First Hello Kitty ‘Pop-Up’ Cafe Opens in Irvineby Nancy Luna
Irvine, CA – The Irvine Spectrum Center has earned some bragging rights for hosting the first Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up Container.
The temporary cafe, initially expected to debut over the holidays, opened at 11 a.m. today. It was so popular, drawing a line of about 200 people, the store temporarily shuttered. It was expected to reopen later in the day, according to a representative at Spectrum Center.
The cafe is housed in a bedazzled steel shipping container — refurbished with pink and white Hello Kitty hues. The menu features a limited assortment of cookies, pastries and pint-sized cakes, as well as hot and cold beverages.
