Hello Kitty Cafe Has Been Reconstructed

Hi peeps! I missed you all so much! It has been a long time since my last cafe review, just to mention here again, most of the cafe reviews here weren't paid or advertorial, they were just my honest opinions. 
Anyway, finally I had the chance to write about this cute cafe in Hongdae, and it's the lovely Hello Kitty Cafe! 홍대 헬로키티카페 다녀왔어요! Yes yes it's Hello Kitty Cafe! Hands up if you forever a fan of Hello Kitty! So, are you guys ready for those super cute Hello Kitty pictures? Let's get it started!

I have paid a visit at Hello Kitty cafe with my friends recently. She was finally free to have a drink with me in the afternoon, I was happy because it has been so long time since we met 2 months ago and she only asks me to hangout with her when is public holiday because she has to work.
 I warn you now, this one is going to be cute. You may die of cuteness overload today!

If you go up the stairs you will find the Hello Kitty cafe. The cafe is easily recognized because the interior and exterior design both are eye catching.

View the map for the location!

There are plenty of seats in the balcony and the view's pretty nice.

Really cute idea for the chairs at Hello Kitty cafe!

Let's have a look around here first, guys!

Hello Kitty cafe has been fully reconstructed.

It's lovely, ain't it?

There is a huge Hello Kitty at the front entrance! 

There is also a Hello Kitty gift shop! Do you want to take a look?

There is a huge selection of souvenirs of Hello Kitty to choose from, and you'll find them in gift shops!

Hello Kitty Street.

Let's have a look inside the gift shop!

You don't have to pay any taxes!

They sell so many Hello Little Kitty things.
Everything looks really cute! Don't you think so?
I want someone to buy me a Hello Kitty! LOL
Can I have one of those? *puppy eyes*

Cute Hello Kitty in the mirror!

Hey, let's move here and get some drinks!

Welcome to the Hello Kitty cafe!

Now that we're inside! The first moment I entered the cafe, I was like, WOW! Where am I right now? Am I in Hello Kitty cafe? I felt I were somewhere else, fairy tale, perhaps? LOL

Ribbon printed with a metallic gold foil print for a luxury look.

Is anyone really surprised by this? I was really surprised by the huge changes.

When you first step in Hello Kitty cafe, you will see these cute little bookshelf in front of you.

Let's take another section of the room of Hello Kitty cafe, shall we?
When you walk into the cafe, you will be totally surrounded by everything Hello Kitty stuff makes you want to buy.
I love all the cushions, both of them are very cute.
The pretty pink colors look so sweet and feminine.

The walls are adorned with adorable Hello Kitty paintings.

Here is the counter. You can choose from the menu here! They do serve coffee, tea and other beverages as well.
The menu is pretty much the same and served in pretty much the same way they have always been.

The Hello Kitty cafe menu offers a wide range of sandwiches, cakes, brownies, salads and breakfast ideas for every taste, and the food came decorated with Hello Kitty’s signature look.
They offers a variety of cookies, and there were six Hello Kitty themed latte.

Check the status of your order here! I am quite disappointing with the services because the staffs aren't that friendly and kind.

Here such as straw, tissue, spoon, fork, and some flavor ingredients such as sugar that you may find useful and help maintain the taste.

Okay, let's move to the second floor!
This is the second floor, not much different with the first floor.

There are lots of cute Hello Kitty designs around the walls, you seem to be a big fan of hello kitty!

As you can see, there are many seating areas and pink sofa chairs are so adorable that designed with kitty bow to complete.
I really like the homey and cozy feeling in this cafe. We sit here, drink and talk for an hour.
There's tons of Hello Kitty displays.

I love sitting beside the window and watching the people walking down the streets.
They have some cute Hello Kitty pictures on the wall.

I first stopped in this cafe 3 years ago and the cafe was a lot smaller, but now they have Hello Kitty room and it becomes very spacious.

This is the most cute sofa I have ever sat in and I really like this hello kitty sofa! This comfortable sofa great accessory for the room, and great for entertaining the younger kids while the adults sit and talk.

Hello Kitty bedroom is one of the most popular interior theme for a girl's room and this is a really luxurious and extremely cute Hello Kitty bedroom decorated with pastel pink color scheme.

This giant Hello Kitty looks so cute, and attractive! Just great for girls to take selfie with.

This cute dressing table features a beautiful light white finish that gives it a natural and eye catching appeal, also featuring a cute Kitty Shaped mirror with Kitty's face and bow decorating the cute mirror on the pink frame and a matching stool.

Are you a Hello Kitty lover? You gotta be agree with me, the new interior of this cafe is beyond eyegasm, dominated with pink ambience with white, Hello Kitty cafe surely took their image lots of steps ahead!

They had Hello Kitty on the woman's bathroom and the men's bathroom door!
Gentleman restroom.
 Lady restroom

They also provide a password for free WiFi which is very useful!

After you place your order, you will be given a Hello Kitty buzzer alarm and can sit down to wait for it to vibrate.

Hello Kitty cafe has some interesting latest menus such Mango Cheese Ice flakes, Cookies Chocolate Ice flakes and Red Bean Pink Ice flakes which already includes their patented cakes, but the price is slightly more expensive than normal cafes.

This tissue will be loved by everyone.

For drinks, I ordered the Iced Coffee Latte at 4,500 Won. It came decorated with the Hello Kitty signature look. The presentation of the iced coffee latte were nice but nothing special with the iced coffee latte. Iced coffee latte is under average, slightly over priced compares to the quality of coffee. But if you are big fun of Hello Kitty, of course this would be a good place for you. 

My friend ordered the cappuccino at 4,500 Won. The quality was lower than what she looking for, and no Hello Kitty coffee artwork though. It is very overpriced for what we received just because it has the Hello Kitty name!

Here's the Iced Lemon Tea at 4,000 Won with their Hello Kitty mug. They use fresh lemons, I really enjoy and I liked it sweet but not too sweet.

For more information, head over to:
