Note: Today is November 1, 2012 – this post is dedicated to Hello Kitty, its her birthday today! This is a request re-post for more information and better photos. Enjoy!
Truth be told, this cafe came to me by surprise, I was not expecting to see it (I didn’t even know it existed). Back track – so one of my Korean friends recommended that I should go to Hongdae since the shops there sell cute little accessories and she told me that there were tons of cute cafes there (no mention of Hello Kitty). So, I went there and I actually went to a different cafe prior to visiting Hello Kitty cafe. Then on one of the turns I saw a big pink building – and there it was the totally kawaii Hello Kitty Cafe, I knew I just had to go there. Fortunately during my visit, there weren’t many customers so it was easier to take photos.
As soon as I got inside, I was amazed on how detailed with Hello Kitty decorations the cafe was, everything in Hello Kitty. This cafe is actually one of my recommended cute cafes to visit in Seoul.
I wanted to order their cappuccino, waffles or cakes, but I just went to another cafe nearby so I didn’t really get a chance to try out their food. Maybe next time, I will – I want to try out the waffles. The prices are actually not so bad (the photo is quite blurry but the prices are shown a bit coffee is like 3000 Won = about $3.00 USD).
Do they have a website address?

How much are the drinks/food typically?
– Drinks are about 3000-6000 won ($3-$6 USD) depending on which ones your planning to get. Food varies but around 5000-10000 won ($5-$10 USD)
How do I get there?
– From Hongdae Station (Honggik University) take exit 5 and walk straight, turn left where you see Sinsun and walk 2 blocks, then turn right. It will be on your left (moreover, if you walk pass Hello Kitty cafe, you will see Coffee Prince cafe and the Cat Cafe).
