Who didn’t have something with Hello Kitty on it in the ’90s and early ’00s? In fact, you still can find the little cat on products all around the globe in 2018, just walk into Claire’s and you’re bound to find something. If you were a huge Hello Kitty fan and begged your mom to let you get the entire notebook and folder collection for school every year, you’re in luck. Now that we’re adults, there is a new Hello Kitty opportunity to enjoy.

Sanrio was founded all the way back in 1962 and then a few years later the company produced Hello Kitty. They’re opening the first-ever (official) Hello Kitty Cafe. The cafe will open in Irvine, California, and according to the company’s press release, it “marks the Hello Kitty Cafe brand’s first-ever cafe concept offering Hello Kitty Cafe favorites and new Afternoon Tea and Cocktail Service programs. The Hello Kitty Grand Cafe is the first and only permanent cafe in the U.S. featuring dual experiential spaces—a fast-casual cafe setting open to the public and a separate private room for reservation-only afternoon tea program and cocktail service.”
