A new Kirby Cafe branch will appear temporarily in Nagoya, Japan. Benelic has opened a new webpage for Kirby Cafe Nagoya, which will be open from September 15, 2022, to February 5, 2023. On August 12, 2022, the company will open reservations for cafe attendances up to November 30, 2022.
The Nagoya branch will have several exclusive entries on its menu. One of them will be a Waddle Dee-printed burger served with meat pasta and warm vegetables. The other will feature a hot dog with fried shrimp put literally inside Kirby’s mouth. Visitors will also be able to order a Kirby-decorated peach parfait, and they can also bring the glass home by paying extra.
A store selling Kirby-themed merchandise will also appear nearby the cafe, and anyone will be able to visit it without needing a reservation. Benelic will reveal the goods lineup at a later time.
As of this writing, the Kirby Cafe has two permanent branches in Japan. The game character-branded cafe used to appear sporadically since at least 2016. The first permanent cafe appeared at Tokyo Skytree Town Solamachi in late 2019. Benelic then launched the second branch on Kyushu island at Canal City Hakata in Fukuoka. The company has yet to announce whether it has any plans to turn the new Nagoya branch into a permanent one as well.
Kirby Cafe Nagoya will appear on the second floor of Nagoya Parco from September 15, 2022, to February 5, 2023.
