When planning for my Taipei trip, I know that there’s several cafes I wanted to visit. But as I’m travelling with my mum who’s not a fan of such cafes, I know I had to compromise. Initially, I wanted to visit the popular Hello Kitty Sweets Cafe for the cute interior but I know for sure my mum will complain because reviews states that the food there is not good at all. Just nice, I stumbled upon Calvin’s photo of Kiko’s Diner. I looked through reviews online and I decided that I will visit it! Because not only it has Hello Kitty, there’s also other Sanrio Characters!
This is how the cafe looked like from outside! It it not the cute, sweet, pastel kind of decoration at Kiko’s but instead a more funky, casual, westernized design. Which makes it different from the usual cute cafes I think.
Wall Mural of the Sanrio family!
Hello Kitty with Chef hat!
Very spacious and I liked the open kitchen concept.
They have cute and stylish wall stickers all around!
They have a dinning booth area and it’s Little Twin Stars!
How cute is this chair!
Art paintings of the Sanrio characters in a different feel.
One of Hello Kitty.
Kiko’s Diner served mainly American Style food. They have brunch menu too!
Sanrio Characters! This is usually placed outside the cafe but I think they brought it in as it was raining when I was there!
Cute menu in the form of a newsletter-ish template. Prices are reasonable, not too expensive. The staff will explain the menu to you before you order, so you won’t be confused.
You can even customize your own pizzas at Kiko’s.
Ordered a Bacon and Ham Omelette with Toast for The Mum. Served with fries and salad.
I ordered the Signature Loco Moco. It’s basically a beef burger patty with cheese served with sunny side up, rice, fries and salad.
The beef patty is really good I must say! Look at that perfect sunny side up!
Also ordered a cafe latte to warm myself up in the cold weather. Love the cute mug! It’s available for purchase!
The Mum is too busy to take a photo with me. But I’m glad The Mum is happy with the food. Of course, bill is on me. LOL.
This is way too cute! Gold statue of Little Twin Star in the washroom!!
Cute signage on the door!
I did not add on any effect, that’s the actual mirror with some filter film!
Cute My Melody wall art!
Yes, I took several of the napkins and name cards back as keepsakes. Too cute!
The cafe is very cosy, staff are friendly and the food is decent. There’s a dining limit of two hours but I believed if there’s no queue or waiting reservations, you will not be asked to leave. However, I still think it’s good to stick to the limit since it’s the house rules. 🙂

If I’m not wrong, I spent a total of NTD780 for this meal, which is about SGD34. I feel that it’s reasonable for two pax. You’ll probably spend more for a similar meal in SG.
Tote bags and coffee mugs available for sale! But it’s a bit pricey in my opinion. Sadly, I was on a budget if not I will get the tote bag!
I would recommend this cafe to Hello Kitty lovers and Sanrio lovers! If you’re a kitty fan but your friends are not, I’m sure they won’t complain if you bring them here!
