Set to open its doors to the public on 12th May 2016 (Thursday) at 11:30am, Singapore welcomes its first Hello Kitty Cafe at Changi Airport Terminal 3’s Arrival Hall. Specially designed to emulate Singapore’s lush ‘garden city’ vibe, Hello Kitty Orchid Garden also draws inspiration from the country’s national flower – the orchid.
Conveying a sophisticated, elegant and feminine feel and concept, the cafe – also the world’s first 24-hour Hello Kitty cafe – offers both locals and tourists round-the-clock respite with a selection of delectable food and beverages in a rustic and whimsical setting. Decked out in purple, green and white hues as well as an array of lush blooms, the cafe would feature all-day breakfast delights, hearty mains, desserts, and are all served on beautiful wooden boards and cutlery specially customised with the exclusive cafe logo.
Introducing Singapore-exclusive Hello Kitty mascot and merchandises as well as a locally-inspired menu, Hello Kitty Orchid Garden would make for a memorable dining experience with many firsts for fans of this popular Sanrio character. Fans and diners can also look forward to posing with 3D life-sized figurines of Hello Kitty in various designated photo spots, and at the same time, bring home momentos from the cafe’s retail corner.
