After an extended stay by the BT21 gang, it’s great to see a new theme at the ARTBOX Cafe, especially when it’s a kawaii classic like Hello Kitty. She’s brought all her friends too – Little Twin Stars, My Melody & Kuromi, Pompompurin, Cinnamoroll and Keroppi.

The cafe exterior is looking very cute with a pastel picnic theme and I love the little diner hats. But also, why does it never rain sprinkles when I go out?

It’s only been open for a week so they haven’t revealed a lot of the menu or interior decor yet but you can browse the #artboxcafe hashtag on Instagram to see customer pics. As always, they’ll be serving super cute savoury meals, desserts and drinks in the sit down cafe upstairs and you can also pop in for take out drinks and ice cream. There’s plenty vegan, dairy free and gluten-free options too.

And don’t forget the Sanrio boutique, full of kawaii goodies with all the characters and Sanrio Originals items from Japan. There’s even 3 new exclusive enamel pins that you can only buy at the cafe for a special souvenir.

The ARTBOX Cafe is a permanent cafe in Brighton, UK and open 7 days a week. Booking is advised for the sit down cafe but they accept walk-ins too, and the takeout counter and shop are open to everyone. The Hello Kitty & Friends theme will be around until Spring 2023 so plenty time to plan a trip. We hope to visit soon but in the meantime you can read about Nicolette’s visits to the cafe during the Pusheen and Gudetama themes.
