There have been several Hello Kitty Cafes to launch in Asia, but one of the newest ones is an LA cafe set to take up residence in SoCal.

This pop-up anime-themed cafe takes the form of a pink shipping container complete with a patio that will serve a variety of sweets from artisanal sodas to baked goods. Since the pop-up is set to remain where it is for about a year, in the coming months, there are plans to expand the menu with dishes that introduce America to even more of Hello Kitty’s lovable group of friends.

While these kinds of anime cafes and restaurants are hardly a novelty in Asia, it is significant that the popularity of these kinds of themed establishments are now beginning to make their way overseas.
