Hello Kitty cafe/restaurant in Taipei
This is every Hello Kitty fan’s dream come true: To eat and drink everything Hello Kitty (HK) while being surrounded by uber cute Hello Kitty decor! Only a 5-minute walk away from Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT station, it is a place worth taking a look even if you are not a HK fan. Who knows? You might be enchanted to want to walk in for a seat! This is a cafe/restaurant so it serves mainly cakes and desserts but they also serve western-style main courses such as pastas, burgers, soup-bowls and steaks during lunch and dinner. It’s highly recommended to make a reservation before hand, as we first visited without a reservation and had to return another day because the queue was simply too long.
The front of the Hello Kitty Sweets cafe. You won’t miss it when you walk past. Look at the huge emblem adorning the roof!
The cutest Hello Kitty toys putting on their best pose for customers walking by.
Not surprisingly, everything here is Hello Kitty-themed. You will be greeted by the cute billboard and waiting sign at the queue area.
While waiting for your seat, you can admire the huge selection of Hello Kitty cakes and pastries at the bakery.
A closer look at the cakes and pastries. All exquisitely made.
A perfectly shaped Hello Kitty cake!
More Hello Kitty cakes in every colour and flavour.
Plush Hello Kitty decorations.
Beautiful cosy couch at the queue area.
As with most bakeries, there is a window for the chef to display his/her skills.

These are the large tables on the first floor. They look prettier than the ones on the 2nd floor.
A Hello Kitty in every corner :)
On the 2nd floor, these tables are meant for groups of 3 or more.
Photo frames lining the walls.
Pretty chandelier. Do you see someone on it?

There is an extra wide table with more privacy for the whole family or a huge group of friends. Perfect for a birthday party!
The napkin and feedback forms holder.
This must be the sweetest looking feedback form ever.
Pretty cafe logo on every napkin.
Not forgetting your Hello Kitty place mat. Even the glass surface of the tabletop is etched with the Hello Kitty head.
We ordered a desserts set meal and each dessert comes with a beverage worth NT$180. Just top up the difference if you wish to order a higher priced drink.
wiffy’s 草梅雪泡 was worth NT$230 so the top up was NT$50. The Hello Kitty is starting to dissipate. :O
My 可可雪泡 at the same top up of NT$50. Very cute, though a tad sweet.
wiffy’s order of 日耳曼塔 at NT$330. Expertly decorated. The egg tart was delicious.
My cake set, 香草森林, costs NT$330. Super kawaii!
The cake tasted as sweet as it looked, it’s really nice. Don’t you think you almost couldn’t bear to bite into the white chocolate Hello Kitty? Overall, I liked the cakes more than the drinks as I found the drinks too artificially flavoured and sweet. By the way, the official website (listed below) is very comprehensive and contains the full menu with prices.
The bill holder at the end of your meal. Nothing is without a Hello Kitty look. :)
The cashier counter.
The entrance of the female washroom. I did not confirm with the staff but I could not find a male washroom!
Even the washroom is beautifully decorated. Too bad I couldn’t go in :x
I think if you stand in front of the wash basin, you can see yourself with a Hello Kitty face.
A closer look at basin tap and soap dispenser. And also the pink Hello Kitty toilet bowl :x

wiffy: Cuteness overload! Everything is pink and pretty here. Although I do not have a sweet tooth (I can’t finish my food and drink as they were too sweet for me), I enjoyed myself taking lots of pictures (I even went prepared wearing kitty tee and shades).
