You MUST Visit the Hello Kitty Cafe

Fashionably Latte decides to put their journalistic skills to good use (for once) & investigate the new and recently opened Hello Kitty Cafe in Irvine Spectrum.

Admittedly, we were just SUPER THIRSTY for some pink Instagram content, and a little break from manually coloring every wall to match our feeds. Our social media FOMO pushed us to voluntarily drag ourselves on a 2-hour road trip…

Was it worth it? Had the cocktails not been as strong and the pastries as tasty, I would have said not. However, the insta-worthy experience turned into an ‘aesthetic goals’ cheat afternoon, along with some involuntary binge drinking. The deceivingly colorful cocktails are actually a recipe for the embarrassment of the century, which unfortunately, happened on an impromptu Korean TV feature…

If you’re looking for a memorable time with your girlfriends, or a high-tea experience worthy of the traditional British afternoon practice (with a Kawaii twist) - this is the best you’re going to get in California.
