simmer down, Hello Kitty fans… it’s only a café that’s 100% Hello Kitty themed. Actually, don’t simmer down… this is kinda awesome.
Hello Kitty Cafe has long been reserved for only the lovely people of Seoul, South Korea (where they also have a Hello Kitty Cafe of their own). But now, Orange County is getting their own coffee shop and Sanrio destination stateside next summer. Mee-ow.
Hello Kitty Cafe‘s managing partner Allan Tea spoke with LAist at Hello Kitty Con, where he was selling licensed treats from the Hello Kitty Cafe mobile truck. He said the main focus will be on artisan pastries and desserts, as well as savory café fare like salads, sandwiches and sliders — plus coffee drinks. From this forthcoming venture to Hello Kitty airlines, this little cartoon might be running a cult, and we don’t even care.
