September 29, 2016
It will be the next trending cafe come December!
A full on Sanrio-themed cafe including its signature pink and white colors, character-inspired dishes and cutleries, and cute Kawaii-inspired interiors will greet us this December as Hello Kitty Cafe Philippines launches their flagship store at Uptown Mall in BGC.Hello Kitty Cafe is brought in by the official distributor of Sanrio in the Philippines.
The Hello Kitty cafe has been going around the city opening pop-up cafes; first in Duty Free Paranaque, then in Mall of Asia and now they’re in SM North EDSA.Fun Fact: Hello Kitty is one of Sanrio's Japanese fictional characters, depicted after a Japanese Bobtail cat. While the character's design may have been inspired by a cat's appearance, Sanrio said that she is a friendly, female cartoon character that walks on two legs. Her real name is Kitty White and she has her own cat named, Charmmy Kitty.
The Hello Kitty Dessert Bar offers a light yet impressive menu from the main dishes like pasta and sandwiches down to the desserts like doughnuts and cupcakes. It also serves character lattes, frappes, and fruit shakes.
