SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Calling all Hello Kitty fans!
If you’re looking for something sweet, bright, and downright cute to brighten your day amid this ongoing coronavirus pandemic, you’re in luck.
The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck is returning to the Bay Area with four stops planned as part of its 2020 West Coast tour.
The popular cafe on wheels features exclusive Hello Kitty Cafe goodies, edibles, and collectibles.
Some of the offerings include new hand-decorated cookie sets and other sweets like mini cakes (pictured above) and macarons, canvas totes, water bottles, mugs, lunchboxes and more.
Because of the pandemic, the Hello Kitty Cafe truck is enforcing new safety procedures and sanitation efforts for guests, including social distancing markers to ensure physical distancing, hand sanitizer, contactless/cashless transactions, and counters/payment readers being wiped down every 30 minutes.
If you plan on visiting the truck, you are advised to be in good health, wear a face mask, and maintain social distancing.
Don’t forget to bring a debit or credit card – no cash will be accepted.
