Hello Kitty Pop-Up Cafe Truck returning to The Avenue

Hello Kitty CafeGet ready, parents.

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will be returning to The Avenue at White Marsh on August 26, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The mobile pop-up shop is a food truck that offers artisan pastries, petit four mini cakes, and gourmet chocolates with a Hello Kitty twist.

Hello Kitty is the cat-like character created by Japan’s Sanrio. Over the past 40 years, Hello Kitty has become a merchandising phenomenon — appearing on everything from jewelry to dust pans. Sanrio’s website describes her as a little girl from the suburbs of London who lives with her parents, twin sister Mimmy, and her own pet cat Charmmy Kitty.

The Hello Kitty Cafe will be located on the side street by Barnes and Noble.
