Unfortunately for fans, there is no exact date when the cafe will actually open, HOWEVER, we can still join the Hello Kitty Experience by visiting the Hello Kitty temporary cafe Pop up at Irvine Spectrum Center.
The Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up is a cafe designed within a metal shipping container and, according to Irvine Spectrum Center, is set to open in about 2 weeks and is expected to be open for at least 7 months. This pop up cafe is serve everything the actual cafe serves and will be located at at the Giant Wheel Court.
Last week, fans were also able to enjoy the Hello Kitty experience at Glendale Galleria, where the Hello Kitty Food Truck made a special appearance. Take a look some of the photos from the event here!
