I love Hello Kitty, I love pink and the little girl inside me was very amused to hear of a Hello Kitty Cafe right here in Auckland! OMG. Who knew?
I’ve always wanted to go to a Hello Kitty Cafe in Taiwan or South Korea. I still plan on going to those someday but it’s fun to have a Hello Kitty themed cafe nearby. Yay!
I had an intense Hello Kitty phase as a kid and this just brings back so many memories. Haha. Now I miss my Hello Kitty lamp, phone, radio and other stuff I had. I still have some Hello Kitty on my bed so I guess the phase never left. Haha.
Anyways, are you ready for an overdose on pink?
My sister and I came at a wonderful time. There weren’t a lot of people when we came because it was mid-afternoon and the lunch rush just finished. So I wasn’t too shy about taking lots of photos hehehe..
Love the pink!
I thought they would have more sweets, you know, shaped in Hello Kitty’s face and whatnot. But anyways I got a small chocolatey, nutty tart. I actually really liked this dessert but it was so small and a bit expensive for me. But hey, there’s a Hello Kitty fork!
Excuse me for my haggard face – my sister insisted we post a photo of me with my drink. I tried out a medium cappuccino because I got a large Sweet Chai Latte last time. I guess I’m a bit of a coffee connoisseur, or a recovering coffee addict if you may, and I can say that I got my money’s worth with that cute cup of cappuccino. It was honestly the only reasonably priced item in the menu.
The Hello Kitty cafe is still worth a visit, though, especially when you appreciate cafes not just for their menu but also for their aura. This place is very promising, and I hope that the owner develops the Hello Kitty theme. Turning the notch up on the kitschy kawaii-ness won’t hurt, will it?
Anyway, here are more photos to showcase some of the cafe’s delightful details and bric-a-brac.
