We are seeing a surge of cute characters theme cafe in Singapore popping up in the late first and early second quarter of 2016. Will this be a continual, sustainable trend? Let’s observe!
Characters Theme Cafe In Singapore
A common traits with characters cafe is that they attracts queue when they started and when the trend fad, queue is missing.
Pokemon Cafe @ EWF
200 Victoria Street, #04-05, Bugis Junction Singapore 188021
Tel: +65 6338 0135
Opening Hours: Daily 1100 to 2130
Pokemon Cafe @ EWF is the latest addition of a cute characters theme cafe in Singapore after the Hello Kitty Orchid Garden and the recent Pompomurin Cafe. A pity it is only a pop-up available for a limited period of time.
It will begin from 27 May 2016 to 31 July 2016.
The cafe serves a very limited menu with 4 Mains, 4 desserts and 4 beverages.
The Pokemon pop-up Cafe @ EWF is back with second rendition from 24 November 2016. This round it is featuring characters from Pokémon Sun and Moon games. We have yet tried but we heard lots of negative comments about the food, service and the wait.
Hello Kitty Orchid Garden

The theme at Hello Kitty Cafe in Singapore is orchid garden. As such the cafe is filled with beautiful orchid plants throughout the space. And of course, 2 Hello Kitty mascot are around for OOTD session too.

Queue has been forming since its launched on 29 April. I am not familiar with Pompompurin but I understand that it is a Golden Retrieve. It serves lots of food worthy for the square.
Dhoby Xchange #B1-36, Singapore 238826
Opening Hours: Sunday – Thursday 1100 to 2100; Friday to Saturday 1100 to 2230
This may be lesser known to most since its interior decoration does not attract. It is neither cute nor hipster. But it serves food with cute characters. To dine there, isn’t as convenience. You can’t pop in whenever you feel like it. You need to purchase the dinning voucher.

The lazy and unmotivating egg, Gudetama cafe is now in Singapore. Lots egg dishes on the menu. Considerably decent food served since Gudetama is very fussy about its food.
May be a good way to have the characters cafe is to have it as pop-up with different characters each time. One good mode is to have it during the 2 major school holidays. I see that this works well especially in Hong Kong.
