The world's most famous kitten is getting her very own cafe this summer. Hello Kitty has a huge following around the globe that borders on the obsessive, as there are not just pencil cases and costumes, there's also high end jewellery and - wait for it - bank accounts, with Kitty's face on cheques and debit cards. So it was only a matter of time before we got a cafe themed around the inimitable cartoon character and her little red bow.
The cafe will serve afternoon tea and plenty of sweet treats, among them Mama’s Homemade Apple Pie Biskie, inspired by Kitty's favourite snack. A biskie, in case you don't know, is part biscuit part cookie, and is one of the novelties the hosting bakery Cutter & Squidge came up with when they opened. Naturally there'll be lots of toys to take home too.
The Hello Kitty pop-up opens on June 1st for three months.
