Kirby Café, stylized KIRBY CAFÉ, is an official real-life chain of small pop-up restaurants located in Japan based on the Kirby series.

General Information

In 2016, the café's first location opened on August 5th in Osaka, Japan. A few weeks after the first location opened, the second location opened in Nagoya. The third and final location was in Tokyo. After three months of the Kirby Cafés being open, on October the 30th, Nintendo decided to close the remaining locations down. This may have been because of plans for Super Nintendo Land, a theme park that is planned to open in 2020 at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka.

The café featured special food dishes inspired by elements and characters from the Kirby series, including Kirby himself, King Dedede, Waddle Dee, Meta Knight, Whispy Woods, Planet Popstar, Maxim Tomatoes, Invincible Candy, and the Star Rod. The café also included a gift shop where people could buy merchandise based on the franchise. This merchandise included The Sound of Kirby Café, a CD containing new arrangements of music from the Kirby series specifically created to be played as background music in the café. The café contained Kirby-themed decorations. A plush of Waddle Dee would sit with any single guests.

The café re-opened in Tokyo in September 27, 2018 with an updated menu.[1] The menu and line of souvenirs expanded on February 27, 2019.[2] On April 10, 2019, the Kirby Café announced that it would stay open throughout the summer of 2019 until September, and would be known as Kirby Café: Summer. Along with that, the café will receive more menu items and merchandise on June 11th, 2019.[3] A fourth location is set to open in Hakata on August 8, 2019, featuring the updated menu and merchandise.[4]
